Cambridge musician Cavetown took to the stage of London’s Iconic Eventim Apollo on Saturday night, following the release of his latest album. Cavetown, whose real name is Robbie, released album Worm Food on Friday 4th November, following much success to their previous albums including Sleepy Head and Lemon Boy.
The 23-year-old singer, who plays a key part within the young, queer community, created a beautiful atmosphere within the Apollo, where pride flags covered the stalls and gendered toilets became a thing of the past. Reflecting his community, Robbie’s musical sound is a mixture of mellow, indie pop. The type of music you cosy up to listen to, and appreciate – like a giant hug. This is what Saturday night in itself was like. Vibrant colours, phone torches, warm hugs and dancing beneath fluttering confetti. The dreamiest way to fill, what would otherwise be, an empty concert hall. And what many, including Robbie, would say: “This Is Home”.

Supporting Cavetown was fellow indie-pop musicians Sidney Gish and Orla Gartland. Orla also joined Robbie onstage, for the opening song of his set – “Fall In Love with a Girl”. Orla released her debut album Woman on the Internet last summer, which peaked at number 10 in the UK charts.
