Used to making more complex sounding music, Yunioshi's acoustic performance in the cave's of the Loggerheads showed a substantial difference to their normally electro sound.
Although not initially my cup of tea, the acoustics alongside improvisations with toy-like instruments not only made their music more assessable, but also provided one of the highlights of the night in a cover of Britney Spears's Toxic. Claiming to usually be more together, it was obvious that Yunioshi were out of their comfort zone whilst some of the other acts shone. The problem was clear; this band are not used to simplicity. On a personal note, although not completely blown away, i found the bands new acoustic sound much easier to listen to and more in tune with the theme of Wire and Wool but still not removed from their electronic background.
However, there's no denying that most of the brilliance of the night came from the surroundings, which gave an intimate look into some of Nottingham's finest singer/songwriters. My highlight of the evening came in the form of Will Jeffery, who's easy going attitude, soulful voice and clear aptitude to make any song his own, including a brilliant adaptation of the 'Fresh Prince of Bel Air' theme tune, had everyone singing along and wishing his set would never end.
Hidden away in the Lace Market, The Loggerheads provided a laid back approach to showcasing up and coming home grown talent. With the event scheduled to take place every month, there's no doubt Wire and Wool is destined to ensure that the Loggerheads remains Nottingham's best kept secret no more.
Wire and Wool takes place at The Loggerheads on the last Friday of every month.
