Concert reviews: English sylph Lucy Rose and Norwegian band Young Dreams ooze sunniness at Mosaic

Published on Mar 15, 2014 1:13 PM

One of my favourite things in life is to catch bands at the beginning of their careers – the frisson of unadulterated joy, that tingle of being there… those feelings are fleeting, and are seldom replicated.

I felt that as I imbibed two young acts at their Singapore debuts at the Mosaic Music Festival on Friday (March 14).
English indie-folk sylph Lucy Rose was exactly what her name would suggest: petite, abashed, and genuinely happy to be here.

She was bowled over by the sight of “buildings with boats on them” (Marine Bay Sands) and was awed to be at the intimate Esplanade Recital Studio (what she called “the poshest” place she’s ever performed in).

Hailing from Bergen, Norway, the six chaps in Young Dreams were chuffed, too. It was great to be at “Moh-sey-ic!”, one member squealed excitedly.
