Army Of Bones, Rory Indiana & Muncle Live At The Borderline, London

Army of Bones on stage at The Borderline London 17th May 2016

Army of Bones are working on their debut EP, due for release later this year, but that didn’t stop them from embarking on a short UK tour, which finished up in London’s Borderline.

Muncle [7] is a band, only it’s made up of just one person, Mike Griffiths. Whilst Mike plays guitar and provides vocals, the other Mikes play the drums and bass respectively, projected on to a screen beside him. A gimmick perhaps, but one that receives a warm response, and even plenty of laughs as the band members start to chat amongst themselves. Add to this a clever set filled with multi-instrumental talent, and the small crowd in attendance are clearly impressed.

Next up are Rory Indiana [8] who prove to be a force of nature. Whilst the band seem unable to stay still for any real period of time, this energetic performance of catchy songs prove to be a very fun combination. The real draw of Rory Indiana however is frontman Rory Kaye’s distinct vocals, leading to a sound which sets them well apart from the crowd.

Headliners Army of Bones [8] come with their own light show and smoke machines, a set up clearly designed to make their set as atmospheric as possible. Everything in the appearance is clearly well thought out, right down to the stage dress, to achieve the most impressive look possible.

It’s not just the appearance that’s atmospheric however, and the setting lends itself perfectly to their music, echoing the anthemic sound that they produce. The varied set is well practiced and effective, leading you to a different place as the music washes over you.
