The delayed effects in the chorus reminded me of the band White Lies, mixed with the Crocodiles and with vocals similar to The Vaccines. The cool instrumental found in ‘Temptation’ reminded me of DIIV and Jimmy Eat World. It was the perfect blend of indie rock in the ideal setting.
My favourite song was ‘Cross’; the fuzz was driven and loud, while the clear introduction really stood out for me. I loved the solo with its fast beat and rhythm. The crowd really got into this one and so they should have; it was very minimal, but in a good way – real rock. I highly enjoyed this track. You can’t beat the enhanced realness to a band’s sound when it is played live right in front of you.
The 40-minute set was short but sweet and, although my journey was long, this was so worth it. Lusts were awesome. I am definitely inclined to buy the album ‘Illuminations’ - I miss the experience already and there isn’t one bad track. It’s one that you can let roll through straight from start to finish. If looking for a night out in London, you should also consider Angel as a go-to place too. It’s a really nice area full of bars, venues and vintage boutique shops. Last year I saw Maxi Jazz from Faithless do a DJ set up the road – such fun times.
