Live Review: Patent Pending - O2 Islington Academy, London 28/05/2017
The Boy Jumps Ship lads, all the way from Newcastle-Upon-Tyne are where pop-punk, indie and alt-rock collide. They’re accessible and check all the boxes that should land them on prime-time radio, yet still have the heavier elements of the alt-rock scene that fits them comfortably onto this bill. If the crowd weren’t excited before, they are now. Tracks “Make You Proud” and “Burn” make the crowd bounce and sing as if this were the main event, alas – there’s more to come.
