Mostly Autumn at Islington Academy, London - live review
Venue: Islington Academy, London
Mostly Autumn stylishly debut Sight Of Day live in London
With a chill in the air and drizzle hanging over the city, summer is definitely heading for the exit tonight as Mostly Autumn return to London for a mammoth two-part, three-hour show. The opening set sees the band play their latest album, Sight Of Day, in full.
“It’s the first time we’ve had a go at that!” announces guitarist Bryan Josh after they successfully navigate the epic title track, and there’s a sense that several of these new songs have yet to become muscle memory. In some cases that lends the proceedings a certain frisson as the musicians are at their most focused, but it does mean that some tracks sound a little stiff and self-conscious.
