I BREAK HORSES (London Cargo, 05/12/11)
The main thing that strikes you about I Break Horses’ live show is how accomplished it all is. Tonight’s London performance is their third ever, but there’s a notable lack of amateurishness; the band are tight, the visuals are striking and the arrangements, although lacking in brevity, recreate the shoegaze-y atmospherics of the album well. Sure, the mix isn’t always favourable and there’s too much aimless filler, but when they hit their stride, you just know that in a few months time they're going to be something really special.
