Review: I Am Kloot at Trinity by Mark Taylor 9/10
MORE than a decade since they released their debut album, cult Mancunian trio I Am Kloot are clearly finding it difficult to hide their joy and surprise at suddenly entering the mainstream.
The band's latest album, Let It All In, is their first taste of life in the top 10 and they stopped off in Bristol on the penultimate night of their first sell-out tour just ahead of a new single, the video of which stars Life on Mars actor John Simms.
Contemporaries of Doves and Elbow (whose Guy Garvey and Craig Potter produced the new album), the songs of I Am Kloot may lack the sweeping orchestration and darkness of their peers but when it comes to pure melodicism, emotion and wit, Bramwell's songs are a match for anybody.
Augmented with additional musicians providing brass and keyboards, this was a more beefed up sound from the trio than on record and over 90 minutes they mined their back catalogue to produce a set of favourites, old and new.

From 2010's Mercury-nominated Sky at Night, Fingerprints, Northern Skies and Radiation were received warmly, with Proof inspiring a mass singalong from the first note.
Of the newer material, new single Some Better Day and the Beatlesque Masquerade were particularly well received, whilst Morning Rain and No Fear of Falling, from 2001's Natural History, were greeted like long-lost and very dear friends.
