It seems that reinvention is the key to a long and oftentimes, healthy existence. Take Funeral For A Friend as an example... we know that funerals aren’t really signifiers of good health; particularly not for the deceased, but this band has lived for a long time comparatively speaking. The focus of the six studio albums the guys have produced could only be described as varied and surprising.
Funeral For a Friend, with support from Relentless and Amourous performed at the Corner Hotel in Melbourne last night in front of their legions of fans... Serena Ho was there and brings us these photos from the pit!

Admiral Fallow hail from Glasgow, Scotland, and once lead vocalist Louis Abbott provides between song banter in that thick sexy Scottish drawl, you don’t want him to stop. “I have three brothers and I have two younger brothers, and I wrote this song for them and it’s called “Brother.” I’m shooting my mouth off and just vibing with you” purrs Abbott like a panther. Bringing their brand of folk, pop to our shores, they incite a clap along and even cries from the audience of “one more song” when they have left the stage.

To be honest with you, I have never been too familiar with Ben Howard’s music. I’ve listened to him a few times and before tonight I could only name like, 2 songs. But as of late, his name seems to be popping up pretty much everywhere from the Brit Awards to Coachella, and having cancelled his show the night before due to illness, I was bursting with curiosity as to whether the 26 year old would win me over.
