Nine Black Alps

Two years ago, 9BA were the rising stars of indie rock. They released an epic, slow burning, album named "Everything Is", and then vanished. Few thought they would be heard of again, but now they are back, playing a mid-afternoon set on an inappropriately sunny day and, hell, they are way better than they were before.

From the opening bars of "Just Friends" to the dying embers of "Shot Down", we are taken on a rollercoaster ride of emotions, into which new tracks such as "Burn Faster" and "Heavier Than Water" slip seamlessly and amid which "Unsatisfied" provides a stunning highlight. A truly classic festival moment.
