The Xcerts ended their headline tour at Scala in London playing to a room so packed you could barely move. The band opened with their latest single Day Dream, with an electrifying presence, before moving onto some old favourites I Don’t Care and Live Like This. The crowd erupted during the chorus of Crisis In The Slow Lane ‘We all say, we are tired of feeling low. We are tired of being alone, destroy a head but not your own’
Part of the set that really stood out was Murray’s beautiful and truly mesmerizing acoustic version of Pop Song.
Throughout the set frontman Murray spoke about the important topic of sexism in the music industry and proceeded to make sure the audience knew who they could talk to if they experience any harassment during the gig because ‘the live music community is for everyone.’
During There Is Only You the atmosphere of the room was beautiful, the same for Aberdeen 1987, the entire room in unison singing every word with indescribable passion and emotion, especially during the chorus ‘I’m your new best friend Yeah I’m your new haircut Yeah I’m the alcohol that burns down your neck and into your gut And I was cold outside and your screams are loud, I’m trying to wrap up, I find it hard as I stumble to the ground’
The set ended with the first single off the upcoming new album, which I am eagerly waiting for, Feels Like Falling In Love.
Hold Onto Your Heart is The Xcerts upcoming album out in January next year, hopefully bringing a new tour with it because that show was brilliant!
