Glastonbury Review: Arcxxs

June 28, 2024

Brighton duo Arxx were fulfilling a life-long dream by appearing at Glastonbury this year, however even they were clearly taken back by the thousand + strong crowd that greeted them. Many of them genuine fans there to support rather than causal observers hunting for any type of music on the second day.

It seems playing on the Thursday was a smart move for the band and their infectious new more pop direction seems to be encouraging to higher heights than their punky origins.

Hannah Pudduck and Clara Townsend have been best mates since they were tiny and their charming often hilarious banter could easily pave the way for a very different kind of career. Crying In the Carwash is proceeded by a story on how Puddick first found out the pair got a support on a much loved artist and promptly burst in to tears while having her car cleaned. It’s all rather endearing and rather charming.

The Last Time , Good Boy and several others all prompted call and response from the audience before a genuinely great closer with the title track off their debut album “Ride Or Die”

Playing at the BBC Introducing stage today expect to see these girls rise up the running order of the larger stages. Any casual listeners that did attend left clearly won over.
