South London seven-piece, Clement Marfo & The Frontline graced the stage of the Camden venue on Friday (30th March). A different direction from Club NME‘s usual indie next-big-things which headline the club night.
The band have gained attention from supporting some of the best up and coming British acts, of the past few years, such as Plan B, Example and Florence + The Machine. The gig came days after the band’s collaboration with Kano for their latest single Mayhem.
The gig at Koko had a more mellow atmosphere than the usual mosh pits, crushed lungs and waves upon waves of crowd surfers. Although, the crowd were dancing and singing along in support of the band with equal gusto to any scenesters. The band encouraged moshing and Clement Marfo jumped into the crowd but he was soon swallowed.
It was a fun night despite being able to breath in the front row. Check them out for some British grime from an eclectic group, they’ll be performing at Isle of Wight Festival, Wireless and Redfest this year so don’t miss out, they could be the next big thing after all.
