Isobel Rogers, a guitar and an evocative acoustic feel – it’s like a chilled-out coffee shop performance. Elsa actually is a barista, a waif-like character that passes through life and picks up on the gossip of her customers as she takes their orders and eavesdrops on their first world problems. Like her, Rogers has a quiet confidence – humble and softly spoken, instantly endearing. But this is a talented performer with a concrete grasp of rhythm and metre, a singer who puts a lens to a story and transforms its normality into an extraordinarily spun web of wonder. Elsa is the plain-speaking alter ego, delivering a set that overflows with passionate passive-aggression.
