Q Magazine review – Sean Grant & The Wolfgang – Live!

Two hundred bands and 2,000 punters were crammed into 20 venues across North London, all in the name of Camden Rocks festival (31 May). The area has a history for nurturing the best in new talent and showcasing more established acts, so I made it my mission to catch the best of both. Playing the Forge, Sean Grant And The Wolfgang looked sharp with shirts and braces, slicked back hair and twisty moustaches. The 25-year-old and his three-piece band sing soulful indie folk tales of working class hardships and love. Hoist The Sail and I Am The Devil have bluesy personality that immediately draw positive comparisons to Frank Turner. Grant and Co bring an enlightening blend of chilled out folky tunes to Camden Rocks, which ensure that they won’t be playing opening slots for much longer.
On the road: Northampton Music Festival (22 June), Milton Keynes Tattoo Convention (13 July), Properstock Festival (19 July), Simon Says Festival (27 July)
