Playing to small crowd of about 40 people, Kate Boy, the Swedish-Australian trio, appear before their audience all dressed alike and ready to deliver their first set in Manchester on the back of having received considerable attention via their social media. Opening with ‘In Your Eyes’, their music is, to begin with, received rather well by those before them, but it is ‘Self Control’, that proves to be a real highlight as, in the small space, a number of people attempt to dance along to the beat. Frequently trying to interact and converse with both one another and the audience doesn’t work particularly well, but what does is when on more than one occasion, the trio drum in harmony, electronically, as their shadows are reflected onto the walls. Over the course of an hour, they even illicit later visits from a number of people who rush down the steps to check out what’s going on, notably drawn to the bands’ unusual style and genre of music. For a first show in the city, Kate Boy impress a few, baffle a few more, but ultimately end the night with a distinctively average show behind them.
