I missed all but the last thirty seconds or so of Cloud Castle Lakes’ set (there was a mix-up with press passes, but it wasn’t The 405’s fault) but for what it’s worth, they were a pretty good thirty seconds. Halves were on shortly after, with a stripped back line-up, although that may have been a tactical decision given the tiny stage in Crawdaddy. They’re one of the best post-rock bands in Ireland, and even if the genre as a whole is getting a little repetitive, they hold up well as an example. Their set was beautiful. Bear In Heaven’s music is very melodic, with a mix of electronic beats and live drums, and a really solid presence live that it lacks a little on record. It’s calm and pretty, and very well-executed. I wouldn’t be surprised to see them playing a much bigger venue next time they make it over here.
