It’s a marked change from Doyle’s usual production and he put down the midi-controller to take to a piano and give a taste of humble pie to anyone who believes producers don’t have musicality in their bones.
Doyle gave the assembled crowd a taste of his recent album Culture of Volume with the track ‘Don’t Look Backwards’, which was released on XL Recordings.
Doyle said of the set “Hopefully the songs are strong enough that they don’t need all the production all the time to succeed. That’s sort of the idea of what I do anyway – that if you strip back all the stuff at least there’ll be some semblance of a half-decent song. That’s what I was trying to put a spotlight on.”
