Australian band Belle Roscoe took to the stage at The Troubadour on Wednesday 20th for a headlining slot as part of their big UK promotional tour for their new EP.
I came across this band after a friend recommended to me that I check them out after seeing them play at Soundwave festival in Melbourne earlier in the year. When I heard that they were coming to the UK I definitely wanted to check them out for myself and I was not disappointed!
The performance was at the legendary Troubadour in the heart of London and was set alight with a packed crowd to see the show. You wouldn’t have believed that this was Matty & Julia’s first UK promotional tour as it felt more like a homecoming gig with the venue being sold out and packed to the rafters with London Aussies coming to support the Melbourne based Duo.
The duo has been honing their talent over the last few years, racking up some fantastic performances at Cannes film Festival, Soundwave and even worked with Yves Saint Laurent at events. The band have already built up a big following in Europe, especially in France after the band spent a lot of time writing and producing the EP there.
Belle Roscoe was the headline performance of the night and although they didn’t come on until around 10.30 the crowd were pumped and eager for them. Although being relatively unknown with new material, the audience were behind them from the very start and were absolutely captivated by the very talented and stylish pair. One of my favourite moments from the night was when the band performed ‘Gun to My Head’ which is the perfect song to show off their vocal harmonies which come across so effortlessly and really shows off their sibling bond and how close they are, almost as if they are bouncing off each other on stage.
Other highlight songs from the night for me were Mary Mary (personal favourite) and Side Stepping which had the crowd on their feet.
Was definitely worth the late night and heavy head the morning after, this a band to keep an eye out for in 2015 / 2016
