I had high expectations on the way to Vicar Street last Friday night. Fleet Foxes are one of the most outrageously talented bands to emerge in a long long time. Their eponymously titled debut album is an instant classic and the Sun Giant EP that preceded it is flawless too.
Its great to be able to say I thought they were even better live. I went with three friends and we all thought they were amazing - Ciara did think they needed a wash and some fattening up though.
The songs sound timeless and the harmonies are beautiful. There’s no potential here, its all in place, a fully realised act. They are the Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young of our time, only better.
Some good photos from the gig.
And two videos of the singles from the album below.
