Shockwaves NME Awards Show: The Maccabees, London KOKO; Tue Feb 27

Orlando's dive from the drums gets 10s all round

Shockwaves NME Awards Show: The Maccabees, London KOKO; Tue Feb 27

We’ve never seen a band so keen to play a gig. Leaping on the stage desperate to drop their new carpet bombing tirade of tracks on an unsuspecting crowd, The Maccabees rip through ‘First Love’, ‘Latchmere’ and ‘Precious Time’. These tracks from the highly-anticipated debut perfectly soundtrack the crowdsurfing frenzy below, but it’s Orlando Bloom climbing onto the drum kit and bouncing off the cymbals like a pill-popping Zebedee that makes the night.
