After finding out that The October Game was playing at this year’s Great Escape meant one thing – don’t miss it!
Discovering the quality of their sound through a friend a few months back and really liking their truly amazing so far released albums, I’ve become a great supporter of this alt rock band based now in Hertfordshire.
They kicked off their 7-track set at The Latest Music Bar with their recent sound cracking hit Answers and Keys. I stood in front as I wanted to experience the full effect of their music and I as I expected, they sounded just too good! Seeing these pretty relaxed guys taking over the stage and blow the audience away with their sound made me so glad I came to support them.
Luke’s vocal was spot on and powerful, and the guitars were striking. Nick, playing the viola and keys was putting a special vibe and energy to the whole performance. Playing some new tracks including their latest one Rise and Fall, a song packed with outstanding vocal and guitar riffs, or a couple of songs from their previous albums – Gatherers Hands and Concrete, it was such an exciting and unique experience musically.
These guys totally deserved the packed room ovations they were getting through the whole set and with the new songs sounding exceptional, with no doubt, The October Game is here to stay and keep rocking.
On top of it all, they are one of the nicest guys I came across! Worth the support.
