The Twoks

By | Published on Tuesday 16 August 2011

This musical duo is a delight to watch. The rich, layered sound that was produced by only an electric violin and drum kit was stunning: I sat transfixed through the hour-long set as Aussie’s Xani Kolac and Mark Leahy showcased their musical genius. Highlights included an improvised song that culminated in an explosion of melodic and tuneful sound, and had me mesmerised from start to finish. The passion that Kolac showed for her work was palpable, and the only downfall of the evening was that this did not rub off on the audience unanimously – some were asleep, others sat woodenly in their seats. For a better atmosphere, their venues need to be fuller, so please go and see this show.

Assembly George Square, 8 – 10, 15 – 17, 22 Aug, 10.30pm (11.40pm), £8.00 – £10.00, fpp222.
