Welsh pop punkers Save Your Breath drew a large and vocal crowd for their performance on the Atticus stage. Following the release of their album There Used To Be A Place For Us the band were in the mood to celebrate and that they did in style.
They succeeded in maintaining their raw-edged delivery whilst remaining musically faultless and with ease had the crowd eating out of their hand. Lessons was delivered with a rousing chorus, matched against the slower, near ballad of Skin & Bones . The more pop orientated Abandon had all singing along and the fast paced Find a Way was catchy and loud.
Whilst not the most innovative band to have graced the pop-punk music scene they have definitely done a good job and the release of their great album has provided a refreshing new sound and a slightly different direction for the band to go in, but one that certainly works live. The crowd left feeling more than satisfied, if not a little tired and hoarse from their energetic and enthusiastic participation.
