Yesterday I went to Musikens Hus for the finals in the Emergenza Festival music competition. Ten bands were playing, and I was totally swept away by one of them.
Vacatierra rocked!! A bunch of kids from Kungälv who apparently have been winning a lot lately (see here and here). The music was impossible not to move to, energetic hip-hop-ish soul with elements of pretty much everything (including amazing backup vocals). And I have never seen such well synched stage behavior and audience contact at a rookie concert before. They are definitely on the road towards big-ness!
Now if you kids could put some music samples on your webpage, so people get what I am talking about!!
