Little Comets took to the stage just after half nine, and after their opening track, they stopped to share that guitarist Mickey was going to miss the gig after the early arrival of his baby. Not ones to cancel, guitarist Reuben managed to learn the set in just one day; which the crowd were extremely grateful for.
Their kitchen sink indie sound is authentic, intriguing, upbeat and yet at the same time manages to be tranquil. On the contrary; it was tracks Dancing Song and Joanna that really got the crowd excited.
Frontman Robert Coles later took the time to slow things down and spoke about how the next track; The Blur, The Line & a Thickest of Onions could be related to at this time in our lives with all the ‘bad’ things going on in the world. A refreshing, perfect way to slow it down.
Little Comets’ humour and fearless approach to music is what captivates audiences – laughing and interacting with the crowd, they made everyone in the room feel a sense of connection with themselves and one another.
Support on the night came from indie-pop outfit Eliza and the Bear. The waiting crowd warmed to their infectious, feel-good anthems.
