The New Wine - Scala, 16 April, 2009

May 21st, 2009

I should have expected these guys to be good after the lead singer of The Whitest Boy Alive introduced them. Regardless, they started playing, and it was instantly clear that while they had there own style, they were quite similar to The Whitest Boy Alive’s sound. For such a young band, they played really well together, and are talented players, especially their keyboard player who wasn’t afraid to rock out the riffs (instead of the usual pad-playing keys man).

Their enthusiasm and music was strong enough that the audience were cheering and dancing, which is a response I haven’t seen much of from an opening act. Their demo was £3 well spent - I’m not sure if these guys are signed yet, but if they continue with their current form, it shouldnt be long before they are. They have a bright future ahead of them. If you get a chance, go see The New Wine and make up your mind for yourself!
