LIVE: Blitz Kids – 20/01/14 – The Barfly, Camden

Blitz Kids are one of those bands that are on the up. Having played the second stage at Download, toured with the likes of Lower Than Atlantis and Mallory Knox, the band have just released their highly anticipated album ”The Good Youth”. It’s a great record. It’s classic Blitz Kids sound with a pop-punk edge. Tonight I had the opportunity to see them play a sold-out Camden Barfly. This was the first time I’d caught the band live and they were amazing!

As this was an album launch gig, we were treated to the playback of the album in FULL and a couple of tracks from their earlier EP.

The album was played perfectly. Their incredibly catchy singles ‘Run For Cover’, ‘Sometimes’ and ‘On My Own’ had the Barfly jumping up and down. The tracks were performed note and pitch perfect. The highlight of the night came with ‘Perfect’ and ‘Title Fight’.
The band closed the set with ‘Warrior’ and ‘Never Die’.

Overall, a thoroughly enjoyable set. The band were spot on throughout and delivered a raw energetic performance.
