A week after being awarded Best UK Breakthrough act at the 2021 Heavy Music Awards, Wargasm headlined camdens Underworld. The London-based duo lit the stage on fire as they stepped out and gave fans the show of a lifetime. Fasten your seatbelts because WARGASM is becoming the new face of rock music
With live music slowly returning around the UK, it had felt like a long time since anyone has seen eager fans queueing on the streets in front of venues, for some this would most likely be their first gig in over a year and a half.
Before they could take the stage, Static Dress, who was also nominated for best UK Breakthrough took the stage. Frontman Olli brought a ton of energy to the stage which was quickly mirrored by the crowd building the energy and excitement in the room.
The energy only continued to build as Wargasm came on stage opening with one of their recent singles ‘Salma Hayek’. As the set continued there was an explosion of enthusiasm from the crowd, as lyrics were shouted back towards the stage. There was not a single moment where it felt like things were slowing down, and as the set drew to a close the energy didn’t die. Wargasm easily proved why they were awards Best UK Breakthrough and this night shows the quality of the new artists and music in UK alternative music.
