After the taking the stage at 1pm (BST) to the sounds of instrumental opener ‘Tough Terrible’, during which Lean danced manically, the band played a selection of songs from their forthcoming debut album.

‘Tough Terrible’

‘Lonely Buoy’

‘I Ain’t Sure’



‘Dear Rose’

‘In Competition’

‘Lucio Starts Fires’

‘Where Do You Go’
