Kicking off the night was Orlando, sharing an honest and quirky performance that shed light on his jazz-infused vocals and humorous storytelling.

Navigating through his early twenties, the bedroom auteur was met with smiles all round as he played his first gig to a live audience.

Next to take the stage was Dover's very own, Rudie Edwards. Alongside her bubbling charisma, is a leaning towards raw lyrics that waver through Rudie's past, touching on her first experiences with love.

A powerful and soulful voice filled the room, steering the night into a new direction.

VC Pines indeed carried this same energy, using his lockdown as an opportunity for reflection and self-exploration.

This shone through his performance, playing a stripped-back set of this summer's EP, 'Concrete,' inviting the intimate crowd to experience a new dimension to the project. 

Bringing all the heat for the final act of the night was rock prodigy Aziya.

Through her larger-than-life vocals, the 21 year-old takes her crowds on a journey of an evolving youth, a hurricane of emotions that live within the band's music.

Embracing moments of groove and alt-pop with her electric guitar as her weapon of choice, Aziya left CLASH Live with an unshakeable buzz.

Photographer Sean Kiilu got up close, capturing the night through his fish-eye lens.
