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.
