The View

Kyle rubs his eyes. Somebody must have woken up The View’s lead singer literally only a few minutes before our 12 a.m. meeting in Hamburg’s Schanzenviertel, which is hardly surprising since the band has spent most of the night on the road coming from Brussels, where they played the previous evening. It is also too early for the skaters that usually do their tricks and jumps in the skate park behind Rote Flora cultural center in the afternoons and evening, so we have the place for ourselves. Kyle takes a seat on his guitar case in the center of the halfpipe and starts strumming “Face For The Radio”, a classic single from the Scots 2007 debut album “Hats Off to the Buskers”. Some youngsters, who were hanging out in the park, come closer and do dance moves in the background, while Kyle treats us with a beautifully intimate performance – showing no signs of tiredness anymore, at least until the last chord is played.
