An absolutely awe-inspiring bunch of bands performed tonight at Jumpin’ Jacks in Newcastle.
Newcastle’s Scalesia opened the night successfully, with the renowned band excellently adhering to their fans’ expectations. The local four-piece displayed passion throughout their set, with their incredible stage presence and exhilarating music truly setting a high standard for the rest of the night.
Next up were local three-piece, Blesh. The band concocts sounds that are both chilled and incredibly easy on the ears, while also stirring up an incredible element of passion. This excitement was clearly evident throughout their set tonight, with the band knowing exactly how to produce an animated atmosphere in the intimate venue.
The crowd was well and truly alive, especially during fan-favourites, ‘Fell For It’ and ‘Swings And Roundabouts’, which both perfectly broadcasted the bands’ seamless talent. Blesh’s sound is unique. They combine modern grunge and pop with indie rock – something they do incredibly efficiently, and it’s obvious that the audience agreed. With the band recently releasing single ‘Takeaway?’ on May 26th, there’s definitely an exciting future ahead of them.
Rounding off the night perfectly was Teesside four-piece, Llovers. A band that I’ve seen a number of times, including their first gig at Think Tank? back in November, I’ve watched them develop into the outstanding band they are today.Without a shadow of a doubt,
Without a shadow of a doubt, Llovers are a band that the North East music scene needs: they’re exciting and original and a band that’s simply oozing with professionalism and overwhelming talent.With almost 183,000 plays on Spotify, the bands’ first single, ‘Borderlands’, really shows the pure excellence of their indie-pop music. They certainly proved this excellence at Jumpin’ Jacks, even debuting their newest song ‘I Don’t Mind’, which did nothing but please their already-captivated crowd.
