Latitude 2015

Toro Y Moi’s Latitude 2015 set gets burnt by the sun

Familiarity proves to be Chaz Bundwick and co.’s undoing at Latitude.

Toro Y Moi’s name is borderline household for those with one toe still dipped in the packed pool party of indie-pop. Familiarity proves to be Chaz Bundwick and co.’s undoing at Latitude 2015 though, drawing one of the smallest 6 Music tent’s crowds of the day.

The bulked-up live five-piece put Bundwick’s honey-slick melodies through their paces nevertheless, inciting toe-tapping and head-bopping with early highlight ‘Buffalo’ from this year’s ‘What For?’ LP, but while the tent fills gradually and the end-of-song cheers get louder, things never feel united, or indeed urgent, enough to uproot feet beyond the first few rows.

As the set goes on and the world outside the tent basks in the height of summer, the crowds have clearly decided to get their sunshine in real-time, rather than via Bundick’s admittedly bright display.
