Glasgowbury 2011 - Colly Strings

Post categories:

ATL | 13:48 UK time, Sunday, 24 July 2011

G Sessions, 12.05pm

Describe in a Tweet: Small stage, massive sound.

What happened: And we're off! For a band only invented a short time ago, Colly Strings have a remarkable amount of familiar moments. 'Built to Break' shakes off a few onstage gremlins in time for 'Gold', a track that belongs in arenas.

Goldstar: By the time we hear 'To The Water', they've nailed it. It's rebuilt today, chunkier than ever and a little bit skewed compared to what's on the CD. And they don't need to tell us anymore - our hands are already in the air.

Lost at Sea: If we're forced to be critical, we could point to little glimpses of inexperience as this band grow into their enormous songs.

Rating: 8/10
