Lead singer Emil Goll conquered the stage with an extremely confident attitude – on the limit of being maybe a little bit too cocky at times – in a shiny gold jacket. And the remaining two members of the band followed troop with a contagious joy of playing that made the audience bounce to the smoothing beat from the opening act.
Not only is their music very un-danish but also their entire sound is so well produced that you sense their international professionalism. It’s easy to tell that the guys have spent some time in the states. Besides some minor flaws on the vocal in the beginning, the sound was perfect, professional and extremely smooth. The drummer knew his craft which he demonstrated up to several times during the concert
Emil Goll lacks a little on his vocal in the whole picture; not that it’s bad, not at all, but the bar is sat very high by the other members. On the slow numbers and low notes it gets too dull and whispering, but he demonstrates all its’ power and it definitely comes to its’ right on the high notes in their choruses, which they are very fond of using.
But what Emil might lack in his singing he makes up for by a brilliant performance as a party starter. He had us where he wanted us, made us sing along, dance and wave our hands, and he had our full attention from beginning to the very end.
The set list was very well put together with a good combination of up-tempo songs followed by more quiet songs, which gave the concert a good dynamic. Their hit song “Windy” in the middle as their 6th song made the crowd go crazy and they closed it off with their newest single “Under the palm trees” which made us go and hum the chorus after their show while we were dreaming ourselves away to California.
