Besnard Lakes live at the Islington Assembly Hall

08 Apr 2016

I discovered Montreal band The Besnard Lakes a few years via Racliffe and Maconies’ afternoon show on BBC Radio 6. Their music clicked with me instantly, and have become one of my favourite bands. This week I finally got a chance to see them live in London, and it was truly incredible. I felt awkward for them though, as the venue wasn’t exactly at capacity, but hopefully by the next time they tour more people will have come to discover their music.

The big advantage was that it was easy to get right down the front, and make the most of the iPhone camera to get the shot above. Second from left is Adam Franklin from local Oxford band Swervedriver – one of the many special guests that night, which also included a three-piece string section.

I’m planning a Troika on The Besnard Lakes soon, to serve as an introduction…
