Kingsland Road are Dirty Dancing into our hearts!

Kingsland Road impressed their dedicated fans at their SOLD OUT show at the O2 Academy in Birmingham last night with a jam packed, energetic performance!

The East London formed group came to Birmingham as part of their debut tour across the UK.

Four support acts were included during the gig, acoustic performers Jess Havens and Ellie Rose’s vocals wowed the sold out crowd during their own twenty minute sets!

Then Canary Swing took to the stage, bringing an incredible amount of energy and talent with them that left the crowd wanting more, before rapper Jessica Alice took to the stage with an equal and amazing amount of stage presence to those before her.

Then came the moment everyone had been waiting for, Kingsland Road ran onto the stage and performed ‘Walk Away’, a track set to appear on their EP, which their highly dedicated fans had already learnt the lyrics to and proceeded to shout them back to the ecstatic lads.

The boys incredible set featured tracks for both the old and new fans, including a small, hilarious performance of ‘My Dog’ for the older fans and a cover of Ellie Goulding’s ‘Burn’, which was posted to their YouTube channel in February.

The group, more popularly known for appearing on the tenth series of The X Factor, had the packed venue singing and dancing along throughout their entire performance, ensuring that everyone was thoroughly entertained!

Kingsland Road rounded off their incredible performance with their debut single ‘Dirty Dancer’, which is another track to feature on the groups debut EP!

We definitely recommend going to see Kingsland Road live as they have the talent (both singing and dancing) and an impressive setlist, which is without a doubt, going to take them far. We have no doubts, that – like they did last night – the group will keep you thoroughly entertained and leave you wanting more!

Brumotions gives their performance 5/5 Microphones!

It’s Never Too Late to love Kingsland Road

On June 1st, many teens flocked to the Islington Academy in London for the FutureProof party, featuring FutureProof (obviously!), Loveable Rogues, Rewind and of course, Kingsland Road – just to name a few of the acts which appeared on the jam packed line-up.

We recently reported on Kingsland Road and how much we LOVE what they’re doing and after hearing their new material, which will feature on their EP (out August 17th) – it will definitely not disappoint!

The band seem to have steered away from the ‘X-Factor’ image that had swamped them – swapping those brightly coloured, matching suits for a more edgier style, which also seems to be reflected within their new musical direction.

But don’t worry!

This is NOT a bad thing! Kingsland Road are still those cheeky charmers that you (and we) fell in love with – we are FINALLY seeing the REAL Kingsland Road through the music that they always wanted to produce! – On their own terms!

The band, consisting of Jay, Josh, Connor, Thompson and Matt (Left to Right) sent the venue into a complete uproar as many ecstatic fans had traveled from around the country to hear the group’s new material.

Their set was both energetic and fun, with a number of new tracks being performed including Shoreline and Walk Away. However, the lads did break out into some of our older favourites like Lemon Tree which featured some good ‘ol Kingsland Road thrusting!

Kingsland Road’s cover of Ellie Goulding’s Burn had both the crowd and the band jumping, leaving behind an electric atmosphere and had everyone claiming that it was better than the original!

The fivesomes vocals were undeniably strong (even though Connor tweeted that he had a cold), their set seemed particularly polished, even though it’s a fairly new set-up and these songs have been performed only once or twice before!

The friendship between the lads is obvious within their stage presence and it’s clear to see why they perform so well with one another!

Kingsland Road finished their set with Heaven Knows – during which a number of incredibly lucky girls were serenaded by the boys as they jumped into the crowd, a smaller numbers of those girls also got particularly friendly with both Connor and Josh as they tugged up their shirts to feel their abs (looks like someone has been hitting the gym).

Here at Brumotions, we definitely recommend that you see Kingsland Road live!

The band are embarking on their own tour in August, in an effort to promote their new single ‘Dirty Dancer’ and their EP, both of which are released in August!

Although the Birmingham gig has already SOLD OUT, why not try and see the lads elsewhere as the journey will be well worth it!

One of our favourite boy bands, Kingsland Road have just dropped their new cover of John Legend’s All of Me.

At first we were a little apprehensive – to say the least – as the boys are known for their upbeat interpretations of songs – however, after listening (in Nandos might we add). We, at Brumotions absolutely love it and we know you will too.

Kingsland Road, made up of Jay, Josh, Connor, Matt and Thompson recently burst onto the music scene gaining a loyal following of fans known as KLanders. (find out a little more about them in our previous introducing post).

Their cover of All of Me will make you instantly smile with their infectious personalities which come across in the song and the video giving the slow song – The Kingsland Treatment.

Here at Brumotions, we have heard many covers of this song and Kingsland Road’s will not disappoint – they make the song their own with their on-point harmonies and great individual vocals, mixed with the use of ukulele and box drum giving the song an instant summery, feel good factor and something that’s a little bit different to the covers you are used to hearing.

With a combination of good chemistry, great style, dreamy good looks and those obvious cheeky personalities- and yes, we clocked that little wink to the camera -We think it’s clear that Kingsland Road are currently one of our favourite artists.

We can’t wait to see what the band have planned next as they are very talented… and it also helps that they’re rather attractive.
