Out Of The Blue (Out of the Blue)

By | Published on Saturday 24 August 2013

Oxford’s all-male a capella group Out of the Blue return to the Edinburgh Fringe for yet another year. For an hour they delight the audience with well-known songs, interspersed with charming chat and an obvious joy for the stage. Although lead vocals do occasionally falter, the harmonies and lively nature of the rest of the performance cannot be faulted. A particular highlight was their rendition of Swedish House Mafia’s ‘Don’t you worry child’, because it was so unexpected and a complete contrast to the original. It’s a student group, so the line-up of OOTB changes year on year, but this incarnation of the group certainly know how to have a good time without compromising on musical quality.

Assembly George Square, until 26 Aug (not 14), 2.00pm.
