Review: MØ AND DUCKWRTH @ 256 WICKHAM
With Groovin The Moo wrapping up over the past few weeks, DUCKWRTH and Mø brought a taste of the festival to Brisbane with a stellar sideshow at The Valley’s 256 Wickham.
Opening the evening was Los Angeles’ DUCKWRTH. His powerful opening proved the rapper to be one to watch, and has us hoping to see him on our shores again shortly.
Mø’s set was simply electrifying. The Danish singer-songwriter proved to be an enigmatic performer by all means. On the night, word in particular came to mind, ‘enchanting’. While it wasn’t a bells and whistles kind of show, Mø was nothing short of mesmerising.
Donning a larger-than-life onstage presence, the singer’s performance brought classic showmanship and contemporary style together, creating something truly magical.
The venue’s smaller stage did nothing to restrict Mø, who made the most of a more intimate venue.
As she made her way through the crowd, to the mid-venue sound desk, Mø made it clear she was there to perform for each and every member of her audience, from the up-close-and-personal punters to those packing out the Valley venue’s top floor.
The vocalist’s unique tone has seen her collaborate with musical heavyweights like Major Lazer, DJ Snake, and more recently Foster The People, and her vocal strength extends from the studio to the stage. Being able to witness that strength live in person was clearly a pleasure for her Brisbane crowd, who echoed back her energy throughout the night, but with the most impressive force during her most notable international hits like ‘Final Song’, ‘Nights With You’ and ‘Blur’.
To put it simply, Mø and DUCKWRTH‘s night in Brisbane helped us feel a little more in the loop with the Groovin the Moo tour and we’re incredibly thankful for it.
