Today I have a music review for you guys. I present to you my Ourkid live review! Ourkid is a Manchester based indie band who are made up of Thom Webb-Riley on lead vocals and acoustic guitar, Jamie Byrne on lead guitar and backing vocals, Rob Edward on bass guitar and Harvey Simister on drums.
In the dark and crowded brick building burrowed beneath one of Manchester’s bridges the indie boys known as Ourkid were getting ready to perform their set which was one amongst many for the Below the Bridge bank holiday event. Our Kid’s musical philosophy is “to provide the bops that slap” and their live show did just that. Although Ourkid didn’t have the longest setlist of the night, they did perform a fun, Manchester flavoured gig which has the audience bopping along.
Their first song was a mellow sound which warmed both the band and the audience up for the rest of the performance. Lead singer Thom made a grand entrance as the vocalist rolled up to the mic with acoustic guitar in hand and also, an ahegao hoodie. The hoodie really stood out to me, an anime fan, as it was a fun and humorous touch to their casual, indie look.
Ourkid songs may be short and sweet but they are what indie is all about. Their music might be straight out of a garage but they have their songs and performance polished. I’m sure that Ourkid can not only impress the Manchester music scene but also impact the indie scene both regionally and globally!
