From a grand entrance to an intimate acoustic set, our NOTION 95 cover star Remi Wolf blew the roof of the south London venue.

Remi Wolf is having quite the 2024: heading off on the UK and European GUTS tour with Olivia Rodrigo and gracing the cover of our 95th issue, she’s next dropping her sophomore album, Big Ideas, in July. On top of supporting Olivia at her debut UK arena shows in The O2, Remi also took to the stage at London’s Electric Brixton for her first headline show in over two years.


Popping up out of the audience in a box and aptly opening with ‘Just The Start’, Remi took her enthralled audience on a wild ride through previous eras and playful covers galore. As she told us in her cover story interview when talking about what to anticipate from her 2024 shows, Remi said “Expect a lot of energy, a lot of fun, a lot of body bending, a lot of belting, a lot of drums, a lot of tights and maybe some leotards. Old music, new music, maybe a cover here and there. It’ll be a little mini variety show…I just want to make people as hyped as possible, so that when she goes on everyone is ready to really get down.”

Hailing from Palo Alto, the rising star is unafraid to be unapologetically herself, making “funky soul pop” that is guaranteed to boost your mood, and her live performance is no different. From the cowboy hat atop her head to the stomping boots, Remi Wolf has a stage presence far beyond her 28 years and is definitely a name to know.


From fan favourites ‘Sexy Villain’ and ‘Liz’ to new earworm singles ‘Toro’ and ‘Cinderella’, Remi captivated the vibey audience with ease, taking them through upbeat dancefloor fillers through to three raw acoustic songs. On top of her own must-listen discography, the artist covered The Zutons’ Valerie’ – doing absolute justice to the iconic Amy Winehouse version – as well as as a tongue-in-cheek ode to Shaggy with ‘It Wasn’t Me’.

As we write in the issue: A variety show is definitely a perfect descriptor for anything Remi Wolf: whether running around on stage in coloured tights and leotards or dancing down the street in music videos, both her performances and her vibe are pure organised chaos, drawing her audience deep into her weird and wonderful world. It’s Aquarius energy through and through: airy, whimsical, expressive, free and full of zest for life. “What I know that I love is dancing, I love moving my body and I think luckily I can do it on camera and I can do it on stage. Obviously, I’m obsessed with colour, I love saturated colours. I love music videos that give you this feeling of escapism or just unadulterated and unhinged joy. I’ve leaned heavily into those feelings when I make music videos and what feels the most authentic to me – which is what I think creates this world – is that I allow myself to play, I allow myself to have fun.”
