Feature: Kids In Glass Houses, London, Koko, 29th October 2014

KIGH - Koko - 29th October-40Wednesday 29th October, Kokos Camden; a date and venue that for those privileged enough to have got a ticket to this sold out event, will never be forgotten.

It was here that Kids in Glass Houses performed their penultimate show, to a packed house of emotional and vocal fans. The atmosphere was that of a raucous party – with everyone set on having an unforgettable night whilst trying hard to ignore the fact that this was probably the last time that they would witness these five great guys together on stage!

Kids in Glass Houses, despite struggling at times to remain composed in the face of such ardent support, performed a phenomenal set, doing what they do best – entertaining a crowd with great music! Aled Phillips vocals were superb throughout, and his talent clearly showcased in his solo acoustic delivery of Raise Hell – he possesses a voice that begs to be heard, whether belting out the anthemic choruses of Diamond Days, Lilli Rose and Saturday or the softer ballad Morning Afterlife.

The 19 song set, played with sheer talent and true passion from the band members, Aled, Iain, Joel, Philip and Shay included a four song encore which ended with Matters at All, a fitting and emotional end to an overwhelming night, yes, there were tears flowing not only from the band but from so many of their loyal fans and friends. This group of genuinely humble guys from South Wales (who I don’t think have ever really believed just how good they are) will be sorely missed; they have succeeded on leaving the British music scene on a high and deservedly so, but will leave a void that will be so very hard to fill!
