Kaelan Mikla entertaining at Electrowerkz
One of my favourite albums of 2018 was Manadans by Kaelan Mikla so I was delighted to find they were appearing in London, tickets were rapidly bought. I was not to be dissapointed as they performed a wonderful set of their post punk dark wave sound, they are very distinctive with heavy base and dark synth sounds. They started off at 9:30 and engulfed the venue with a fabulous set that lasted for 50 minutes, the crowd was very appreciative. Was that it? Of course not and after a very short break they returned for two more songs giving an hours worth of magical sounds, it was all superb.
Support was Some Ember who was from California, I think Oakland but did not really catch what was being said, who is a post punk/pop new wave hybrid band, most of the audience missed him by arriving late. He was interesting.
