All eyes are on Northlane as they make their return to the UK with new vocalist Marcus Bridge, but there’s no sign of hesitant nerves; they relish the attention.
The band jostle about the stage, comfortable with one another and the new shape of the band after only seven months together, quickly getting the audience up to speed. Songs new and old bounce with a youthful desire to explore and the band, in playful spirits, allow every turn to shine.
Harmony circles deliberate refrain before it all gets too much and Northlane strike with deadly precision. There’s a hint of sludge about new single ‘Obelisk’ but under the dynamic watch of Marcus, the melodic swipes take flight.
