Clean Bandit, Years and Years and Rae Morris Perform at BBC Music Biggest Weekend
Clean Bandit, Years and Years and Rae Morris took to the stage at BBC Music Biggest Weekend. The event took place in Swansea and saw acts such as Taylor Swift, Florence and the Machine, Shawn Mendes, Camila Cabello, Ed Sheeran and Liam Gallagher.
The Independant said:
Without question the most transporting moments come from from Years & Years and Christine and the Queens. Their sets foreground queerness with muscular, erotic dancing – the former’s finds frontman Olly Alexander writhing against figures dressed as gimps and cyberpunks in a way that suggests he’s been studying Perfume Genius. During Desire’s liberationist dance-pop, the dancers peel away his jumpsuit and attach a silver cape to his front. A riser then propels him – and this vast cape that makes Meghan Markle’s train look like a napkin – 10 metres into the air while he sings Palo Santo. The fabric falls away to reveal a green, navel-skimming jumpsuit: Peter Pan crossed with Bowie. Payne’s warmed-over tropical house is a distant memory.
