Always an eventful Thursday night of good music can be found under the umbrella of Gigonometry and this act were one who really caught us in the right way from the word go. The saturated flourishes in the sound come to the fore with first song “Naïve Green”. It enriches everything on show and is richly effective when the laid back styling is backed up between the plays of cool. From there they settle into another extremely likeable track with “Connexion”. Again there is an affirmation that comes across in the select touches. This in turn then puts the sentiment of the lyrics in their place and everything syncs up to feed off the connection.

“Blue Horrors” is another tune with an under-checked urgency about it. This is smooth again but builds the composure differently, and this indifferent transition is easy to admire. It sits high with the shoegazer apparel to it but this is imbued with more determination and confidence in how it is delivered. With “Briscoe” they trade upon a heightened nous in the sound. This lands squarely and becomes something derivative in its own right as everything is brought together. They also capture something with the momentum of “Cerise” that pushes out the sound. It is a leaner showing that the vocal delivery benefits from. How it comes together is a secured departure with a greater emphasis on the instrumental and this is where the bridge closes in on the meat of the song.

There is something specific to the announcement on the intro of “Well Wishers” that easily pulls you in. This is a catchy affair for a lot of reasons and the selective touch applied really gets going here. It is an open showing in the structures but everything that plays its way through here knows its place. An encore was called for and they duly obliged with a terrific cover of Tonetta’s “Drugs, Drugs, Drugs”. Here is a delivery with front. A segue created in the swirl of guitars gives the sound a passive calling and they also find a freedom in the expression that they weren’t calling upon in the rest of their set. Here they are comfortable with a track that signifies them as a band for the cool kids that everyone can get behind.
