When Talos left the stage, their sound was a clever lead in to the synth-y, post-punky, indie Editors, they had created an excitement that rippled across the crowd. And when they appeared, playing ‘The Boxer,’ Tom’s voice steadied the applause as every ear wanted to hear his deep distinctive sound in its full glory. The fans were transfixed. More lights, then, flooded the stage as the band launched into their second song, the rocky ‘Sugar.’ With more of the crowd now starting to throw their arms up and really enjoy themselves, the band played the single off their newest album ‘Hallelujah (So Low)’ and it was met with a wonderful reception. This song was obviously well known and loved by the sheer volume of the crowd, singing in time with Tom.
Next, the band played some older favorites including, the harder ‘All Sparks’ and melodic classic ‘An
End Has a Start.’ The crowd was sea waving arms and bobbing heads, the energy was electric; the band’s performance was exceptional. From here the setlist alternated mainly from the 2005 album ‘The Backroom’ and 2018 release ‘Violence.’ The latest release from the band shows of their harder sound while still keeping the powerful synth. ‘A Tone of Love’ was sounded out and visible joy erupted from the fans for this stunning, spirit-raising track.
