Jordan and band were on a pretty even keel until halfway through “Better Than Nothing”, when they erupted into handclaps and harmonies. It was a brilliant moment.

Their energy rubbed off on me – I had to chuck the singer/songwriters format at the end and go for the highly charged Pretenders track.
