Venue: Electric Brixton, London
Nearest Tube: Brixton (Victoria Line)
I’d been waiting along time (November to be exact) for this gig, having booked tickets last year I later found out a band I’d been enjoying recently were supporting as well; what a result.
‘The Sherlocks’ as support was music to my ears (excuse the pun), from Bolton upon Dearne near Sheffield they came to London on the back of being announced as support for Kings of Leon on their two northern gigs of their upcoming U.K. tour. First time at this venue and it was a wonderful discovery, the Yorkshire lads ripped through their material and I found myself singing along to every song as I’d been listening to them an awful lot recently. From ‘Will You Be There’, ‘Last Night’ and most recent single released ‘Chasing Shadows’ it was a flawless set from the lads with fans favourite ‘Was It Really Worth It’ getting a big response from the crowd.
Onto the headline act Australian band ‘DMA’s’ entered the stage with their 90’s inspired fashion and swagger to boot. Their album ‘Hills End’ was released back in early 2016 and opening with track one from the album ‘Timeless’ it almost took the roof off. The album is a strong debut and the set was obviously based around this with the crowd singing along to pretty much every song, finishing with ‘Delete’ which has gone Gold back in Australia it was a great way to round off a top gig.
