Review: Paloma Faith, T in the Park

“As far as popstars go, Paloma Faith is in a league of her own”

As the hangovers intensified and the toilets became even worse than the one featured in the infamous Trainspotting scene, the onus fell to Paloma Faith to bring some welcome glamour to the final day of T in the Park.

Never one to disappoint, the quirky singer bounded onto the stage sporting a mini dress, towering stilettos and a glistening yellow cape, before launching headfirst into an uplifting, joyful sprint through some of her biggest hits.

Accompanied by a dapper backing band, Paloma fused funk and soul seamlessly, darted from one side of the stage of the other, danced chaotically atop a piano and endeared herself to the audience by coming across as genuinely funny and kind through her between song banter. Yet, as she powered through Only Love Can Hurt Like This, Picking Up the Pieces and Stone Cold Sober, proving herself to be one of the UK’s most talented female vocalists in the process, nothing could detract from the fact that, as far as pop stars go, Paloma Faith is in a league of her own.
