Electric Picnic: White Denim - Paragon of groove

Artist: White Denim

Venue: Cosby Stage

Date Reviewed: August 30th, 2014

More groove than a lathe-makers convention. More feel than Stringer Bell. Probably the most technically gifted group you’ll see all weekend at Electric Picnic tearing through a jazzy, dirty-blues rock of a repertoire, barely pausing for breath.WhIte Denim might have the most uncool name in music, but you’ll struggle to find an act more utterly in tune with their music.

The playing is impeccable, the swagger is wide, the pace is phenomenal. We’re sure White Denim have gears one to four. We’ve just never seen them used. Outstanding.

In three words: White rock riot
