On Friday 14 September, Ravens In Paris played the iconic Barfly in Camden, a proper dark atmospheric venue with a stereotypical sticky floor. The only thing missing was a cloud of cigarette mist above the audience, like in the olden days, but that didn’t take away from the great feel of the room.
I reviewed the band’s debut EP Dirty Little Secret here not too long ago, and was intrigued to discover if they would be able to capture the explosive energy I’d heard on the record. They certainly did not let me down. Their performance was tight and electrifying, with every song sounding as good as the EP but with the additional power a live performance generates. Definitely one of those bands you must catch live at least once, though I suspect once it’s all it will take for you to become hooked. Not a bad thing at all.

Lastly, check out their fantastic video of By Candlelight, which captures that great energy I had the fortune of seeing live.
