SXSW Review: Self Esteem, March 18, Cheer Up Charlie’s


Self Esteem, aka Rebecca Lucy Taylor, presented a tour de force show on Friday at Cheer Up Charlies. Sometimes you just need good pop fun and that’s exactly what Self Esteem brought. Accompanied by a live band and two dancers, Self Esteem quickly declared herself as an act to pay attention to from the get-go, as she and her dancers took to the stage in a surprisingly dramatic fashion.

The next fifty minutes saw Self Esteem play tracks off her 2021 critically acclaimed record Prioritise Pleasure, an album filled with uplifting pop bangers while engaging in fun choreographed dancing with her dancers and all in front of a fan that made everything more intense. I had never heard Self Esteem before this, but I was instantly transformed into a fan.

I, for one, cannot get enough of her track “I Do This All The Time.” Highly recommended.
