I have seen Crooked Weather before as a band but this was the first time I had seen them operating as a duo – and very good they were too. I thought they were even better than the band. The drums and base did not mask their engaging personalities.
I thought they looked a little vulnerable on stage, as if they were exposed, but that was a good thing. It enhanced the performance and gave it an edge.
Holly’s fine voice created a lilting melody that was very beautiful. She also provided a steady base with her guitar strumming for Will to ornament with his electric guitar, picking the notes to provide a balancing strength that was refreshing. Somehow they managed to create music that was both melodic but had a strength and Indie edge. The resulting performance was both strong and lyrical.
A powerful set.
