"Their set started with a couple of explosive Rock numbers that demanded everybody’s attention, and soon had the audience tapping along to the beat. They then showed their softer, more sensitive side by performing latest single 'Towers', with its powerful guitar and authentic Blues twang, which also made the most of Andy’s smooth yet sharp vocals. The raw energy of 'Surrender' raised the pace again, setting the scene for the accelerating rhythm and passionate vocals of 'Close To Nowhere'. This song’s repetitive guitar and drum riff were cleverly used to build up to the explosive chorus, a fitting finale for Cortes’s set: as it finished the roaring applause was inevitable."
