It’s not customary to talk up support bands but tonight is one of those rare nights of extraordinary value and every act is out to make the best impression. Indigo Husk bound onto the stage like children to a waterslide. Dressed as a bunch of early 90s skater punks they masquerade behind an air of casual inadequacy and slacker cool. But they’re actually brilliant! Energetic and technically proficient with a swag of clever upbeat tunes, delivered with an irresistible vigour and enthusiasm.
Low Island are a more politely polished but no less enjoyable outfit. Tidy drums and guitars layer over dense bass lines. At times it becomes a little synth-heavy but they really know how to work it, countering with passive vocal melodies that are almost too ambient to be lyrical. Lead singer Carlos Posada possess an effortless falsetto of enviable clarity that sparkles and illuminates their lush sonic landscape gently like a fine crescent moon. Hypnotic single “The Whole World Tucked Away” leads into “Holding It Down” effectively closing out the set just as it gets going.
