Noah and the Whale play iTunes festival
Noah and the Whale gave a sensational performance at London's Roundhouse last night (24.07.11).
The band were playing as part of the month long iTunes festival at the North London venue, and performed a set which drew heavily from their latest album, 'Last Night on Earth', which has seen them embrace a bigger sound more suited to the larger venue.
Introducing recent single 'Tonight's the Kind Of Night ' frontman Charlie Fink asked the audience: "How you guys all doing tonight? I want everyone here to punch in the air during the chorus - it will be beautiful moment!"
Charlie has previously talked about how the album marks a shift in his song writing and a different approach to how he put songs together.
He said: "It was quite a transformative couple of years for me and I was looking to make a fresh start after the second album.
"It was a leap for me in terms of songwriting and it's the first time writing characters, third-person narratives. Also a large theme of the album is change and people making a change in their life."
Also during the set the group performed tracks including 'Blue Skies', 'L.I.F.E.G.O.E.S.O.N.', ' 5 Years Time', 'Wild Thing' and 'Life is Life'.
Support act Fixers warmed up the crowd with a selection of songs including 'Crystals'.
The iTunes festival runs throughout July and future shows include Kasabian, James Morrison and Moby.
Tickets are free and distributed via the iTunes Festival website.Posted on 25 Jul 2011 16:15 to category : Band / Celebrity News
