Our penultimate band tonight are Captain Horizon and I am yet to see or hear a bad word said about this band who seem to be making more than a positive niche for themselves within the Midlands music scene. Reflecting upon the EP’s released to date by Captain Horizon, there seems to be no shortage of ability and creativity going on here, with glorious melodies and a smart aptitude to write lyrics that stay with you, being present in just about everything I have heard. So, with that in mind, it is the performance and delivery of these songs that holds a strong draw for me tonight.
First impressions live did not fail as Captain Horizon simply erupted upon stage with a force that brought a smile of joy to my face in the smug knowledge that these guys were exactly what I hoped they would be, plus much more. Masked front man Steve Whittington will never be called a shrinking violet, as neither will be Alex Thomson on bass, as both have the capacity to master every inch of a stage that they are given, and I was more than slightly surprised by the fact that the crowd barriers managed to contain both from venturing further afield. Delivery of every song tonight proved that the talent that nestles within this band sits within gifted ability and long may this remain as Captain Horizon are truly destined for great things to come their way.
