So yeah, Walls were pretty shit hot at the Shacklewell Arms last night. The dark , dingy backroom, flooded with kaleidoscopic neons and packed with sweaty, pulsating bodies, was the perfect location for the set – an engulfing wall of drones, synths and effects, lifted by ethereal vocals and simple guitar chords and forced home with the swallowed thuds of deep house beats. If the quality of the set and the crowd’s subsequent reaction (especially from whom we can only presume was one of the duo’s mums, having the best night of her life right in front of the stage) is anything to go by, they should be set for something big; the next Caribou or Mount Kimbie, perhaps. And we wish them all the best for it.
