The queue that started well before lunch was even being served in most pubs are all here for the five youths that come together to form We Are The In Crowd. Only recently coming off tour from supporting their friends in All Time Low the band have done well to sell out their first ever headlining tour.
We Are The In Crowd are supported by Boston bunch - Super Prime, who infuse everything that a typical pop punk band should, the cover of Fall Out Boy - 'Sugar We’re Going Down' is a massive hit with the crowd tonight and prepares this band to be the next big thing! They’re the sugar that makes the kids tonight bounce off the walls.
Also on support duties are The Summer Set who master a unique sound that makes the band near to impossible to compare with any other. They start with an intense introduction to 'Punch Drunk Love' with the energy of cute, excited puppies but they have this addictive, happy-go lucky charm to them that all music stations across the pond require. Brian promises 'everything is just fine' as they burst into 'Someone Like You' but watching The Summer Set it’s clear that they are more than your average radio pop band and they put every drop of sweat into their performance tonight.
We Are The In Crowd light up the stage like a match as they open up with 'Rumour Mill', a definite crowd pleaser and one of the band's stand out tracks from of their album Best Intensions. The set follows a continuous string of fun blasts shot out from a small front woman with a big voice; Tay showcases her fresh, melodic singing power at its absolute best during 'You’ve Got It Made'. Anybody that doubted female fronted bands have certainly met their match here at Islington Academy. Whilst their set resembles a shaken bottle of pop that explodes the more they get into it, they prove that any of those big bands they previously supported need to make way for this fresh lot because anything they can do We Are The In Crowd can do better.
Brian from The Summer Set joins the five piece for new single 'Kiss Me' before ending the extremely pop-punk night with 'Both Sides Of The Story' from a band that have made the best possible impression and gives way to much excitement at the prospect of future headlining shows from We Are The In Crowd.
