Connie Constance performing at Oslo Hackney, London, on September 28, 2021.
Rising indie pop singer Connie Constance enjoys going her own way. She played a colourful show, at Oslo Hackney on Tuesday night, and gave the audience a taste of her rebellious energy.
She greeted the audience by bounding onto the stage to the sound of ‘Electric Girl’. Constance was having a good night, smiling as brightly as her elaborate orange outfit.
Her hour-long set was composed of songs from her EPs, Prim & Propa and The Butterfly Club, and her flair for juxtaposing the familiar with the surreal (‘Costa del Margate’) and her matter-of-fact lyrics about love and desire (‘Monty Python’) were heartily embraced by the audience.
She got the whole audience crouching down and jumping up during the resolute ‘Prim & Propa’. She fearlessly did some impromptu crowdsurfing on her unruly hit ‘Trouble’. And she’s invited fellow London wordsmith Hak Baker on stage to perform a boisterous new song, ‘Top of the Pop’.
This is music for the misunderstood and the mischievous: a guitar-fuelled, raucous, unapologetic collision of street spirit, big dreams and alternative girl power. The pandemic certainly doesn’t seem to have slowed down Constance’s resolve: her songs and her show left us feeling a little richer and a lot wilder.
Connie Constance’s Prim & Prompa tour continues through the autumn. See Songkick for tickets.
