Tantric Shuffle Live by Louise Love

Dear Poptastic Readers,

Last month we highlighted the new song "Get Back" by Louise Love and it got a lot of attention. We even had someone volunteer to write a review of her live show. That someone is Naomi! And without delay, here is her review!

Cheers then,

A review of Louise Love’s Tantric Shuffle Brisbane show

By Naomi Arnold

Each year, I like to set myself a little challenge. In 2014 and 2015, I committed to making every single decision from my heart as opposed to my usual head-based tactics. In 2016, I plan to curiously learn, create and soak up new experiences. Enter Louise Love and the electronic pop world.

I still remember the first time I listened to Louise’s last album First Day. I was hooked. Having never experienced electronic pop, I felt my musical horizons expanding. A new appreciation for musicians, creativity, wonder and awe opened within me.

When Louise announced the launch of her new EP Tantric Shuffle, I purchased a copy straight away. And yet again, I was hooked. In the lead up to her national tour, I found myself bobbing at my standing desk each day as I worked and listened to her songs on repeat.

Before I knew it, I’d booked plane tickets to Brisbane to witness her gifts in person at her Queensland show for the Tantric Shuffle launch. I also reached out and asked if I could interview her for my own blog on all things creativity, music, inspiration, writing, self care and more. A Louise Love super fan had been born.

Upon arriving at The Bearded Lady on Sunday night for the show, my husband and I were excited but nervous. Both being shy introverts from a quiet small town, the city and pub life were a rare occurrence for us — but we were there ready to soak up a new experience.

As soon as we walked into the room, we were greeted with a big smile by Louise Love herself and her supporting act S>c>r>a>p>s before eagerly taking a seat in the front row and waiting for the show to begin.

Louise blew us away. She looked stunning in her gold outfit and black head piece, surrounded by lights, with a captivating video backdrop. Her vocals were powerful, beautiful and moving. Her beats a mind-blowing experience for the ears and heart. And she was clearly a performer, dancing while she sung and infusing her personality and humour between songs.

As non-dancers, we are usually the ‘boring’ couple sitting in the corner quietly appreciating the music — but even we couldn’t sit still and found ourselves bobbing and moving in our seats while people danced and moved with the music in front of us. It was an incredible night, and totally worth the 4 am rise the following morning to catch our return flight home.

If you missed out on seeing Louise Love live, I HIGHLY recommend that you get your hands on a copy of her EP Tantric Shuffle and previous album First Day for as little as $5 each. I am willing to bet that you too will be bobbing away upon hearing the tunes!
