Everything Everything The 12th April saw Everything Everything make their long awaited return to Birmingham after their previous date was postponed due to snow and safety concerns for the audience.

Foals FANTASTIC FOALS! Yannis Philippakis & his Foals are flying right now. The radio & media cannot get enough of their new album, ‘What Went Down’. After winning the NME ‘Best Album 2016’ & “smashing” Wembley a few nights before, I was on the edge of my seat in anticipation for a storming show. I was not let down! It was to be an exhibition of their versatility as they stride closer to confirmation as one of the UK’s best ever bands.

Everything Everything Formed in late 2007, the alt-pop-rock band ‘Everything Everything’ (EE) have released three albums to date: ‘Man Alive’, 2010, ‘Arc’ in 2013 and ‘Get to Heaven’ in the summer of this year; which, lyrically speaking, Higgs refers to as a “horror bible”. The dark and often formidably violent lyrics “I’m going to kill a stranger, so don’t’ you be a stranger.” written by Higgs, contrast dramatically with the bright pop-like sound which, when performed lived is highly stylised and sensory in effect, intensified by the blaring lights and panels of colour that lit up The Leadmill, Sheffield on Monday night. The band consists of members Jonathan Higgs, lead singer, Jeremy Pritchard, bassist, drummer Michael Spearman, Alex Robertshaw, lead guitarist, and touring musician Pete Sené on keyboards.

Everything Everything There’s a rich history of singing like you’ve just trapped your genitals in a car door (stranger things can happen), from Frankie Valli back in the 50s through to the Bee Gees in the 70s, on to Jimi Somerville in the 80s and, latterly that nice Mr Martin from Coldplay (more of them later). On top of the clever art rock electro feel of the music lead singer Jonathan Higg’s soaring vocals made Everything Everything’s 2010’s debut album Man Alive stand out and he’s wisely stuck with this winning formula on the new one, Arc (a top 5 album now no less), albeit with a noticeable shift towards a more epic stadium feel here and there.
