The band return to their roots - and they find time to play a brand new song...
Razorlight returned to their roots last night by playing a packed out show at LONDON’s CAMDEN BARFLY (July 15).
The band tore through a highly charged set in front of 200 lucky fans and even treated the sweaty crowd to a new song, ‘Keep The Right Profile’.
Speaking to NME.COM after the gig, singer Johnny Borrell said: “I was lying in bed and I was listening to music before the gig and it reminded me exactly why I always wanted to be in band and I took that to the stage. It was great people now knowing the words to the songs – the songs on the album are now coming alive. I really enjoyed it. It was a really good gig.”
He added: “It’s been a year since we’ve played here and that was our moment – that’s your chance to make an impression and I remember how wound up and nervous I was to do it last time. It was really good coming back.”
Razorlight opened the set with ‘Rip It Up’ before launching into tracks from their debut album ‘Up All Night’, including ‘Stumble And Fall’, ‘Don’t Go Back To Dalston’, ‘Vice’, ‘Which Way Is Out’, ‘Rock ‘N’ Roll Lies’, ‘In The City’ and the recent single ‘Golden Touch’.
The heat in the packed room even got too much for Borrell, who tore off his T-shirt halfway through the set.
The gig – part of the Carling Live Sessions – was also watched by Hope Of The States singer Sam Herlihy, who told NME.COM: “It was fantastic – it was far too hot but it was great. Too many bands get sucked in to doing endless boring tours, so to come back somewhere like this – a place where for so many bands is such an important place to play – it’s fantastic.”
He added: “Everyone was packed in like battery hens but you still got such a great atmosphere.”
Support last night came from The Cribs and The Archie Bronson Outfit.
Razorlight have revealed that their next single will be ‘Vice’, though no further details have been confirmed.
