HELLO CONFUSION AT MARIE LAVEAU
This is a concert review of Hello Confusion at Marie Laveau.
Hello Confusion was formed 2008 in Stockholm by David Andersson (song), Daniel Hallström (drums), Jonas Svenningsson and David Andersson(bass)(Yes they have the same name...) and have grown a lot since then. They have played at various popular clubs and restaurants. P3 has also played their songs a few times.
It's in a small smokey concrete basement down below Marie Laveau where a decent amount of people have gathered, mostly family and friends. In fact, the singer even ran around saying hello to his nearest and dearest only ten minutes before the show.
The show begin and Hello Confusion open up with 'Celibrity Insanity' which is a quite dull song, not bad but not very remarkable either. Throughout the whole first fifteen minutes of the show I have the same feeling. The new songs just don't stick, they are not sharp enough.
Half way through the show turn in direction and move up in a positive melodic spiral and makes it interesting to listen again.
Suddenly the positive atmosphere gets paused by a ballad
After about one minute into the ballad the front figure David picks up a drumstick, cuts off the beat and starts on their top hit 'Everyone Is A Dancer'.
The crowd goes crazy
At the same time as the show turn in direction I recognize their sound. It's a bit of a 'Kings Of Leon' feeling mixed with Johnny Borrell's voice, the singer of the swedish-brittish band Razorlight.
I leave Marie Laveau glad to have come there that night. The band was good, but not brilliant. Either way I think we will hear more from Hello Confusion. They lie right in time for a break through and they are worth it.
Thank you Maria for the tip!
