I should really impose a rule to only see a particular artist a MAXIMUM of twice a year.
Do I really need to give an introduction for Tom Misch? Regular readers must tired of seeing his name all over this site. I swear to tone it down a few notches for next year.
Less focus on Tom. More focus on the equally talented line up Barney Artist, Alfa Mist and Jordan Rakei.
Are We Live is a podcast by this awesome foursome just “having a chat about music”.
I was uber excited to go as I just became vitual besties with Barney as well as a chance seeing Alfa & Jordan (after missing out on his Pizza Express Live gig) performing live for the first time . It would be technically the seventh/eighth time seeing Tom this year.
It was four birds with one stone. What more could I ask for?
Well… a concert companion could be one. I went in alone with another ticket swimming on my DICE account. But nothing was stopping me from seeing these amazing guys to showcase their talent.
Their chemistry and friendship was abundantly clear through out the entire night. They are not only a collective of artists. They are a family.
Of course another member of this family would be due to hop on stage after releasing an outstanding soulful gem Ottolenghi with Jordan just two months prior.
Loyle Carner joins his brothers bringing in his smooth lyrical flow.
The night started off with ‘wedding reception vibe’ from Barney the hype man before transitioning to the hypnotic mostly instrumental set by Alfa. Tom comes in with his funky fusions then the night ends with Jordan for a satisfying serene conclusion.
Bringing their unique character and sound that blends, flows and interweaves into each others sets. It was a great night of musical mastery.
Until Next Time,
~These guys are my squad goals~
~MIGHT have to start my own podcast~
