Previously unseen and unheard of by us here at Fret Buzz, Zest start off the night beautifully with an intimate duo set. A perfect introduction to a night of varying styles and influences. Delicate guitar work and melodies topped off with graceful vocals from both, Zest look to be a band to look out for.
Next up we had Cage White to contrast Zest with an experimental almost shoegazey set. With Julian (from Dreamer Joe) on bass and Emma on guitar, it was as if they’d imprisoned Jack White and squeezed all the left over ideas and riffs out of him to create a new sound, not too dissimilar from some obscure Dead Weather B-Side. Jack White in a cage?! Cage White? I think I’m on to something. Anyway, this band have a huge amount of potential to make something new and exciting – just need to go louder and choose a focus.
With another change of direction, Electric Catfish take to the stage. Keys, guitar, drums and powerful vocals, these guys have created a suweet well rounded act. Catchy as anything and a right pleasure to listen to. We’ve seen them before support XOCKHA at the very same venue with a consistently great performance. Until next time Electric Catfish, looking forward to seeing what comes next.
Retaining introductions, Signals return to The Blacksheep Bar with an outstanding performance. The last time we saw them at Blacksheep Bar was Halloween like a million years ago, and we’ve missed you! As usual, Signals played such a great gig. Awesome vocals with a bit of keys, Ellie takes the forefront hyping the crowd as she goes. Alex on bass, mental as ever, Mikey doing his thing on guitar (how do that?) and Ryan on drums at the back holding it all together (beautiful drum kit). With all the classics and a couple of new tracks which were just as great, Signals finished an eclectic night of new and established talents off with a bang.
Such a great night! Thanks to everyone involved, good job. Time to hit the bar…
