Live Music Review: Flair

2 mins read

An impromptu invite to a gig is always a good way to spend a Saturday night. This one had me stumbling on to a hidden gem: Flair. 

The up-and-coming indie band of the year, Flair, played Nice N Sleazy’s on Saturday night to a fairly packed room. Giving back the energy and more that the crowd were putting out.  

All original music, the set was propelled into action with Come & Get It, which the crowd definitely did. 

Keeping the same atmosphere with the rest of the set, the boys surprised the audience with a new song. So new that it doesn’t have a name yet. It quickly became a crowd and personal favourite. 

Following this they played what will be their debut single, City Lights. Releasing on Spotify sometime this month, so keep an eye out. 

As most artists do Flair finished with an encore, but one wasn’t enough for the crowd. With “one more tune” even drowning out the singer’s attempts to say goodbye, the band gave the crowd what they were begging for.

The local Glasgow boys have had their ups and downs finding the right bandmates for their sound, but bassist Johnny says, “…we’re probably in the best place we’ve been.”. 

If their performance at the weekend is anything to go by these lads have a bright future ahead.  

The band formed of bassist Johnny Wilkie, singer Tony Collum, drummer Callum Mcarthur, lead guitarist Jonny Donald and rhythm guitarist Louis had the crowd buzzing with energy.  

They may even be small now, but I don’t see a small future ahead for them.  

With an indie rock heart and a strong Scottish soul, Flair is going places and I can’t wait to see what they do next. 

Keep an eye out for them on all the socials and for their debut City Lights.
