Norrköping. She already has the internet and several big hits on their side.
Now Zara Larsson also a live show that matches the objective.
on Bråvalla shows the pop star that she is ready for the next step.
As the old festivalräv it is easy to think that you’ve seen most of what we now.
However, see, a big circle pit during a slow pop ballad was something new.
in a way, I get it anyway guys (yes, it is almost only guys) bull rushing around in a circle when Zara Larsson wailar us .
Everyone reacts differently when you get to experience something good.
Zara Larsson’s career so far has gone along a brightly lit path. She has been singled out as our next big pop star for so long now that it’s hard to believe she is only eighteen. Despite the successes – most recently with both summer fotbollslåt with David Guetta’s own “Lush Life” – should any expectations reasonably be detected. The pressure to deliver big with second plate released this fall.
She says she does not tend to be nervous but slept badly before Bråvalla. Not that it shows when she lavish band with dancers showcasing how modern pop sounds in 2016.
What we hear from the upcoming album sounds brilliant. Both “Wanna” and especially “Funeral” already sounds like r’n’b dipped club managers. The scene is nicely structured with five monitors that complements both the dancers and the band. Larsson himself sings magnificently, you know this already. She feeds Bråvalla with a hand hits that other artists would give much for.
In many ways, she is there now as an artist , but it is clear that there are things to polish. Like a scene sometimes impersonal contact. As to say “Are you OK?” Five times and it sounds like listening to the response. In “She’s not me”, she sits instead on the edge of the stage and get closer to the audience in every way. And the breakthrough “Uncover” she goes down to the fans at the front and distributes high-fives. It may sound fussy, but there are requirements set for the very top.
“2016 has been my best year ever,” she says a bit under an hour’s very delicious pop show. And the year is not over yet.
