PHOTOS + REVIEW: BLOSSOMS, CABBAGE + RORY WYNNE @ O2 ACADEMY, GLASGOW

Blossoms bring the NME tour to a close in Glasgow.

Opening tonight is Stockport newcomer Rory Wynne. His powerful voice echoing through silhouettes as each rock track confesses another vigorous background.

A pernicious swagger attracts a flourishing audience, keeping them captive to the artist in front.

Place all bets now, because Rory Wynne will see us trough 2017.

Next up, a band notorious for reckless sets and a veggie-friendly name. Their tracks already lurking on the tongues of an eager audience before setting desirably on stage with Cabbage themselves.

A performance lined with eccentric acting and guitar driven instrumentation, another electric show for the list. Tracks like Necroflat in the Palace proving a favourite for Glasgow; Mossley’s five piece were anything but tame. With a set list so full of energy, it’s tough to even think of the word tired.

After singing synchronously to tracks by Oasis and The Courteneers, Glasgow screamed for Blossoms – and sure enough, they arrived.

A band that have had their live set intact for years, meticulously in sync with each other and impressive to say the least.

Opening with At Most A Kiss, every footprint became unknown to its leaping foot above – a strong start. Each tune has been closely revised by the dedicated fan base and they can only take part by screeching at the top of their lungs, to which no one disobeys.

There’s no question why Blossoms are an instinctive sell out; the five piece can’t and wouldn’t disappoint even if they tried. As one of 2016’s most promising finds, they certainly have set the bar high.
