Having debuted in London late last year, No Sinner returned to the big smoke to a warm welcome from an eager audience at The Garage in Islington. From the look of the crowd it seems the band is certainly starting to attract an array of fans across Europe.
The gig kicked off with a lively rendition of their new single “Love Is Madness.” It was a distinct reminder of the power and talent the troupe has. Bounding onto the stage, Colleen Rennison took the mic and captivated the crowd within a few lines. Her voice is a raspy high-octane rush that blends so well with the blues rock backing.
A couple of new tracks followed the opener and were just as intense as the first. “September Moon” was the seventh song of the set and slowed the gig down. It’s pearl of a blues tune that gave the band a chance to show off their intimate side.
No Sinner finished on high with the title track of their album “Boo Hoo Hoo.” It was a belter and received a well-earned applause. They are definitely one of the top blues rock bands out there at the moment.
