LIVE! – Fyfe Dangerfield

ARTIST: Fyfe Dangerfield
SUPPORT: The Boy Who Trapped The Sun
VENUE, TOWN: Brudenell Social Club, Leeds
DATE: 27th September 2010

FIVE WORD REVIEW: A charming, energetic, compelling evening.

MAIN REVIEW: Within two songs The Boy Who Trapped The Sun has the audience gripped. With the majority of the crowd sat on the floor taking in his wonderfully melancholy brand of folk, it seems this was the sort of act the Brudenell Social Club was made for. With a tiny stage and bays of seats on different levels, this ex-working men’s club has character you rarely find in a venue. The close proximity of audience and artist, gives the feeling that The Boy Who Trapped The Sun has secrets to share, and the crowd are eager to hear them. Accompanied by haunting cello, and beyond complimentary female backing vocals, closing track ‘Home’ is the most enchanting of these secrets, leaving his listeners intrigued and delighted.
Slightly later than expected Fyfe Dangerfield takes to the stage, opening with Faster Than The Setting Sun, and despite braking a guitar string (he switches seamlessly to piano) the strength of his voice means any punctuality issues are quickly forgotten. He is joined on stage intermittently by a band comprised of astonishingly attractive, well dressed, none sexually threatening individuals, who maintain an incredible energy throughout the one hour set; and allow Fyfe to demonstrate his talent both as a solo artist and a front man. As well as playing the entire of his first solo album Fly Yellow Moon Mr Dangerfield treats the audience to acoustic reworkings of some of the Guillemots best loved songs, along with the promise they’d be back with a new album next year.
The set closes with a full band rendition of Faster Than The Setting Sun and everyone goes home with a huge smile on their face.
It’d be difficult to go home frowning after spending the evening in such a charismatic venue, after such a charming support act and a headliner who clearly believes in the joy of playing to live audiences.
