Today I’m going to tell you about two bands I saw for the first time at Oxjam last Wednesday and remind you about another one.
The Winter Tradition are a four-piece folk group who were great live. They had to compete with a half-full room of people talking over the music, which was annoying but it’s bound to happen in somewhere like the Circus (the layout sort of facilitates it).
That track above is free to download here, by the way. So yeah; soft folk vibes interlaced with rougher-hewn vocals that are closer to Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly than the pop-folk of Mumford et al.
Waverly were loud and rather pleased about it. Modern rock without the guitar solos; howling vocals and awesome tracks; it’s just massive pity that when you Google ‘waverly’ you get a Disney Channel program starring Selena Gomez, train times and a bunch of other random bands called Waverly-something that aren’t anything like Waverly. So sorry about that.
