The Head and The Heart @ Latitude

With festival season well underway, Latitude weekend came around in the outskirts of Suffolk surrounded by only woodlands, pink sheep and lots of good music.

Heading down to the BBC Music Stage on the Saturday were folk pop creatives The Head and The Heart. After having a break to fulfil other motives they came back with their latest release Signs of Light which is a compilation of all the inspiration found during their time apart.

The crowd that gathered for their set was a mass of all ages from the front to the back, all ready to wave and sway to the uplifting yet appeasing set. They definitely received back every ounce of energy they were giving out, in particular the raw emotion coming from vocalist Jonathan Russell who was clearly loving every moment just as much as us. Of course a popular favourite was “All We Ever Knew” which with its call and response vibe allowed even complete novices to feel a part of the community within the evasion they created away from the main stage.

A set full of songs came to an end only too soon with a whole array of applause from everyone there who were now feeling re-energised and prepared to go back to the craziness of the festival.
