Upcoming band Little Brother Eli from Oxford grabbed the main support slot on Wednesday night at Hoxton Square Bar & Kitchen to headliners Sam & The Black Seeds, but forget the headliners our main attention is on Little Brother Eli and they killed it!
First hearing their latest single ‘Oceans’ I immediately knew this band had something great about them, noticeable vocalist Alex Grew’s talent is astonishing and it surprises me the band haven’t got the reception they deserve yet. But the band as a whole create awesome Blues Rock and the climax in ‘Oceans’ is just wow. Opening with ‘Oceans” they got the crowd warmed up and ready for the exciting night ahead of them. Musically and performance wise Little Brother Eli were on point, playing as if they were the headliners they kept the crowd intrigued and motivated. Other material such as ‘This Girl’ is heavier and guitarist Adam Stowe rocked it, witnessing the band with their impeccable chemistry is impossible not to feel the beat and have as much fun as Little Brother Eli are.
With reminiscence of Maroon 5 and guitar inspiration from The White Stripes and The Black Keys, Little Brother Eli have already gained the likeable factor, throw in some talent and some good looking guys; I keep questioning “Why are they only supporting?”. Ultimately Little Brother Eli rocked Hoxton and with a dedicated fan base already, with chants of “One more song”, I suggest catching them live now before they finally get the recognition they deserve.
