Years & Years + Sam Sure + Zibra, The Institute Library

Small review for ZIBRA’s gig supporting Years and Years in Birmingham

Years_And_Years_02-600x398

Opening tonight’s proceedings were the bass ridden pop quartet Zibra. On the opening date of a sold out tour and with a venue upgrade too, Zibra played to a pretty packed out room. However, I sensed a lack of enjoyment amongst the crowd seeing as half of them took the opportunity to use their phones, possibly to check if a dress was blue/black or white/gold. Royal Blood, The 1975 and a sample pad would be an accurate description of Zibra but with the bass turned to eleven and a seemingly inexperienced sound engineer, all I could hear was their thumping bass lines and funky hi hat beats. Finishing with a cover, the four-piece seemed happy with their performance. This was by no means a bad set, but the combination of a hard to please audience, bad sound and a lack of known material turned what potentially could have been good, into something quite average.

Original review.
