Review: This Must Be Pop Live ft. War of Words, Poppy & the Jezebels and EBRU

On Tuesday night This Must Be Pop Live returned to the Queen of Hoxton for another poptastic evening of live music, drinking and dancing! Here’s what went on…

The first performer of the night was up-and-coming R&B singer EBRU who totally wowed the audience with her voice and impressive stage presence. This girl definitely has star quality! She belted out some cool covers of Adele’s Someone Like You, The Beatles’ Eleanor Rigby and Swim Good by Frank Ocean, and she sang a selection of her own original songs too including her fantastic new single Mad.

Next up were indie-pop girl group Poppy and the Jezebels, who played a mixture of new and older tracks and even premiered some of their brand new material! My favourites were the catchy Momma’s Boy and the ace new single Sign In, Dream On, Drop Out. The track’s producer Richard X was even in the audience to see the song come to life. Everyone I chatted to was very impressed by the band’s musical skills, showing girls can play instruments just as well as boys!

The final performance came from girl duo War of Words, who got the crowd dancing to their fantastic R&B/electro-pop songs and gasping at their amazing vocals! They sang their singles Panic and Battleground, which were released a few months ago via the Popjustice Hi-Fi label, and four more songs that were just as good, impressing their existing fans and winning over new ones too. I can’t wait to get their album now!

The night culminated in some enthusiastic dancing to Jon‘s brilliant DJing. This Must Be Pop Live is the one place where Cher Lloyd album tracks go down as well as Katy Perry singles!

If you’re sad you missed it… so you should be! But you can make up for it by attending the next event, which will take place on July 24th at Queen of Hoxton (we’re having June off as a summer break). Click attending here to be the first to hear about the line-up.
