Gig Preview: Double Denim Records @ Royal Albert Hall

Maria Minerva

Spectacular leftfield record label Double Denim take over the Elgar Room in The Royal Albert Hall, for a stunning night of electro soul and hazy psychedelia, from three cutting-edge artists topping 2012’s Ones to Watch lists, including our own.

Estonian post-punk disco chanteuse, Maria Minerva headlines the night along with Liverpudlian gloom-funk disco-janglers Outfit, and Londonist’s Ones to Watch NZCA/Lines. It will be a night of ethereal  DIY and pounding sophistication which perfectly encompasses 2012's musical obsession of digitised analogue chic.

Although this Double Denim curated night is as far from the Proms as you can get, the Elagr room’s elegance is a fitting setting for the unique musical craftsmanship oozing from all three acts. Minerva’s voice alone is worthy of a royal box, but supported by NZCA/Lines’ precision synth beats and Outfit’s perfect melodicism, we have a night of rare excellence.

At only £7.50 it’s a great chance to see cutting-edge music in London’s most iconic venue, and in the Elgar Room you can actually get to see them on stage without opera glasses. Bonus.

Double Denim and Hush at The Royal Albert Hall’s Elgar Room, Wednesday 22 February £7.50 + bf.
