The first day of Amsterdam’s renowned London Calling saw highlights in two acts whose musical outlooks couldn’t be further removed from one another: dark post-punkers Husky Loops and rowdy indie pop sensation Yungblud. Both acts formed out part of an exciting first of two festival days, which further featured Melkbelly, Velvet Volume, City Calm Down and a handful more. Susana Martins went down to check it out.
