LIVE REVIEW All We Are @ Leaf Cafe Hailing from different parts of the world, Brazil, Norway and Ireland, Liverpool has been the place that has brought trio, All We Are, together. Their variety of nationalities seem to blend into a parcel of comforting familiarity, with mesmerising synths and atmospheric bass, whilst remaining intriguing with elements of alternative folk and psych pop. Easy to listen to and not demanding too much from the audience, Red Sky put the crowd at ease and the set seemed to fly by. With hypnotic tracks such as Satellite and Trainspotting lulling the audience into an almost dreamlike state, there were elements within these which demonstrated the somewhat desolate and raw aspect of their music. Trainspotting in particular, as a result of the effortless harmonies holding the track together, was eerie and almost ghostly. The band seemed comfortable and relaxed when playing, if slightly quiet between tracks, perhaps due to their fairly new formation. However, this failed to take anything away from the upbeat, lively performance – clearly enjoyed by both the audience and the band. Sundowner and the marching track Cardhouse - our favourite of the night- kept the momentum going and the latter showcased impressive drum beats, epic bass playing and cascading ‘oohs’; a real insight into just what this band is capable of. Make sure you check out Harvest Sun on Facebook and keep up to date with all their live music.
