"I force you to party with us... to some melencolly"
Band Of Horses take to the stage at the Manchester Academy on a cold and otherwise miserable Monday night, and genuinely seem grateful for the turn out. The turn out is down to years of hard work and four great albums; they have proved the test of time.
Opening the set with 'On My Way Back Home' the band work their way through their back catalogue, avoiding any kind of chronological order and try "to mix it up a bit and not play all the same songs". However, it was their most known songs such as 'Ode to LRC', 'Is there a ghost in my house' and 'No Ones Gonna Love You' that pleased the crowd the most.
For me my favourite of the night was when they performed 'The Funeral'. It was awesome in the truest sense of the word.
Hopefully they will be back again soon to grace us with their melancholy.
