At last night's richly indulgent show for The Last Shadow Puppets, the evening began with a moody mosaic of rhythmic funk, R&B, and 70s dance tunes. But the beautiful, dreamy opening act, Alexandra Savior, erased all of that as soon as she sashayed onstage in a pale pink dress. Alexandra sang of love and Hollywood problems with a nonchalance knowing, her voice sweet and sultry, sometimes reminiscent of Lana del Rey, sometimes not. It's a lo-fi sound that relies heavily on mood and Alexandra drenches the stage with a bucket of it. The feeling? It's the sonic equivalent of "Put a red scarf over the lamp shade. It's gonna be a night to remember."
In short, she did exactly what a good opener should do: set the right mood for the main attraction, but only serve a sample and leave the audience craving more.
