RUBELLA MOON + KINDS OF LIGHT + JAMES HARRIMAN + HIGHLITE
Third up were the lads of Rubella Moon. Adorning their staple shirt and tie combo, they continued the never disappointing pop punk and indie rock vibe with performances of their own tracks ‘Losing Touch’ and ‘Weight’. Evoking nodding heads and tapping feet, ‘watch your merry step’ became quite literal as this Bewdley bunch whipped up a set full of admirable vocals and an impressive sound, which, despite the rising temperature of the room, still urged those listening to dance around to the pop-rock tracks.
Possibly rocking a bit too hard halfway through their set, it came to his band mate’s attention that lead guitarist James Burford snapped a guitar string. But despite this instrumental mishap, it didn’t phase him or the rest of the band as they completed a set to be proud of.
