Six-piece close BBC Introducing stage in typically raucous style
The Glaswegian band headlined the stage with a short performance that made the gathered crowd indulge in something approaching a collective group hug.
During new single ‘Some Dresses’, singers John Baillie Jr and Calum Gunn split the crowd in two for what they called the ‘Wall Of Cuddles‘.
Rather than making the two sides of the crowd “kick the shit out of each other”, the band suggested each crowd member pick a partner from the opposite side and, when the music started again, run and give them a massive cuddle.
Within seconds, the audience was a heaving mass of people embracing one another as the song reached its climax.
‘Pink Sabbath’ and ‘Black Wax’ also went down extremely well, with Gunn spending as much time down the front as onstage.
