Bringing the country into the city for folk duo India Electric Company's new project

Have your say

Walking into the sold-out show at the Wedgewood Rooms, you can feel the warmth of the crowd.

Support act Itch keep the crowd interested with Streets-like bass-laden hip-hop, but the punters know who they’re here to see.

Opening with Stunner, the first track from their latest album, it’s clear Dan and Scroobius have the crowd’s full attention. Acerbic lyrics and danceable electronic beats get everyone moving and singing from the front to the back of the packed venue.

Mixing hip-hop, drum ’n’ bass, spoken word and dubstep, this show has something for everyone but especially those who like a little intelligence in their music.

Both support acts make an appearance during the set, adding variety to the performance and everyone is dancing when fan favourite Get Better drops.

The crowd keep moving as the set closes with A Letter From God To Man, a witty what-if, set to a thoroughly satisfying clash of electro, d’n’b and The Prodigy.

Get Better? It doesn’t get much better than this.
