A few weeks ago I ducked out for the first time in what seems like forever to take in a rare treat: the first and only UK show of Swedish pop sensation Vanbot at Hoxton Square Bar & Kitchen with MAMA Presents. It takes a lot to drag me out in the evenings these days but I was not alone in being eager to see Ester Ideskog perform live, and the small venue soon filled up. Vanbot was resplendent in a puffy pale pink hooded dress over bare legs with hair scraped back, silhouetted against bursts of purple and pink neon. For the brief half hour set she poured pure passion into tunes from new album Perfect Storm, deftly combining her sweetly yearning vocals with a rich electronic soundscape.
