STORMZY’s Øya Open concert in February sold out quickly before Christmas, which says a lot about the interest in this album-relevant artist. Now you have a new opportunity, as festival organisers are pleased to announce that he will return to Oslo and Øya festival on Saturday 15th August.
STORMZY made his big break with his debut album Gang Signs & Prayer in 2017, after working hard for several years. This was the first grim album to reach number one on the UK sales list. Now he is ready with the sequel Heavy is the Head, confirming his position as one of the UK’s most important artists.
The class struggle: – STORMZY’s appeal lies in the alluring analytical text universe crammed with references, but also in the soundscape’s variations between the hard and the soft. Always forward and choppy, but never stressful and fussy.
In 2019, he took new steps. He headlined Glastonbury and the single Vossi Bop took first place in the home country. The upcoming album also includes the hits Crown and Own It, the latter a collaboration with Ed Sheeran and Burna Boy. STORMZY is an artist who will make a mark this decade both through recordings and impressive concerts.
His set was historic, not just because he was the first British black male solo artist to ever headline the nation’s favorite music festival, but because he threw everything at it and then some. It was one of the most dynamically paced sets I have ever seen, from explosive opening to explosive finale, with all kinds of personal, political and emotional epiphanies occurring throughout.Independent newspaper about the Glastonbury concert
