This gig review has been a long time coming, but here we are at last! In November of last year I set off with two of my very favourite people to see this show at Talking Heads in Southampton.
However they were a great band to watch; enthusiastic and energetic, and whilst their brand of electronic music may have had little to distinguish them from many other bands of the same style and genre it was sharp, harsh and definitely club friendly. I have heard good things about their album Vanity and would be tempted to give it a listen to see if their admittedly impressive vocals and lyrics grow on me at this later date.
Uberbyte have become a big name in the UK and it's easy to see why. The all-too-popular hints of dance are there from time to time but this gets the audience moving; this band also draw influence from hardstyle and gabba, creating a bouncier, tongue-in-cheek style with their irreverent lyrics. A bit like Combichrist with a sense of humour. They do a great line in hilarious club anthems, from 'Hardcore Industrial' to set finale 'Money Shot'.
