It’s been a while since Long Island’s finest graced a Birmingham stage but tonight, at the O2 Academy, Brand New were on fine form as they ploughed through a crowd-pleasing set featuring an unplanned airing of I Will Play My Game Beneath the Spin Light.
Jesse Lacey was his usual shadowy self (literally for much of the set, as the lights were kept moody and dim) but the whole band played beautifully and won’t have left any fans disappointed.
