ADVERTISMENT

Undertone, Cardiff's little basement venue is the destination for tonight as post-hardcorers Canvas promote their recently released album Worry.

Due to work and the delay to all the trains (thanks football and Arriva Trains Wales...), I arrive at the venue almost at the end of local and opening band Defeatist. What I did catch though really impressed me with tight vocals and great guitar work. they are a promising band for sure!

As soon as Defeatist finish, the room almost empties as people head upstairs to check on the latest score in the football that was being played just up the road (I mean it was Wales' last chance to qualify for the World Cup so you know, priorities!) but they were all back in time for Wilderness to start. Admittedly (and at first ashamedly) I'd never heard of the band but then this was their first show so I didn't feel as bad (or out of touch with the local scene). They are an impressive bunch though! Sounding tight and well-rehearsed for such an 'inexperienced' band.
