One of the youngest and most exciting British bands made a stop at Birmingham’s o2 Institute this past week, the penultimate performance before a headline show in Koko, London. Liverpool’s’ own MiC Lowry impressed and serenaded a young and anticipating crowd with their 5 harmonic voices.
Fresh off a tour supporting none other than Justin Beiber, whom they joined on the European leg of his worldwide Purpose Tour, which included 6 sell-out nights in London, MiC Lowry opened up with a melodic piece inspired by Whitney Houston’s classic, Saving All My Love. Before swinging into Bad Intentions, from their 2015 EP, The Show.
MiC Lowry are constantly gathering critical acclaim following the success of their debut EP, which went straight to the No. 1 spot on the UK iTunes Official RnB Chart. However, their successes are following them, with a recent BET nomination for “Best International Newcomer” as well as being labeled “the next big thing to come out of the UK” by BBC Radio 1xtra.
The band treated fans to a few more beautifully pieced covers, including a spiritedly received Lauryn Hill’s, That Thing, before moving into their newly released pieces of work, including their newly released, Oh Lord.
Their new single, ‘Oh Lord’ blends their five part harmonies and signature vocals with a distinct sample of the legendary Phil Collins’ classic ‘In The Air Tonight’.
The track was streamed by over 2 million people on Spotify in just over 2 week and has been play-listed across some of the most influential Spotfiy & Digster playlists as well as breaking into the worldwide viral charts at #7.
