For the first time in its nine year history, The Deep, one of the most unique aquariums in the UK plays host to a live showcase for melancholy Brit rockers I Like Trains tonight. An intimate gig, attended by one-hundred or so dedicated fans, set against a backdrop of the fantastically eerie exhibitions of a synthetic underwater kingdom became as surreal as any life show we have ever seen!

Even the gilled residents seem to loom closer to listen as the group perform some of the most powerful and atmospheric tracks from their new album, ‘He Who Saw The Deep’ (which is incidentally, being launched at this ‘ere show). It really is an aptly titled record though, seeing as everyone had the chance to tour the facility before settling in for this evening’s feature presentation. With new tracks such as ‘Doves’ and ‘Broken Bones’ playing out into the darkness, all atmospheric riffs and intricate beats – the band cement themselves as one of the Yorkshire’s most engaging live acts. The audience is immersed in an incredibly rich and soulful performance. With a unique energy to their material ILT is definitely a band for those fans of other such artists as UNKLE, Porcupine Tree and Interpol.
