VLURE are a unique proposition; a band that is going to stand out from the crowd and make a difference. This is a hometown crowd, granted, but they threaten at points to completely overshadow the headliners. Whether that be the songs, and they possess a set full of gargantuan synth-driven songs with anthemic choruses but delivered with an intensity and power that's claustrophobic and overwhelming in such a confined space, or the manner in which they're delivered with Hamish either up on the barrier or in among us, eyeball to eyeball, fist beating against his chest, forehead to forehead with the audience, planting a soft kiss on the brow of friends and of Conor who joins him on the floor. It's impossible not to be drawn in and immersed in the sheer magnetic draw which they possess.
