If anybody managed to show pandemic lemons into pandemic lemonade, it was Arlo Parks. The London-born artist shot to fame at double pace because of her soothing, lo-fi indie-pop, which supplied consolation to a nation in lockdown.

Whether or not she was articulating the load of a good friend’s despair in “Black Canine” or offering hopeful solace in “Harm”, Parks was not simply the musical star of 2020, however its saviour. Right here at Glastonbury among the many showers, the Mercury Prize-winning artist beams from the Park Stage with such confidence that you simply’re virtually satisfied it was named after her.

Because the soggy crowd bobs to the susceptible “Blueish”, the catharsis of listening at house isn’t simply matched, however outdated. “Music has been that therapeutic house for me” the 21-year-old tells us, as the fragile pangs of “Black Canine” start. Parks, who launched her debut album Collapsed in Sunbeams final yr, glides effortlessly by the set. The group – who’ve waited for a second like this since 2019 – enjoy her diaphonous vocals. A second of pure sunshine. ★★★★☆

Of all of the bands spearheading the indie revival, none shapeshift fairly like Wolf Alice. Theirs is a palimpsest of types: some shoegaze right here, some storage rock there. People, grunge and electronica additionally fall into the combination.

Rising at a time when guitar music was turning into more and more moribund, they’ve finished fairly nicely to get the place they’ve. Three top-five information (the final of which went to No 1).

Libertines overview, Different Stage

Friday 24 June 2022 18:15 , Mark Beaumont

How the tables flip. As soon as, The Libertines stored the crowds ready and performed as if they might disintegrate at any second. At the moment – because of an 11.30am set that marks the de facto begin of Glastonbury – it’s their followers who’re rolling in late, bug-eyed and saggy.

All the eye is on frontman Pete Doherty. He was at one level an important rock star in Britain, each ridiculously well-known and extremely influential, spawning a complete scene of lesser imitators. He was relentlessly pursued throughout London by paparazzi. Today, he lives a quieter life in France along with his spouse, Katia De Vidas. Along with his flat cap, he really bears a passing resemblance to Pascal, the prickly French husband of Noughties “I’m too lovely” Every day Mail columnist Samantha Brick.

There’s a contact of Phoenix Nights to this so-called indie sleaze revival – the nostalgic motion kickstarted throughout lockdown by an Instagram account devoted to reviving the reminiscences of the 2000s indie scene. Final month at Primavera Sound in Barcelona, we glimpsed it in The Strokes’ Julian Casablancas – a bit of older however no much less sharp onstage. At the moment, Barat and Doherty are on advantageous type as they flip in each hit from their again catalogue.

They open with “Up the Bracket”. As they face off and sing collectively into the mic, for a short second there may be the fascinating sense that nothing has modified in spite of everything. There’s an early singalong in “What Katie Did”. “You’re a candy, candy woman,” sings the group, “but it surely’s a merciless world.” Barat belts it out in a Scorpion jacket that channels Ryan Gosling in Drive. Doherty, in the meantime, has donned a tunic and rosary, and bops round onstage like Friar Tuck. In a playful temper, he reads out what he describes as “a particular message from Michael Eavis… ‘get off my land’”.

Dry Cleansing overview

Sure, there may be Moist Leg, clearly, however there may be additionally Dry Cleansing – the opposite British band with a cool deadpan sprechstimme – who begin enjoying on the Park simply because the British phenomenon are ending up their set on the Different Stage.

The south-London four-piece’s supply is much less poppy. Florence Shaw’s breezy supply rubs properly towards the abrasive guitar work of Tom Dowse. The 2 typically sound as if they’re competing with one another.

The band are about to launch a brand new album, and new single Don’t Press Me experiments with a glimmer of melody in its childlike refrain. However for essentially the most half, Shaw impacts a restricted vary, and there are moments their music immediately feels a bit of dirge-y. Their most upbeat tracks, “Robust Emotions”, “Magic of Meghan” and “Scratchcard Lanyard”, are nonetheless sensible.

And Shaw could have an effect on standoffishness, however she nonetheless has a few of the cutest crowd chat. “Simply to elucidate what I used to be doing then,” she says in the direction of the tip of her set, wiping her face after bonking the mic. “Generally lipstick will get on the microphone. after which typically I hit the microphone. after which I find yourself with little bits of lipstick on my face.” ★★★★☆

Little past spiritual pilgrimages and zombie apocalypses draw a crowd like Moist Leg at The Park. Up the hill they arrive of their 1000’s, cramming the sector proper as much as the Crow’s Nest and jostling for house on the prime of the ribbon tower. It’s clearly indie pop’s flip again on the helm of the zeitgeist and isn’t laborious to see why.

If their singles signify a modernist revival of febrile 2000s alt-pop – “Chaise Longue” and “Moist Dream” particularly sound just like the product of an AI writing “indie sleaze” songs after being fed nothing however Peaches’ information – the remainder of their set is wealthy in deeper various references.

“Grocery store” throws again to the melodic grunge of Veruca Salt. “Being in Love” and “I Don’t Wish to Go Out” are attuned to Wolf Alice’s extra attractive, glacial up to date textures. And the spiteful “Ur Mum” may very well be a chant-along from Glastonbury’s peak Britpop years, ricocheting alongside like Damon Albarn and Justine Frischmann have been nonetheless mid-breakup.
