The straightforwardness of Empires’ set — composed almost exclusively of easily danceable, mid-tempo rockers — made for a great way to ease into the festival’s second day. Though the setlist was made up entirely of new material, the meticulously crafted songs gave a strong impression of familiarity, melding the sonic muscle of ’90s alt-rock with the heartbreaking sentimentality of ’80s new wave — all the while retaining the nostalgic comfort of both. There were no surprises to be found here, but everything was in its place.
