TFT were next up who were recording tonight’s show. Leader of this rap / rock (and so much more) fusion troupe TFT spoke at the start how this is what he lived for – performing, writing, creating – and thanked the crowd for coming, many who seemed to be seasoned fans already. The singer dressed a cross between a motocross rider / Bane and a Jawa with the mask and brown hoodie, he kicked into the first number which had a spoken word intro which transcended into power rock chords and drumming then back into the more ballad like realms.
Many of their tunes had a similar formula but all unique in their own way. No two songs were the same or boring. I wasn't sure if I was at a rap show, metal or rock with this band but I didn’t need to decide as TFT seemed to blend all these quite well together. Not doing it to cater for all but it was organic to them and it felt real – the crowd thought so too. Launching their new EP tonight ‘Life Is’ you could feel the fan love in the room and some new converts I'm sure too. The emotional ‘If You Decide’ closed their set. TFT thanked the crowd for coming and soon enough it was the turn of sludge rockers MAXWELL STONE to hit the hallowed Sando Hotel stage
