First on the bill on the evening was singer-songwriter Parasol, whose acoustic songs and witty audience interactions started the evening off very nicely.
After Parasol came Inner State, a young indie rock band who played a nice, short but snappy set of tracks.
Following on from Inner State were Grigio, who I found to be a great new discovery for me; having not heard of them before I went away from the evening wanting to hear more from them.
I knew that I was going to enjoy The Seamonsters, having enjoyed the few singles and demos they had previously released online, but I did not realise just how good they were going to be live.
Throughout their set, which included a cover of The Ting Tings’ ‘Shut Up and Let Me Go’, the six piece showed tightness well beyond their years, with, in my opinion the band actually sounding better live then they do in their recordings.
I think one of the highlights of their set for me was their song ‘Ignite The Lie’, with its infectious jingly guitar riffs, but also I found The Seamonsters to be equally as captivating when they slowed it down for songs like ‘Afraid of Heights.
Overall, The Seamonsters are very, very promising.
