As we all know, COVID was invented to stop people from enjoying live music, but now Two Hearts are here to help us recover from two years of silence. One thing they can’t fix? “Everybody’s less hot than they were before”, and that’s just something we’re going to have to live with.

Super catchy and sexually confusing

Two Hearts, made up of Laura Daniel and Joseph Moore, use their music to talk about the important issues facing women: the gender pay gap, not being able to afford a therapist, and the real fear that one day an evil witch will try to steal our voices, just like in The Little Mermaid.

The show soundtrack is super catchy and sexually confusing. Fuck Me In The Metaverse is impressively horrifying, I Love My Landlord is depressingly relatable, but Tummy Rosé is a personal favourite, and particularly enjoyable for those of us who know nothing about wine. The choreography is a high point throughout, with the bag hag dancers putting on a fantastic performance — but no one can match Laura’s confidence levels.

Laura has more costume changes than a Lady Gaga concert, with each bedazzled ‘fit appearing more fabulous than the next. Her frequent dramatic stage exits leave us in the capable hands of Joseph, who wants the women of the world to know he will fix gender equality by paying for our meals. That sounds bad out of context but it is a very inspiring song.

The jokes in between sets didn’t always land, but the high-energy hip hop songs, super saucy lyrics and smooth moves more than made up for it. And it helps that Laura and Joseph are so damn talented and likeable.

Two Hearts: We're Pregnant and the Baby is Music is such a fun, loud, chaotic musical experience, and there’s only a few more days to go enjoy it before the Fringe ends and we inevitably get swallowed up by the great Pacific garbage patch! You’ll understand when you see the show.

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Theatre MAD
The Make A Difference Trust fights HIV & AIDS one stage at a time. Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.
