Gig Reviews.

Review: Crossing The Limits, Hunger and Against The Current – Epic Studios, Norwich 09/03/2017.

Last Night Against The Current brought the second leg of the In Our Bones world tour to Norwich, with support from Austrian Alt Pop Rock trio Hunger and local support from Pop Punkers Crossing The Limits. The band are set to continue the tour across the UK and then head on tour with State Champs across the US and with a set like this it’s a tour not to miss.

Crossing The Limits is a new band of former lead singer of Call It Reckless,  who opened for Against The Current when they first came to Norwich and this new band certainly seems like it knows what it’s doing. Huge choruses and energetic riffs this band certainly have a lot of potential and they are worth keeping an eye on if this gig is anything to go by and you can do that on Facebook here.

Hunger the official support sort of sound like a blend of Chvrches and Eliza And The Bear, the band bringing huge drum beats and vocals that can sometimes be light and sometimes powerful and it does work for this band incredibly well particularly on tracks such as Amused. A band who created a great connection with the audience too, they do a good job of playing live and certainly make for a good warm up act.

Against The Current however are band becoming themselves and doing it with passion. Watching them feels incredibly authentic and it feels like you are watching a band who are projecting who they are through what they create, In Our Bones is an apt name for a debut album from this band because I get the impression it is. Costanza’s confidence has never been greater as she controls the stage, even with tracks as different as One More Weekend and In Our Bones. The band who back her up are amazing and really do sound as good live as recorded, this band live right now are just unmissable.

A great show made up of three great bands, Hunger and Against The Current continue to deliver and are worth seeing live.  Costanza I would say should be on Broadway with songs like Brighter and Chasing Ghosts (if Phantom Of The Opera went Punk!)  but she’s just too damn good at leading a Rock band I don’t want that to happen just yet and tonight proved that for me. I say it again now three years later, Go see them, Just go. Now.

8/10.
