Neurovision (Eccentronic / Free Festival)

By | Published on Wednesday 21 August 2013

Visually, ‘Neurovision’ makes me feel like a happy magpie with their sparkly purple and gold outfits; aurally, it’s a mess of electronic and not necessarily pleasant sounds. Whilst I do appreciate being in the same room as the third best theramin player in the UK, I can’t say I appreciate the musical quality of their songs. And their dancing, it’s so bad, it’s almost good. Callaghan’s flappable dad-dancing is certainly amusing and Miss Hypnotique makes me think of a lanky male youth in heels. Regardless of how good or terrible their show is, the Eccentronic duo seem to be enjoying themselves. Their energy is infectious and I had to laugh once the ridiculousness became too much.

Laughing Horse @ The Free Sisters, until 25 Aug (not 19), 7.30pm.
