It’s the seventh night of Moose Blood’s sold out tour and fans are patiently waiting to fill Manchester’s Sound Control to the brim, it’s already been established that with a sold out intimate gig like this one, it’s going to be rowdy and memorable.
First to hit the stage are Irish alt-rock five-piece Greywind. Female lead vocalist Steph O’Sullivan has a eclectic energy about her as she stomps around the stage, kneeling down by the speakers and singing her heart out into a sixties swing microphone. Greywind are one to watch out for, having played a great set, it’s clear how talented they are.
Next to the stage are the Dublin group The Winter Passing, their sound is a mixture of everyting and the choppy combination of both a male and female singer is akin to the likes of We Are The In Crowd and brings to mind Part Of Me by Neck Deep. They did a top job of keeping everyone entertained before Moose Blood and had a laugh with the crowd, proclaiming that one of their songs went out to all of the stoners in the crowd due to the date being 4/20.
Moose Blood have just signed to Hopeless Records which is nothing but good news for the band especially on their headline tour. Girls Just Wanna Have Fun was the perfect song to be playing as the lights went down for Moose Blood’s arrival, they hopped on stage and opened their set with Swim Down, the guys look out into the crowd as everyone is yelling the lyrics back to frontman Eddy. Their setlist was stuffed with all the hits from their debut album I’ll Keep You In Mind. Sparkling new tracks Glow and Honey are two eagerly awaited songs from the crowd.
Manchester loved Moose Blood and their absolutely gleaming performance, keep your eyes peeled for a second album which you can pre-order or simply purchase on August 5th, The boys are back on tour in Europe over September and the UK in October, so if you missed out this time get on the next!
