It’s time for alternative rock to shine again with Deaf Havana giving you all the good times and good vibes with the new album-centric tour. With their new album being a strong staple in this new stage of their career and being supported by two great rising stars in UK artists, it’s time to see how well this pays off for all of the bands.
Opening the night were alternative rock band from Leeds who were ready to bring their strong mainstay into the venue. Dinosaur Pile Up (7) are a trio who have a great old school knack in their sound which was portrayed pretty well in the venue. With 3 albums of music to smash your heads with, they split the duties between their most recent two for a much more vibrant and fresh set. It didn’t provide much of a stage presence for the group, but when they smashed through tracks such as ‘Friend Of Mine’ and their set closer ’11:11’ it gave them a newer chance to show off their latest material. The band did very strong and despite being dealt with the ‘open band syndrome’, they pulled it off well and opened the night quite strongly.
Picking up the pace a bit more were the mysterious London band Dead! (8) who are definitely pushing themselves harder than ever before. With this bands mystique from their social media it is safe to say that they are a group who will have their work cut out for them when they hit the stage supporting someone like Deaf Havana, but they pulled it out of the bag! Showing off different sides of their bands character from the onslaught of ‘We Are Dead’ to the calmer and more anthem-like track ‘Alaska’, it made their set feel much more dynamic and exciting. Whilst the sound came through as a bit hit and miss during their set, their closer ‘You’re So Cheap’ made everything feel that much more rounder and ended another set on another high note.
To bring the night to its close with a showcase of their amazing new release, Deaf Havana (9) brought so much passion and a gripping live show that spans a lot of their career. With James Veck-Gilodi’s vocals running through so strongly throughout the entire set, whether it be through the more emotional tracks like ‘Anemophobia’ to the more bouncy and crowd moving tracks like ‘Sing’. The band also showed how much they can push through their sound with an alternate version of ‘The Past Six Years’ which, in comparison to the original sound that the track has, gives it a bit more of an acoustic and somewhat folksy life-force behind the song and shows more of the bands versatility when it comes to their writing. Overall, the band brought a tonne of different elements to the stage and made the entire night worth it with over an hour of material to smile, dance and cry to.
With Confidence are continuing to support their cheerful brand of pop punk, providing Long Night from their recent album Better Weather with a brand new music video.
