In support of their debut album release, Everything This Way, at the beginning of the year, Walking On Cars have embarked on a UK tour to promote the album. Part of the tour saw the band come to Brighton to play a show at the Concorde 2, with support from Will Joseph Cook.
Will Joseph Cook
Will Joseph Cook took to the stage at 8pm and honestly kept me entertained throughout his entire performance…I know this as I didn’t check my phone once! Over the many years I’ve been attending shows, I’ve come to not expect too much from support acts, but Will really took me by surprise.
Hailing from Tunbridge Wells, Will has been crafting his sound and touring relentlessly. He’s got an interesting blend of indie, pop and synths to make for a great sound.
The band perform incredibly well too; they’re so tight and their harmonies are remarkable – I strongly recommend watching this guy perform, I knew none of his music before but am definitely going to be checking it out now!
Highlights: The incredible harmonies made by the band members, alongside Will’s unique voice and getting the chance to meet Will after the show.

Walking On Cars
Walking On Cars really were quite something! I had heard the majority of their album prior to the evening and am already a fan, but attending their show made me realise just how much of a following they’ve been gathering.
The show was already upgraded to a bigger venue, to allow more people to get in and the passion and energy given off from the crowd was immense. Just about every lyric was chanted in unison with the band, but what made it all the more special, was the vast age range present – they truly are a band who have something to offer everyone.
One thing I realised, whilst watching them perform, is just how much lead singer, Patrick, sounds like Charlie Simpson…or is that just me?! Still, he has a fantastically diverse and powerful, yet effortless voice.
The band were super professional and polished; a real pleasure to behold! It felt like I was watching a band like The Script, Scouting For Girls or Coldplay in their earlier years, on the rise to uber fame! I hope these guys get there soon too; they deserve it!
- The tight, in-sync performance of all the band members.
- The fact that all the members offer vocals to the songs.
- Patrick’s almost-cringey, yet captivating dancing.
- Super-catchy songs!
- The way they perform their songs, longer and with fan interaction…it made the crowd seem like a sixth member of the band!
Walking On Cars @ Concorde 2, Brighton – 06/06/16
This whole evening was just great fun – I left feeling elated and am grateful to have been able to attend!
Thanks so much to Walking On Cars and Kat for putting me on the guest list, so we could come and do this review! Keep up the great work guys; you guys are definitely destined for big things!
