Frank Ocean | A London Summer


Summer in London, Wireless festival. It was one of those unusual weeks where blue skies reigned, sun baked the concrete and the city shone.

Two hours early and with determination to push through the 
crowds, I got to the front barrier. 

I must admit I was anxious. When you listen to your favourite albums daily - on the tube, at home, in a contemplative mood, in a playful mood - you don’t want to be disappointed with the real artist in front of you. 

And I wasn’t. Frank Ocean’s music is cinematic. I’m transported to a feeling, a place, a time during a three minute song. Neon blue lights filtered from the stage as a video of a car driving endlessly through desert filled the stage background. The scene was set.

Frank’s voice and lyrics commanded the stage and his audience were entranced. ‘Pyramids’ was played in full, it’s raw rifts filling the tent, taking the crowd through 9 minutes of dark, sexy and thrilling musical narrative. 

'Acura integral' and 'Forrest Gump' reverberated through the dusty space; the crowd singing lyrics word for word. 

The hypnotic hour set concluded with ‘Sweet Life’, the perfect soundtrack to a hazy summer in London. One of the most memorable gigs I’ve experienced.
