Everything Everything - Liverpool Music Week 4/11/17

After a week of incredible entertainment from veteran and new acts alike, music fans old and young braved the cold weather of Saturday evening and eagerly gathered at the Liverpool Music Week closing party. Playing at the Invisible Wind Factory were Everything Everything; a Manchester based four-piece bursting with dramatic rocky/electronic energy, who perform with an obvious love of their craft.

It’s fair to be sceptical of how this band may sound live, considering their staples of falsetto and electronic dance-meets-rock sound, but Everything Everything effortlessly pull this off, and pull their fans in. Opening with the lead track from their latest album, Everything Everything managed to captivate the packed crowd from the very first line of Night of the Long Knives. Frontman Jonathan Higgs’ vocals soar through the venue with incredible passion before the song drops into a frenzy of emotion to the sound of a groovy dance beat. Fan favourites including Blast Doors, Regret, Distant Past and Spring/Sun/Winter/Dread had the crowd erupt into fierce song and dance. No matter the diverse age range of the crowd, this band’s groovy hooks and electronic rocky sounds had everybody chanting the lyrics back, word for word, and trying to match Higg’s incredible falsetto tones. They closed the show beautifully and extravagantly with another critically acclaimed track, No Reptiles, and despite having played a long and exceedingly great set, I was still left wanting more. It’s that kind of energy that keeps their loyal fans coming back for more.

Everything Everything are a band unafraid to experiment, and this has earned them loyal audiences like no other.
