The sharpest I’ve personally seen Logical Drama, playing a song you only finished that day is a risk however Logical Drama flaunted the fact that they took the risk and accomplished with clever talent. One of Logical Drama’s best tracks is Giant there is a slight indie rock vein running through it with pure catchiness from the grimy guitars and absurd lyrics. The contrast of playing Escape from Reality then, Through my Eyes, saw the maturity that has grown within the past 7 months. As well as the high standard of flair in their music, confidence and stage presence is starting to build that ladder of creativity.
Without a doubt South Wall Corner wherever and whenever they perform they create this peaceful, cosy atmosphere. It’s something different that captures minds and disorders people’s imaginations. To make that intimacy picture-perfect, Jack should bring the drums forward, this way every little nook and cranny of South Wall Corner Club is enjoyed in even more of an original way. I’m a sucker for x amount of harmonies, SWCC have harmonies spot on. SWCC somewhat remind me of a completely stripped back, The XX. Birds of War has been updated and unmistakably has made it my favourite tune; with the refreshing instrumental SWCC are stepping up a gear or two.
Manchester based Flesh are a band visual and musically endowed. First band of the night to create a contrast between their walk on song and their actually music was these. Walking on to a raving dance tune got everyone awake and intrigued – somewhat an exceptionally clever idea. Snot poppers Flesh are all about distortion, reverb and lots of it; dressed like throwbacks from the 90’s Flesh were just something different that spiced the line-up, up.
Another band making that contrast between their walk on song and their music was headliners Delamere. From Kayne West too their indie ambiance it was a spot on contrast. Mixing old tunes with new kept the set fresh. Delamere unquestionably have become one of Staffordshire favourite bands. The professionalism, music and confidence is superior. As a live band they have it all. Heart is by far the track of the night. The mesmerizing performance from Will and James both on the floor tom drums it was a refreshing spray of how amazing Delamere are. Their next single Head Strong has a grungy indie feel, recorded at Parr Street Studios and released by Scruff of the Neck records, it’s got potential right there to be a cracker in the local scene and beyond.
