Despite a stellar start to their career, Cold War Kids have strangely slipped off the radar in the UK and performances like this make that all the more mystifying. The band electrified the crowd with a full-blooded, engaging and captivating set, showcasing their unique brand of punchy, stark indie to great effect. The five-piece remained in a state of backlit semi-darkness on stage throughout, somewhat aptly hiding themselves in plain sight to let their music do the talking. They may never be destined to emerge into the light of the mainstream, but those observing through the shadows here were justly rewarded.
