WhoBodyHow Single Release at Hyde Park Book Club 24 February 2022
Updated: Mar 11, 2022
Celebrating the catchy, somewhat psychedelic, and atmospheric first single release, Vigilant When Sober, new artist WhoBodyHow headlined an awesome night showcasing three of Leeds’ most up and coming artists.
Kicking of the night was the new Lus Tu Cru who smashed it, at only their debut gig. They merged the best parts of punk with indie and had so much energy. This was the theme of the night for sure, as the Moontown Project followed.
The energy the Moontown Project brought to their show was tangible and left every part of the crowd moving and grooving to their uplifting electronic indie. Vocalist, Seth Oraeki, brought a so much vocally to their live set, to really bring out their tunes that have already had so much success. What the Moontown Project have achieved in their locked down career is phenomenal, collaborating with Nine 8’s Bone Slim and releasing tracks like Moon Honey that have such wide appeal. Every member of the project, led by Guy and Will, seemed to be enjoying their live show, just as much as the crowd. There was a certain feeling that no one wanted the joy of their set to end and they could have played for so much longer!

The mood continued to flourish with the headliner WhoBodyHow, who showcased their compelling ‘60s influenced, Floydian at times set, which kept everyone dancing. So good were the tracks, that he even played one of them twice.
The overall show exposed just how much creative talent has been flourishing in Leeds and how the backlog of lockdown has finally given way to showcasing this. Venues like Hyde Park Book Club are so vital for showing up and coming creatives and finding new innovative ways of exhibiting this. With covid restrictions finally lifted, there was a new air of optimism that came with this very fun gig!
