Lille to Leeds event review

lilleeds

This was rather a big deal for our friends Revival Synth being rather big fans of Shiny Darkness so they were considerably involved in the promotion side for this event. They must feel incredibly proud after the success that resulted from all the efforts. What a super sized crowd was there that night. And what atmosphere!

Berlyn Trilogy kicked off the night with a great set of songs and really got the audience pumped and excited with a great selection of their classic songs (and despite a slight tech issue which causing the bass sounds to be too loud in the mix). Simon seeming to be really coming into his own as the front man with some cool moves on stage  and some great interaction with the audience. He seems so much more relaxed in the role than when we first saw him take over the job. Their cover of Atomic is really quite something to behold (and you can still download it for free from our label’s compilation of covers from Halloween last year) and Tokyo Rooftops always ignites the place live – though an extended version would be nice! Admittedly we’re a little disappointed to not hear anything new from them in this new era. Hopefully soon… it will be interesting to find what voice the band find without Dorian.

Pulse were up next, the combination of Howard Moth from Spacebuoy (RIP) fame and Sebastien Deruwez normally the singer of Shiny Darkness.

 

Pulse combine a certain indie rock sensibility with dancepop. Howard still largely taking up a vocal role but now also playing guitar and in case you’re worried it restricts that fabulous performer we know and love, don’t worry it doesn’t! Howard is still the engaging front man he always has beeen. While Sebastien tends to take the more keyboards at the back role, he does take the front man role on some songs and if you know Shiny Darkness, you’ll know he’s another great front man. Pumping beats and rocking guitar everyone was on their feet dancing in this set.

 

Eurasianeyes were up next and kicked off with their stormer Far Off Land that we all know so well. It’s a song with such perfect melody and structure you really could easily have believed it an Ultravox classic.

The audience were loving them. They are really proving their worth these days, progressing from when they played at their second gig at our 4th event in april 2014 and utterly deserving of this second to last place. Their songs are everything you could want, so full of emotion and catchy riffs. There must surely be even bigger things ahead for this band clearly beloved by this Leeds audience.

Shiny Darkness – The one everyone was waiting for and after we saw them at the Little Theatre in Doncaster last year there’s no wonder. It’s clear why they have their audience – handsome, professional and true entertainers. Such an honour to have them back in Yorkshire after such a short time. It’s not surprising they’ve recently been snatched up by a nice label. But really all we need to do is let their music/performance to the talking.


All in all well done to all the bands for a fabulous night and DJ Dave Charles for fabulous tunage and being a brilliant compere for the evening. But most of all Mr Andy Jordan of Revival Synth for helping with all the fabulous promotion and securing of a sponsor for the evening. His dedication and hard work for all these months leading up to the event has been second to none and it’s just so pleasing that there was such a brilliant size audience for the event. Synth is being revived in Yorkshire and let’s see where we can go from here… plans are afoot for RS/DEF to work together on a festival. Synth Yorkshire coming soon? Watch this space…
