REVIEW: NUSSY EP LAUNCHTHE WORKERS CLUB, FITZROY, MELBOURNE (31/7/14)

If you have ever had the idea of going to a venue with the objective of discovering a new artist, this is it!

It was a perfect end to the day and an escape from the ‘lovely’ winter weather.

The night began with opening act Rachel Costanzo who graced us with a mixture of originals and covers, including a piano version of her latest single, ‘Starlight.’ (watch here)

Maxi was on next as her infectious vibe saw everybody dancing and singing along, bringing the excitement to the next level. Her indie-pop character is also a prominent feature as her set list saw a collection of hits, old and new, with ‘Walking With the Animals,’ being the latest. (watch here)

Then on came the fairy lights and the wait was over as Nussy made her grand entrance on stage while the SOLD OUT crowd welcomed her with huge applause.

‘Dizzy’, the second track on her self-titled EP brought more cheers as confetti balls were thrown from the stage into the crowd. With the band members jamming along to the beat of the drum, it was clear that all members on the stage were having fun. As the show went on, we were dancing along to the futuristic synth melodies as the third track on her EP, ‘Prowling’ saw some fiery solos and the final track, ‘The Other Side’ was a nice break in the setlist as it was relaxing with inspiring lyrics.

To this day, I am still left hearing “D-d-d-dizzy baby,” on repeat in my head! I am so glad I attended. Discovering artists at a live venue is the best thing anyone can do because you are surrounded by so much energy and you are engulfed in the singer’s emotions which makes their music more meaningful. I was left in awe and had to purchase a CD.

The EP ‘Nussy’ was released on July 18 after her debut single ‘Dizzy,’ was released on July 4. It is said that the EP is based on the challenges and pressures that young adults may be faced at some point. (buy single here)

Nussy’s second launch show was in Adelaide on August 1 at Pirie and Co Social Club.

If you are looking for some fresh music to add to your ‘Recently Added’ playlist, you have found it.

This artist is going to be big!
