Brother & Bones as the Princess Pavilion: The Soundcheck Review

Returning to Cornwall as part of their international Omaha Tour, Brother & Bones played a hit-packed set to a jam-packed Princess Pavilion on Friday.

From early set opener (and latest single) Omaha to the closing chords of Back to Shore, the crowd were bouncing and singing back every word to the band’s sweeping choruses.

Before the band took to the stage, the expectant crowd were treated to two support acts, The Interceptors and Auction for the Promise Club. Both acts bought different sounds and atmospheres, but both proved more than good enough to get the crowd going. Auction for the Promise Club in particular proved no strangers to the Cornish crowd, having played locally on numerous occasions in the past.

Brother & Bones have played the Princess Pavilion once before, a night which resulted in the bands first live EP being released. Since then the band have been in America recording their (long awaited!) debut album, of which we were treated to several cuts live on stage. A particularly impressive version of To Be Alive had the entire audience screaming the chorus back at singer Rich Thomas, who was visibly enthralled by the home crowd.

Every time this band play in Cornwall it seems like they’re getting closer and closer to big things, it won’t be long before you’re hearing these infectious melodies and heart-pounding chords playing on the radio everywhere.
