It was about time the Canadian frat bros came back to our shores, ey? Seaway came back over to fill out Bristol’s exchange with angstry teens ready for a bit of finger pointing.
The night opened up with Lizzy Farrall, I hadn’t checked her out before so didn’t know what to expect and went in with an open mind. She played an acoustic set with 2 guitars and I wasn’t left overly impressed, as it felt a little out of place supporting an rambunctious pop-punk band. I did have a listen afterwards and enjoyed the overall sound, however it felt like she was on the bill due to a shared label.
Shortly afterwards Woes played through an energetic set, perhaps harnessing some of that energy that came with their signing to UNFD. It’s easy to see the influence their work with producer Seb Barlow has had on their overall sound, it certainly fits in with the current Neck Deep style of sound that there seems to be an abundance of.
Headliners of the night Seaway kicked off their first night of tour with blistering energy and everything you’d come to expect from a worldwide touring pop-band. The set featured songs from new album ‘Vacation’, but with plenty from ‘Colour Blind’. There were a few throwbacks in the form of ‘Shy Guys’ and hit ‘Sabrina The Teenage Bitch’.
The new songs went down a storm, with plenty of singable anthems for the crowd to get rowdy behind.
