There’s a wild beauty in the voice of Alice Merton that has led to favourable comparisons with all manner of ‘force of nature’ female vocalists in recent times. If you thought, possibly from being stuck in some infernal commercial radio loop at work, that pop was on its arse, struggling under the burden of having to appeal financially to the lowest common denominator, then artists like Alice Merton give us hope. With style and substance, she took the audience at Thekla through the full gamut of emotions, but left them smiling. Jessica Bartolini captured this photoset.
