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.
