Dua Lipa: Tiny Desk (Home) Concert

127 305 Դիտումներ 13մլն

The Tiny Desk is working from home for the foreseeable future. Introducing NPR Music's Tiny Desk (home) concerts, bringing you performances from across the country and the world. It's the same spirit - stripped-down sets, an intimate setting - just a different space.
Dec. 4, 2020 | Abby O'Neill -- With a genuine smile stretched across her face, Dua Lipa seems overjoyed to reconnect with her band for their only performance since their tour in support of her sophomore album, Future Nostalgia, was cancelled in March. Glowing from the inside out and accentuated by the apricot hues of a backdrop in a London studio, Dua and her backup vocalists and band bring life and warmth into households in need of "levitating" and some pep in their step this winter. This vibrant four song set of dance hits, all from Future Nostalgia, will surely have you cutting up the floor in your kitchen while quarantining in the cold weather.
While we can't film our Tiny Desk concerts at NPR's D.C. office during the pandemic, our "home" series has created opportunity for global megastars like Dua Lipa to bring her uptempo dance joints all the way from London. Of Kosovar Albanian descent, Dua Lipa was raised in the UK and rose to super stardom in the three years since her eponymous debut album dropped in 2017. NPR Music featured her in our docu-series Noteworthy at the onset of her career. It's been extraordinary to witness her colossal takeover of the pop music landscape. Dua sums the times during her intro of "Love Again": "It's about manifesting good things into your life, when things aren't quite going your way."

    Can we take the time to appreciate the set design here? Look at the carpet - The Shining? The colors - Clockwork Orange? The entire work, actually: colors, wardrobe, highlights, low lights. And mygod the shadow on Dua Lipa made her come off as a MASTERPIECE. This is a great study for design!

    I bloody love Dua, but if the arrangements require in-ear monitors, it ain't a Tiny Desk. Get rid of the backup singers, get rid of the click track, put in a live drummer with a deep pocket and some improv instrumentals. That's what I'm here for. I can listen to the album anytime, I don't need lesser version of those tracks. None of these musicians sound or look as though they're listening to each other and Dua looks straight up lonely.

      Take it back! You take it back right now! The tiny desk will live on forever, just you watch! On a personal note, I'd have actually preferred this to be behind the tiny desk rather than wherever they are in this video. There's nothing wrong with this, by any means, but it gives the illusion of production trickery whether any was used or not. At least if they are actually in the office and behind the tiny desk (is it really that tiny?) we know that it is legit and they are for real. By the way, I'm not trying to speak ill of Dua Lipa, I actually like her a lot and this might be my favorite performance from her!
