With summer bleeding into autumn it was a perfect night to catch Season's End. Oozing class and professionalism they took the stage with singer Becki Clark putting her indelible stamp on proceedings as the rest of the band, crashed into life behind her. My eyes were distracted by a cocky as hell show from drummer Paul White as he put on a fine stick twirling display without missing a single beat. One Sadness, which is from the debut album The Failing Light, sumptuously drew us in, before a flourish of instrumentation swiped any hint of minimalism away. The two doctrines perfectly contrasted each other as the rich tapestry of the song had you headbanging one second and shoe gazing the next. The somewhat brief show embellished by Dave Stanton's confident vocals counter-playing and flirting with Becki's feminine charms. Perhaps the Ice Queen has some competition from these shores. One thing is certain, there is nothing teasing from Season's End they are in it for the ride and theirs is a name you will no doubt be hearing shouted from the rooftops before long.
