We may or may not have mentioned just how great the underground indie scene is in Swindon at the moment. You may not believe it, but it is true – trust us. We headed to local club venue Level 3 where Yves and Misfires were supporting Lancaster hailing – Lake Komo.
If you read Spilt Milk on the reg, then you should know how good Misfires are, and they are on the up. The small venue filled up quickly for these boys opening set where they showcased their high-energy sound, blending a few old favourites with some new material too. A sing along surged during ‘22’, which is a track that put Misfires on the map! Its sunny indie feel got the room bouncing and crowd were singing and moving along through their set and it definitely set the atmosphere. ‘Coming Home’, Misfires newest single, ended the set with power and no doubt left an impression on the crowd. Check out Misfires if you haven’t already!
Next up were Yves, and to put it simply, we were really looking forward to see their set. After narrowly missing them opening the Truck festival main stage due to the manic traffic going into the site, we were itching to finally see these guys play live. And they delivered!! Their sound live is a perfect match to how they sound recorded. With carefully constructed tracks that are very well put together and incredible energy, you can feel their passion. Their tracks are exciting, layering an infectious beat with a commanding bass line and fast paced indie pop guitar that captivates the audience. Unfortunately the crowd here was a little bit lacking, but the ones who were watching Yves certainly were engaged and hooked on their sound. Overall we thought they were fantastic! And what’s better is that they will be supporting Public access TV in London very soon, so keep an eye out to catch Yves in the future!
