Sporting a velvet coat and black mesh costume, she effortlessly glides into ‘Bloomed Into Blue,’ softly singing “As a babbling child / they blessed her a bastard delivery” whereas the group gently sways alongside.
Hawke’s trance-like voice booms by means of the venue as she dives into the subsequent few songs. Each has an analogous melody and supply as they movement into one another.

She walks off stage and the booming chants of her identify convey her, her band and Jesse Harris again for an encore. They play Hawke’s first-ever single ‘To Love A Boy’ and the room is screaming the music again to her. To wrap up the homecoming present, a canopy of Florida Georgia Line’s ‘Grime’ is sung after Hawke’s apology for deciding to finish on “a music it’s possible you’ll hate however we like to play.” Pink furry cowboy hat on, she has a blast on stage tearing it up earlier than heading again into town she calls house.
