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.

Embedded image permalink

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!

VMG Live shows Wolverhampton really does have talent!

vmg picture

Yesterday, hundreds of screaming girls attended View My Gig Live in Wolverhampton featuring some of the country’s finest new music talent, raising money for Teenage Cancer Trust and they were not disappointed.

Aiden

Fans were treated to an array of performances from up and coming artists including singer and guitarist Joseph Neal, Aiden Hancock and Liberty Grant who opened the event with a powerful rendition of ‘Say Something’ by Christina Aguilera, with other artists including the extremely talented, Marc Williams and Leo Golden Child plus special guests.

The second View My Gig Live had many highlights including an exclusive duet with crowd favourites Josh Brennan and Alex Wallhead who left the crowd wanting more. Another highlight was Luke Towler, who was a firm fan favourite who livened up the crowd with his rendition of 5 Seconds of Summer – She Looks So Perfect whilst also making fans swoon by singing in both English and Spanish.Luke

Many fans got the chance to meet their idols, take photos and have a chat both before and after the artists sets, the gig was relaxed where artists joined the crowd to support other artists on stage.

The event was headlined by last year’s Britain’s Got Talent finalist Jordan O’Keefe who impressed the crowd with his raw vocal talent and use of loop pedal which provided a unique twist to his set. Jordan wowed the crowd with a range of both covers and original songs making them his own proving he definitely has talent.

Although many fans by this point seemed disinterested, Jordan was a great choice for headline act, showcasing great talent and stage presence and we recommend you go and see him live!

Here at Brumotions we give the overall gig 4/5 Microphones!
