I must say that I was actually quite shocked when I entered the Waterfront Studios for the fourth installment of MTV Sessions featuring Spanish indie darling Russian Red. It was totally packed and there was barely enough standing room. If I was 5 minutes later, I wouldn’t have been able to get into the place!
Russian Red actually flew into Singapore about 12 hours before the taping of MTV Sessions. Poor girl must be so tired! Still, exhaustion didn’t stop Russian Red from sounding awesome. 🙂
The crowd was actually kinda quiet and subdued. Must have been the average age in the room. Lol.
It’s okay to cheer loudly and shout your messages of love to the artist between songs people. You won’t ruin the recording, the worst case scenario is that you’ll be edited out (most of the pauses between songs are cut out anyway so go ahead and make some noise people). Just don’t shout something inappropriate during the songs; that’s when you are actually ruining the recording and they’ll have to do a retake.
Anyway, here is Russian Red’s set list:
- I Hate You But I Love You
- Everyday Everynight
- The Sun The Trees
- Girls Just Wanna Have Fun (cover)
- Conquer The World
- Loving Strangers
- We Will Rock You (cover)
- Braver Soldier
- January 14th
MTV Sessions with Russian Red premieres on MTV Asia on 20 October 2012, 11 am (WIB), noon (SG/HK/PH), 1 pm (MAL).
