Luca Wu And Reverse Context

By | Published on Wednesday 26 August 2015

Reverse Context

Two pop/rock shows for the price of one? These very different singers performed for half the show each sharing the band. Luca Wu played piano competently but I couldn’t hear a word over the band, which was a pity because both artists write their own material and I was intrigued to hear the lyrics. I would rather the likeable guitarists had contributed more, such as backing vocals, instead of relying on computers. Reverse Context was energetic, audible, sang in front of the instrumentalists and used a wider musical vocabulary. However, I heard nothing that could be described as “experimental” – he did wear a fish mask for a song about the human race as fish swimming in an ocean, though. That perked me up.
