The venue was quite quiet: not many people would have heard about this gig. The Creases [5/10] came onstage when there were only a few people scattered sitting around the edges of the small venue. Nonetheless, they didn’t let this get to them and only slightly nervously played through their heavily sixties sounding set list. They got so into their music that a couple of the band came out into the audience while playing. Despite them playing very well, the audience struggled to become fully immersed in the vintage sound due to someone in the audience heckling rudely all the way through.
After a brief interval, it was now time for the up and coming London-based band Shy Nature [7/10] to play. The audience had moved much closer to the stage but unfortunately the venue had still not filled out completely. In spite of this, they managed to use this intimate setting to their advantage by interacting with the members audience. During the set, they played some of their older songs, moving on to a never before heard single, Shoulders. This built upon the success of their latest EP, whilst introducing a novel soft element to their sound. They then finished on their new single Lie Back, which embodied their classic sound. All the audience were up on their feet, experiencing this talented band, who will in no doubt be big in the future.
