Can I just say firstly that I love this venue. The sound quality is fantastic, no wonder why musicians always have a ball there! The atmosphere is always on a high, the crowd is always dancing, it’s just awesome.
Unfortunately, I did miss the first support act, but I did manage to catch the second act, WALKER.
Lead singer Jordan Walker’s voice was SO mesmerising. I especially loved the band’s cover of U2’s Where The Streets Have No Name. They could almost be a U2 tribute band! The instrumentation from the boys was tight and overall a killer set.
The night, of course, was in celebration of the band Wire Bird and the release of their new single, Always. Featuring a great instrumental breakdown in the middle with an intense build up of guitars and drums, the song is definitely a hit.
If I had to describe to somebody who hadn’t listened to Wire Bird before, I would say that if you like Temper Trap, Vance Joy or even a bit of MGMT, then you will definitely like this band.
The vocals by lead singer Tim Cook and harmonies by guitarists James Eynaud and John Longley are always in sync and soothing. (Hooray for three part harmonies!)
Their instrumentation, again, a massive highlight, especially live as you almost get lost in the music. You can see in their stage presence and in their music that they are passionate musicians. Playing songs old and new and even an rendition of James Bay’s Hold Back The River, the energy on stage never stopped. (Special mention to John whose energy was bouncing off the stage, he is a great performer.)

The boys also revealed two songs that will be featured on their forthcoming EP to be released later in the year.
