Mackenzy Mackay — Live at Electric Ballroom (Review)

An electric night with Mackenzy Mackay at Electric Ballroom, Camden 

With a venue full of excited fans just after doors opening, Mackenzy Mackay’s much-anticipated sold out performance at Electric Ballroom was a captivating last dance for his sold out Life, Love & Upsets EP tour. Known for his raw and captivating lyrics, Mackay delivered an intimate show for his loyal and dedicated fans. 

Mackenzy Mackay entered the stage with a huge smile on his face and a lively crowd chanting his name to thunderous applause— opening with “Feelings on the Way” immediately capturing the crowd with an upbeat number to get the crowd jumping. Highlights from his EP, Life, Love & Upsets, included “Find it” which had the whole venue bobbing and swaying, and “Selfish”, with its evocative melody, people sung their hearts out. The encore, “London”, really brought the night to an ‘electric’ close.

The atmosphere was very chilled but filled with passion, with many couples attending together, creating an intimate and romantic vibe. Mackay’s musicianship shone throughout the performance. His melodic and modern flow paired well with his raspy voice that was refreshing and catchy. The driving rhythm of his songs made it impossible not to move with the flow, his guitar helped accompany him on multiple tracks throughout the performance. Fans were even lucky enough to hear him play a rendition of a brand new song where it was just him and his piano— both technically impressive and deeply emotive. 

Mackay demonstrated a genuine connection with his audience, sharing what every song meant to him and even highlighting some people in the crowd that certain songs were about, making for a personal and intimate experience for everyone.

Mackenzy Mackay’s live show at Electric Ballroom in Camden was a spectacular blend of emotional and vibrant songs paired with an interactive crowd of fans who I’m sure enjoyed every second of it.
