It's our first taste of the Reds stage here at Butlins this weekend and with images of redcoats firmly at the back of our minds we ventured in to see Sian Alice Group.
Sian Alice Group come from London, and have been slowly building up audiences and buzz from their supporting appearances alongside Spiritualized and Beach House.
It's hard not to find yourself floating along in the imagery and temperate sophistication of the band's set. Frontwoman Sian Ahern seems to have everybody in a trance as she adds vocals to the repetitive experimental rock played behind her. The repetitive streak continues with nearly every song seeming to end with Ahern stomping her boots and clapping her hands.
Maybe we were hypnotised after all.
