SORRY (Domino Records), Face Bar, Reading - 16th February 2020

Considering Storm Dennis was ravaging the area for the whole weekend, I as pleasantly surprised at the amount of people who turned up on a Sunday evening for this intimate gig. Support band Roves were OK - a bit on the slow side, but they were only warming up for the main act after all. Sorry hit the stage on-time with some ominous wonky sample (which was pretty much the way things were before every song - with a similarly distorted version of 'Wonderful World' in there somewhere). I would have perhaps preferred more audience interaction between songs - letting the samples introduce the next track - but I guess that is the sort of band Sorry are. They started off strong with their recent single 'Around the Clock' getting the crowd going - but then the set began to sag. The Sorry sound is easily discernable: de-tuned guitars and dischordent clashes - with strange synth/samples in the background - and soft female vocals with spoken backing vocals, but the next 3 or 4 songs were not as strong as the singles I knew. Then the bass player picked up a sax and this is where the dynamics began to shift, and the audience interest picked up, as the second half of the set got much stronger. Apart from the excellent 'More' - there was another softer, slower track I really loved which reminded me of a female-led Cribs song. I really need to track that one down! In summary: a well-attended, good value gig - and a great opportunity to see and up-and-coming indie band in my back yard. Looking at the band members as they came off-stage, they seemed very young (compared to me!) - so I am sure there is a lot more to come as they mature musically.

Sorry are incredible. My new favourite band. As soon as they get within fifty miles of me I’m going to see them again.
