Merseysiders The K`s arrive in Brum a couple of weeks after the release of their cracking debut album `I Wonder If The World Knows`. There’s a real sense of palpable anticipation as this nigh-on sold-out crowd of around fifteen hundred souls are already singing along to the tracks being played through the p.a. system prior to the bands` arrival.

The strings to `Icarus` ring out as the fellas hit the stage and the venue goes into a frenzy.

The pulsating `Chancer` follows before the soaring and anthemic `Heart on My Sleeve` is aired.

The pace doesn’t let up with the single `Picture`, the gleaming `Circles` and `Glass Towns` before the emotive ballad like `Hoping Maybe` rings out with a snippet of Cyndi Lauper’s `Girls Just Want To Have Fun` shared at the introduction to the song.

The contemplative `Throw It All Away` has everybody dancing before the reflective ballad like `Lights Go Down` has the crowd almost mesmerised. `No Place Like Home` sounds as anxious as it is on the long player before the band closes out the show with the thoughtful `Aurora`.

The quartet returns for a three-song encore which includes the meditative `Valley One`, and the fairly amusing `Hometown` before the blistering `Sarajevo` sends us out into the cold April night.

The Main Stages of the Reading and Leeds festival awaits the band this Summer and on the strength of their seventy-five-minute set tonight, the World seems to be the band’s oyster.
