And, in fact, that is probably the best part about FANDOM: Live In The UK: it strikes the perfect balance between human touches and boundary-pushing editing. The mellow High Definition and acoustic 21 Questions show Waterparks at their most emotionally raw, while the fired-up War Crimes (featuring a cameo from support artist De’Wayne) and aggro closer Turbulent boast the band’s sky-scraping ambitions.
What is perhaps most exciting of all, though, is that this is still really just the beginning. Next year – COVID-19 allowing, of course – Waterparks will return to the UK to perform at the biggest venues of their career, including a stop at London’s iconic 5,000-capacity O2 Academy Brixton. Armed with ace 2020 single Lowkey As Hell (and maybe even more new music by then?), you wouldn’t bet against them raising the bar even higher. Until then, FANDOM: Live In The UK displays the trio at their creative, dynamic peak.
