Introduced to the stage by Radio 1 DJ Jen Long, the Virginia band treated the sheltering hoards in the Far Out Tent to dreamy renditions of tracks from their debut album 'Gemini'.

Before launching into 'Confirmation', frontman Jack Tatum revealed: “This is our first time in Wales, it's gorgeous!” That despite a steady deluge outside threatening to dampen the previously dry festival.

Later, the group played fan favourite 'Live In Dreams' and other eighties influenced alt-pop numbers, and gained a few new fans from passers-by trying to escape the downpour.

Tatum also suggested festival-goers watch Destroyer, who headline the Far Out Tent tonight, hailing the Canadian outfit as “one of my favourite bands”.

Later in the evening, Fleet Foxes will top the main stage, while a Warp Records curated night featuring Squarepusher, Chris Clark and Darkstar looks set to keep fans in the Far Out Tent dancing well into the wee small hours.
