VA ROCKS live @ Malmöfestivalen 18-8-2015
To be quit honest I hadn´t heard much from VA ROCKS before this
gig.Some friends had told me to listen to them once in a while. But
a really never had had the time to do so until the night before this
gig. The band released their new single/video, entitled “Bluesman”
that evening. After listening to it, I listened to some other songs
by the band and thought to myself
- I got to go see this band tomorrow !
And so I did. The location was Malmö City Festival at the Rock
Stage. A rather small tent stage with, I would guess, a capacity for
about 150 - 200 people.
The girls entered the stage and kicked us in the guts from the first
accord with their raw and dirty energetic Rock n Roll. It was an
awesome set with attitude and aggression in the music. This was
all that the music should be about having fun both on stage and in
the crowd. VA ROCKS are really good musicians and are really
tight as a unit.
The night before when I heard the group for the first time I was
totally blown away by the singer, Ida´s voice. She has so much
depth and power in her voice that it´s really hard to describe.
Actually I was afraid that it wouldn´t hold in a live performance.
I seen and heard that so many times before. But from the first note
she took she once again blew me away.
Ida´s voice is just amazing and accompanied by Frida´s furious
drumming and Klara´s laid back bass it makes an incredible trio.
And even if Frida handles the lead vocals from time to time. It is
Ida that is the center of attention with her energy and voice.
I honestly haven´t got this much goosebumps at a concert in many
If I should have to say a downside to the show it would have to be
that 40 min wasn´t nearly enough.
So keep the name VA ROCKS in mind and go see them if you get
