We recently returned to the Frog & Fiddle for a tremendous and well-anticipated line-up consisting of Rivers, Mass Spectrum, Floorboards, All Ears Avow and headline act Courage My Love.
Fortunately we managed to catch the end of Mass Spectrums set, and as per usual these guys were nothing short of great, their unique and catchy sound radiated through the crowds and set a great mood for the night.
Floorboards were on next, and wow what a great performance they put on. This four piece definitely know what they’re doing, integrating emo with rock sounds to put on an unforgettable show. ‘Whiskey’ balanced passionate vocals and catchy guitar whereas songs like ‘Feel’, a personal fave, were more stripped back allowing those hard-hitting vocals to take you back to those emo routes. Engaging with the crowd from go, with vocalist Jay even joining the crowd, these guys are a must see for a tight and passionate performance.
Following up with All Ears Avow, I know we mention them a lot here at Spilt Milk but we just can’t get enough of their infectious songs! Starting off with well-loved ‘Wings on Butterflies’ bought in the crowd with it’s familiar and catchy sound, much like other popular songs like ‘I Can Help You To Bend’ which involves the memorable egg shaker! Mixing old and new songs, what a great gig to start off their tour and set up high spirits for the headline act.
This is the first time hearing Courage My Love and it’s clear this emo rock 3 piece, female fronted band are onto a good thing! Mixing upbeat songs with melodic vocals got everyone moving, their onstage chemistry radiated into the crowd leaving their fans wanting more. It’s sure to say this Canadian band are going on to big things, we hope to see more of them in the UK!
For fans of: All Time Low and Paramore
Overall a really great night, with highly talented artists and a range of music styles, be sure to check all of the bands out!
