Last night White and Baby Strange kicked off their tour, on the stage of Newcastle’s The Cluny. Support came from Hartlepool rising stars – Para Alta.
Para Alta played an impressive set, testing new songs and impressing the crowd who’d turned up to catch the boys opening set.
White were next up, the Scottish five piece giving off a stage confidence like a band who know exactly what they’re about. They played songs “Living Fiction” and “Fight the Feeling” two tracks familiar with White’s fans.
They also blended in a mix of newer, unreleased music, which saw lead singer Leo Condie take up two microphones to create vocal effects unlike anything most will of heard before.
Sadly their set had to come to an end and they closed their set with the massive “Future Pleasures” which live, evolved into a 90’s dance album. A modern day version of Underworld’s “Born Slippy”.
It was then time for Baby Strange to grace the stage, the trio looking happy to be returning to Newcastle (where they have a very loyal following).
They played tracks such as “VVV” and “Pure Evil” which the crowd received very well. They played a cover of “Young Folks” by Peter Bjorn and John and mixed in a few new tracks from their forthcoming debut album.
Of course the band weren’t going to leave out their incredible single “Pleasure City” which helped to bring their set to an almighty close.
Para Alta, White and Baby Strange put on a fantastic show and if you’re lucky enough to be catching White and Baby Strange of their tour then you won’t be disappointed.
