The acoustic powers of Ross Mitchell created a mellow and cheerful vibe throughout the crowd. His cover of The 1975’s Sex in particular, got people involved as well as his others such as Paper Planes that followed a more upbeat pattern, or as he described it as, ‘fancy’.
On a different level, Model Aeroplanes lifted the room with their infectious indie tracks and lively stage presence. Especially with their well known singles Electricity, Innocent Love, Crazy, and Club Low – the Glasgow crowd sang their hearts out.
You could tell this gig was going to be spectacular, whether it was from the amazing line up or just watching Little Comets take to the stage – you could say it was going to be a special one. Proven right, an instant skyscraper was created throughout the room with arms, phones and claps reaching up as the band began their set. When announcing that one of the songs was sad, fans screamed suggestions including My Boy William to which Rob replied “no that’s a happy one, well I’d hope so anyways!”. The constant enthusiasm from the audience bounced off the constant determination from the band to put on a good show. And so they did, in fact, ‘good’ doesn’t do it justice. The set list ran on with old songs from previous albums and new songs from their latest Hope Is A State Of Mind album. But no matter what was played, both fans and Little Comets gave it their all. Now, I know that Glasgow crowds hold a reputation for being absolute party animals, but there’s no doubt in my mind that the rest of tour will be just as crazy. With their dedicated, loving fanbase, Little Comets are definitely heading into an incredible limelight.
