A review of Everything Everything’s performance at the Cockpit in Leeds, for There Goes The Fear.
It was a cold Sunday evening in Leeds and it was gradually getting darker. Not an ideal environment by anyone’s standards. But rescue was just around the corner at the Cockpit. Not the most interesting looking venue from outside, but it’s what’s inside that counts.
Inside were 400 music fans of all ages with eyes transfixed on the stage waiting for Manchester’s hottest property, Everything Everything. Before the poptastic quartet came on stage though came London’s Clock Opera.
Clock Opera have recently released a remix of the headliner’s ‘MY KZ UR BF’, but tonight wasn’t about remixes – it was about the band. Despite the crowd never really getting moving, Clock Opera still put on a great show. Some of the music they could produce was excellent, even utilising utensils such as a tea pot and mug as percussion instruments. Not exactly whipping the crowd into a frenzy but warming them up nonetheless, Clock Opera looked happy with their performance and the reception they received from the Leeds music community.
