Coachella 2014: Solange Knowles Covers Kate Bush And Dances With Beyonce

df95632597d20d79d01935ef4285d777 Coachella 2014: Solange Knowles Covers Kate Bush And Dances With Beyonce

Solange Knowles delivered one of the best sets of Coachella 2014 and all anyone can talk about is Beyonce crashing the stage during the finale. Yes, it was adorable. Of course, it was a moment. Obviously, I started crying and shaking. But the fact remains that Bey’s baby sister is a brilliant performer in her own right and already had the Gobi tent punters eating out of the palm of her pretty hand.

From the moment the 27-year-old hit the stage rocking a giant afro and bright orange ensemble, there was no doubt that Solange was going to inject some soul into the festival. She posed and preened like a ’70s pin-up girl while belting out True highlights “Don’t Let Me Down” and “Some Things Never Seem To Fucking Work” before demanding the crowd grind along to “Bad Girls”. The alt-R&B darling didn’t have to ask twice.

Once the ratchetivity had been raised to boiling point, Sol-Angel suggested that now was as good a time as any to blaze (hey, it’s California) and delivered a raucous rendition of 2009 single “T.O.N.Y.”. It was a surprising addition to the setlist (the focus was on new material) but nowhere near as unexpected as her heartfelt dedication to Kate Bush — she called her a genius, among other compliments — and subsequent cover of the English diva’s seminal 1985 hit “Cloudbusting”.

Solange transformed the song into a dark and dreamy synth-anthem and quipped that she hoped her boyfriend would take the hint and buy her tickets to one of Kate’s upcoming London shows. From there, the tempo lifted with “Lovers In The Parking Lot” and retro-soul adventure “Sandcastle Disco”. That left “Losing You” to finish the show and Beyonce made sure it ended with a bang by joining her little sister on stage. It was a magical moment in a set jam-packed with them.
