In Hindsight’s tunes are dangerously catchy!

On June 1st, Midlands based pop/rock band In Hindsight joined the jam packed line-up for the FutureProof party at the Islington Academy in London, alongside FutureProof themselves, Kingsland Road, Jake Sims and Canary Swing with headliners Loveable Rogues, just to name a few.

Two members of the band – Issac and Michael (as Daniel was revising for his exams… Good luck Daniel!) warmed up the audience with an exclusive acoustic set list as a preview of what’s to come on their own tour in July.

The band performed an array of original songs including ‘Sweet Valentine’ and their next single ‘Dangerous’, which left fans screaming back the lyrics to the two ecstatic lads.

They also performed many covers including Pharrell’s  number one hit ‘Happy’ and Michael Jackson’s ‘Billy Jean’, which was a great addition to their set.

We have previously seen the full three piece band and were impressed with their set, therefore we were slightly disappointed that we weren’t getting the full In Hindsight experience. However, even with the acoustic set, both Michael and Issac really impressed the audience and left many of them wanting to find out more about the group.

Check out their new single ‘Dangerous’ below!

And why not book tickets to see the group live on their UK tour in July with special guests Orchard Hill.

Brumotions gives them 3/5 Microphones!

All about McBusted!

After facing their own demons in their own band counterparts and selling out a number of shows across the UK (including three already held in Birmingham alone), the year old band, McBusted triumphed at their fourth and last show in Birmingham!

McBusted – the joint collaboration between one of our favourite group’s McFly and 2/3 of our childhood obsession Busted – performed at the LG Arena in Birmingham last night, much to the excitement of the energetic crowd!

Danny, Dougie, Matt, James, Tom and Harry (Left to Right) entertained the crowd immensely from beginning to end, with an array of Busted and McFly singles, including ‘Air Hostess’ & ‘Five Colours In Her Hair’, a Jackson 5 cover – which featured some pretty smooth moves from the lads, as well as a bunch of much loved innuendos and dirty jokes!

With a line-up of McFly and Busted members, it was obvious that the lads were going to pull out all the stops. However, unlike the previous Birmingham shows, which featured a number of songs on top of a UFO above the sound desk.

That’s right people, McBusted performed on a UFO.

 The last Birmingham show were left to question where the UFO had disappeared to, as many of us had spoken so highly of this section of the show!

However, not all was lost as the Busted boys showed up on stage in a DeLorean (and we’ll forever wonder whether it was the real one… if so, we’re jealous!)

And three inflatible boobs turned up during their performance of ‘Year 3000’ – Probably wasn’t the best show for the young people attending.

The relentless energy from the McBusted group was shared by their highly intense and dedicated fans as everyone in the venue screamed, sang and cheered to their hearts content.

The sixsome rounded off their incredible setlist with McFly’s ‘All About You’ and Busted’s ‘Crashed The Wedding’, which has us oldies reminiscing about the good ‘ol days, while still singing and dancing along.

With a McBusted album on the way, we wish the boys all the best in the future, whether that be in their respected groups or McBusted!

And we definitely recommend that you see them at your next given opportunity!

Brumotions give their performance 5/5 Microphones!
