Band play Virgin Media Union tent show in Chelmsford
The Eel Pie Island band drew a healthy crowd to their show in the Virgin Media Union tent, with the crowd boo-ing near the end of the set when they announced they had just one more song to play – with the collected fans eager for more.
As well as older fan favourites the band played a new song, ‘Lady Grey’. “We’ve been making our new record this summer,” frontman Blaine Harrison told the crowd, introducing the song. “We’d like to play you a song from it.”
The band earned a mass of hand waves for their rendition of slow song ‘Flakes’, while Harrison asked, “V, are you ready to dance?” as set-closer ‘Behind The Bunhouse’ picked up the pace.
Mystery Jets played:
‘Half In Love With Elizabeth’
‘Veiled In Grey’
‘Two Doors Down’
‘Behind The Bunhouse’
