"Shoot to Krill!", "License to Krill!" members of the audience exclaim. It's evident to see that within the black lacquered confine of the Old Blue Last, 'Krill' has managed to enter the cultural vernacular. For those who have bought into the supposed 'Cult Of Krill', this evening is highly anticipated. It is only the trio's debut appearance in London to promote A Distant Fist Unclenching, yet the fan base conglomerates as a pulsating organism to echo "Krill forever and ever" back at frontman Jonah Furman.

The first hand-picked support act, Chalk, foster the direction of the evening. Hailing from Brighton, the three-piece trifle with the oversea sounds of the mid-west. Mellotron whines beneath lacklustre groans and lo-fi, folky, flittering guitar. London's Brunch take to the stage in the same fashion. The occasional mumble of reluctant speech pierces silences between acrid guitar and forceful melodies. The set is delivered with a Bandwagonesque power pop sensibility that sets the act apart.

By the time Krill have taken to the stage, an electrifying expectancy has already overwhelmed those in attendance. 'Purity of Heart' eases the audience into the set. The band's idiosyncratic sound has become the audience's worst kept secret. Adenoidal vocal delivery, plundering bass and clamorous guitar perhaps paints a questionable image. However, for those who have become invested in the Boston drawl, Krill champion outsider sounds.

"That's cool man, busy's a good problem to have," Jonah Furman yelps during 'Steve Hears Pile In Malden and Bursts Into Tears'. Similarly to Pile, Krill have been endowed with the same issue. Despite the release of the latest LP and recital of the cacophonous 'Foot', Krill finish the set on the demand of an encore with 'Infinite Power' jesting, "let's finish on a positive note."
