PUPPY have gradually been rising up the UK rock scene over the past two years. Whilst supporting KVELERTAK on their UK tour the band played a few headline shows of their own. Finishing with a night at the Boston Music Room in London.
MUMMY get the evening off to a fun start with a blast of noisy punk rock. There’s a sludgy edge to their sound which makes the riffs sound bigger. And the attitude of the vocals really adds to the personality of their sound. They definitely do a good job getting the crowd warmed up for PUPPY and win over some new fans in the process.
PUPPY‘s set tonight feels like the start of something very special for the band. With the venue decked out in posters inspired by their latest music video it feels like PUPPY are really putting the effort in. Opening with Entombed is a great way to begin things, with that hulking riff immediately grabbing everyone’s attention. The fact the room is near enough completely packed out as well is a great sign that PUPPY are headed in the right direction.
From the very start they have had a very unique sound with their mix of huge metallic riffs and weird alt-rock vocals really stand out and all the songs off the first two EPs sound brilliant live. Arabella sounds particularly brilliant with everyone singing along to its chorus. But the real highlight has to be latest Demons which suggests that what comes next from PUPPY should be something worth paying a lot of attention to. The only real problem with tonight is just how short it is, obviously with only two EPs out there is a limit to how much PUPPY can play but it is a shame they didn’t show off some more new music. Still in some ways it’s good to leave the audience wanting more and PUPPY certainly achieve that tonight.
