REVIEW: Andrew WK at The Wedgewood Rooms, Southsea

Have your say

The Wedge is often home to a collection of those with long hair, baggy shirts and skinny jeans - this was certainly no different when indie-rock band Little Comets were in town.

Having played Portsmouth just 18 months ago, the Newcastle rockers didn’t disappoint with their display of catchy riffs and tight vocals.

The crowd, a flood of adolescents, went home thrilled after the band exceeded expectations by playing remarkably and consistently, carrying their unique sound throughout.

Though the Geordie boys weren’t overly interactive with the crowd, they connected instead through their cleverly written lyrics.

Now six years old, the four-piece performed tracks such as ‘Worry’, ‘Bridge Burn’, and ‘Isles’ down-to-a-tee and evoked a range of emotions from excitement through to intimacy.

As well as playing hits from their previous two albums, Little Comets sampled their new album which frontman, Robert Coles, admits that the majority of was written in the privacy of a bedroom.

Catfish and the Bottlemen were joined by Bwani Junction as support acts. Both rock bands made it hard for Little Comets to follow after offering entertaining sets.

Robert Coles commented: ‘I thought it went well, we love playing here and I’m hoping to have a look around the city.’
