Review by Zach Fox
Hoxton Square, London
Hoxton Square, Zigfrid Von Underbelly and down a candle lit stairwell is a very intimate venue. Candles, mood lighting, interesting furniture and occasionally you’ll find Felix Fables charming audiences with their unique blend of folkesque rock. Playing first they set a high bar for the rest of the evening and even with the talented Georgia Mason missing from the line up they still didn’t disappoint.
Their set seemed like the soundtrack to my whole year and with an EP in the near future this seems likely to be the case. I felt inspired listening to “Acorn“, with a very different rendition of “Thought You Were The One” (brilliantly done I may add) and “Blues Song” which brought the classic 12 bar up-to date with fiery melodies and rocking rhythm, forced people to tap their feet, sing along and make their way to the dance floor.
