More than Music: Slaves!


Gooooood morning followers of the Hopeless Wonderer Blog.

Thanks for stopping by for the latest in my More Than Music series. The gig season is in full swing as my latest stop by was at Birmingham’s 02 Academy to see Slaves.

This arena is quite small so it was nice to be able to be at an intimate gig. We were sat balcony for a change but that didn’t stop the buzzing atmosphere and the excitement of the crowd following up to us!

Just over a month ago I hated Slaves. Their music is for those with a certain taste that’s for sure. They are shouty, un coordinated, and the complete attitude of IDGAF and I friggin love it. However over the last few weeks my opinion changed as their music drags  you into the world of alternative punk rock.

The show itself had so much energy, wilderness and unforgettable moments with Slaves coming out on stage to Venga boys?! (if you listen to their music you will realise this is bants)

This was the first time seeing Slaves and it certainly won’t be the last, I am forever in awe at the performance they provided.

What type of music do you stray towards?

Lots of Love,
