Although they’ve performed some amazing covers of Lorde and Arctic Monkeys, this electronic pop band stuck to their 2013 album The Bones of What You Believe during their Las Vegas debut. Highlights included “Recover,” “Lies” and “The Mother We Share.” Lead singer Lauren Mayberry, whose voice is sometimes reminiscent of a female Michael Stipe, riled the audience up with her mousy (in a good way) vocals as band members Iain Cook and Martin Doherty switched between synthesizers, samplers and guitar. Their talent, paired with an impressive light show, made a good bookend for anyone who passed on the iHeartRadio Festival.
