4 / 6 stjerner
      

Billow er en gruppe bestående af 7 unge mennesker, alle med en forkærlighed for soul, r’n’b og hip hop – og det skinner i den grad igennem i deres optræden. Det københavnske band med Bashir Billow Khalid som frontfigur har eksisteret i lidt over 2 år og har bl.a. været på Newbees Festival i 2010. Bandet har netop udgivet deres nye single “Mental Picture” med dertilhørende musikvideo og på kun 2 uger er videoen ved at runde de 10.000 views.

Selvom Nørrebro Bryghus er et forholdsvist småt spillested kompenserer caféen og restauranten med hyggelig stemning og velsmagende øl – og selvfølgelig også god musik. 7 mand stærk stillede Billow op til bandets første koncert i år og indledte til publikums store begejstring med sangen “Live it Up”. Blandingen af Bashirs hurtige og hårdtslående rap og medsangerinden Rezwan Farmis bløde soulstemme klingede harmonisk sammen og med ét var stemningen sat. Bandet havde i dagens anledning fået Sebastian Rønde Thielke med på scratch, hvilket tilførte den ellers klassiske opstilling med trommer, bas, guitar og keyboard en funky kant.
Det var tydeligt at høre, at Billows inspiration er hentet fra store funk- og soullegender såsom Mos Def, Lauryn Hill og Marvin Gaye, men stadig skinnede bandets helt personlige stil i gennem. Med numre som “Under the Skies” og den nyudsendte single “Mental Picture” er der ingen tvivl om, at Billow er sin egen og i særdeleshed et friskt pust på den soul og r’n’b-mindede musikscene i Danmark. De godt hundrede fremmødte var da også begejstrede, unge som ældre, og jo længere ind i koncerten vi kom, jo mere løsslupne blev publikum.

Koncerten bød overordnet set på lidt af hvert – der var samples og rap, der stemte overens med bandets hiphoppede ånd, der var lækre beats og poppede synths blandet med guitar riffs og flere instrumentale soloer, der også bragte live-elementet i spil. Hvad end det gjaldt de inderlige og stille ballader eller de mere upbeat numre blev vokalen meget kompetent fremført af Bashir Billow flot akkompagneret af sin yndige medsangerinde Rezwan Farmi. Også gæsteoptræderen Peacefull James gjorde et solidt stykke arbejde, da han på sidste nummer “Call On Me” spyttede rim ud i så urimeligt et hurtigt flow, at det krævede publikums fulde opmærksomhed. De fire stjerner gives for en rigtig feel good-oplevelse med spændende, frisk musik, der efter alt at dømme kan nå rigtig langt på den danske, såvel som udenlandske, soulpoppede musikscene.

– Live it Up
