    Tindersticks concert at the London Royal Festival was superlative.
    Their only British performance in this short tour promoting Hungry Saw, their first album in 5 years, was definitely a shiny night.
    Despite the concert opened with the first seven tracks in the order of the last album, it was immediately clear that tonight’s show was not about the set-list but about creating a memorable experience.

    Tindersticks didn’t opt for a greatest hits comeback tour, but showed off their most recent music, dosed with pearls from the past, with the clear message that they are on top form and don’t need to stick to the safe hits.
    On stage the original members, Stuart Staples, David Boulter and Neil Fraser, brought an impressive ensemble of fifteen elements, including strings, brasses, keyboards and anything else that could help building their distinctive gloomy atmospheres.
