“Powerful, political and pertinent” THE INDEPENDENT
WILL VARLEY continues his silver-tongued serenading with the opening cut from his much-lauded third album Postcards From Ursa Minor.
‘As For My Soul’ sets out Will’s insight into modern malaise, and his solutions to getting by – “drink a beer, sing a song”. A slight shanty edge sifts this jauntier song across the centre of his musical spectrum, like a hungover morning with the promise of a brighter afternoon.
On Saturday night we had the pleasure of attending the Wortley Hotel on Rowland Road for a popular duo, who have performed prime time on Nick Grimshaw’s Radio One show live and across the festival & gig circuit. Prior to watching the Duo I had seen good feedback and comments from returning fans. I hadn’t heard of Showhawk before but they are selling out venues across the UK and beyond on their tour.
Firstly a support act from Hull graced the stage called Urban Rain they ran through a setlist of their own songs and threw in a few covers along the way, one being REM. They were a slightly different genre to the main act but nevertheless they were good musicians and the crowd enjoyed singing along.
Soon after Urban Rain left the stage the main act Showhawk Duo got ready to play. The two talented guitarists are named Mikhail Asanovic and Jake Wright and they use their electro acoustic guitars to produce a genre they call ADM which is similar to EDM (electronic dance music) but the sound and well-known songs are composed of just two acoustic guitars with a lot of tuning and slapping the strings and guitar itself to produce a whole new composition and feel.
Showhawk were no doubt, very talented at playing these dance/trance recreations with what they had. The Duo covered artists songs such as Alice Deejay, Faithless, Clean Bandit and of course their Daft Punk medley that I’d hear so much about. The Showhawk Duo finished the night with Bohemian Rhapsody, which definitely managed to get some audience members singing.
The duo don’t do vocals they leave that to the audience. Which was maybe somewhat lost on the Scunthorpe audience that night in comparison to some of the other gig videos i’d seen. Every song was familiar and easily recognisable. The crowd seemed to enjoy the show with a standing ovation and an encore. Overall it was great night of live music.
It just goes to show though that attending gigs of artists you might never otherwise have heard of can sometimes pay off and turn into a great night of live music.
