From first hearing Bloxx on Spotify the band continues to impress. With over 100,000 monthly listeners and joining Sundara Karma & INHEAVEN they have already had an incredible year! Bloxx are relatively new to the scene and they are here to stay. 

 

The band from North London made up of Ophelia (Guitar/Vocals), Taz (Guitar), Paul (Bass) and Moz (Drums) were first to hit the stage at Scala and the turn out was strong, and they were definitely enjoying it. Their set was full of groovy indie tunes that had the crowd boogieing through the whole set. They have found the perfect combination of amazing riffs and hard hitting grunge which make you listen to them on repeat all day long.

The energy they brought to the stage won over the crowd instantly, creating a perfect atmosphere for the rest of the night. Bloxx are definitely ones to watch out for, and I’m very excited to see what the rest of 2017 brings.

Next up were another four piece band from London, and they set the stage on fire with their hard hitting set. Having only briefly heard of King Nun before, I didn’t know what to expect, but I was definitely in for a treat. Theo (Vocals/Guitar), James (Guitar), Nathan (Bass) and Caius (Drums) took to the stage and it was safe to stay not many of the crowd have heard of them, but that did not stop them from enjoying the music.

The whole set was incredible start to finish. From the get go you were able to feel the energy. They had a great stage presence and they looked totally at home. It was refreshing to hear new music and to hear it live for the first time even better. King Nun’s sound has found their sound early on and will hopefully carry on to grow and develop as a band. Hung Around is one I still have on repeat from the gig earlier this month!

 

Their punchy sound will be taking them far, and will look forward to them hopefully making appearances at festivals next summer.

It was time for the nights headliner, INHEAVEN. As the lights dimmed the sold old Scala crowd screams started and didn't stop until the end of their set. The band had there iconic red roses around their equipment and with Chloe wearing the infamous pinstriped suit. The wait was over, and the passionate filled, grungy powerhouse that we call INHEAVEN took to the stage. 

 

The four piece band from south London began their set with Bitter Town which is filled with heavy beats, grungy bass and guitar riffs. I’ve heard so much from people who have been to INHEAVEN gigs, and now I understand.  With such a strong fan base it created such an amazing atmosphere. The crowd were lost in the music reciting every word the entire set!

World On Fire and Treats were the highlight tracks of the night for me, everyone thoroughly enjoying them from the people head bopping towards the back right through to everyone moshing in the pit at the front.  Their tour has been a massive success across the UK. With the recent release of their debut self titled album they have seen a great response, but are still somewhat undiscovered with only 45,000 monthly listeners on Spotify. So many people are missing out on this group. Which kind of makes it that much better?! They finished their set on there debut single Regeneration which they released back in 2015, which was the perfect end to incredible evening of music.

 

Really looking forward to see what is next for the group as the grow. Until their next release I will have Baby Alright on repeat all day long!
