The Accidentals made their Fringe debut last year, performing at theSpace Cabaret @ 54 in a last-minute choice of venue that didn’t quite match their abilities as a group. On a crowded stage they were unable to unleash the fierce choreography that they are renowned for – although the sound they produced was unmistakably theirs, mixing mash-up after mash-up and sticking firmly to their hip-hop preferences.
Previous UACUK Ratings
2012: 8/10 – “Feisty, fierce and brimming with attitude.”
The girls have made the wise decision to perform at a venue more well-known for a cappella, theSpace @ Symposium Hall, where the likes of All the King’s Men, The Oxford Alternotives and, this year, Semi-Toned have performed. It’s a much more suitable venue and one which will enable to them to show off their unique and substantial talents. The girls sounded their usual feisty selves at the Voice Festival UK this year, and will be keen to show Edinburgh another side to themselves this year.
What To Expect
The girls have soloists to spare. With the return of year abroad absentees Ellies Mason and Kutylowski and stalwarts Anna McDonald, Grace Hardy, Vicki Robertson and Tessa Stokes (and that’s not an exhaustive list by any means), they will sound stronger than ever in that department. If you’re into hip-hop and RnB, these girls are the group for you – they are skilled at mashing-up two numbers and dropping a beat somewhere in the middle, and will undoubtedly pull out a rap or three throughout the show. Go and be entertained by the Accidentals. You will be.
