The Islington show came as Blossoms readied themselves for a summer of activity, which includes a headline set at Neighbourhood Weekender, appearances at Glastonbury, Y Not and Truck festivals, and supporting The Killers at their huge outdoor shows in June.

Blossoms will then head to North America for more gigs in August, before returning to Europe in the autumn.

The band's latest single, The Sulking Poet, was a recent Radio X Record Of The Week.
