3 Local Artists to Catch at Norwich Sound & Vision
Norwich Sound and Vision Festival prides itself on supporting upcoming and emerging talent, both on a national and local scale. The festival has seen some now mega-artists play smaller Norwich venues before they hit the big time; artists like George Ezra, Drenge and Royal Blood, who secured their record deal after playing at Norwich pub Hog In Armour (now The Mash Tun) in 2013. Despite this, every year the festival works hard to showcase local emerging talent, and this year the lineup is packed with exciting local bands; here’s three you should check out across the festival:
Sink Ya Teeth
Fresh off the back of their appearance at Manchester’s Neighbourhood festival last weekend, Norwich duo Sink Ya Teeth return to home turf to play the first set of the festival. Offering the most dancey electro-synth vibes of any act on the lineup, they have fans in the likes BBC Radio 6 Music, with their latest track ‘Glass’ debuted on Steve Lamacq’s show.
Gaffa Tape Sandy
Bury St. Edmunds trio Gaffa Tape Sandy’s garage punk sounds have seen them support the likes of Buzzcocks, Idles and local mates Superglu, and after the release of their debut EP ‘Spring Killing’ earlier this year, they performed on the BBC Introducing stage at this year’s Glastonbury festival. Catch them supporting Peace this Saturday night!
Katie, Rebecca, Charlie and Amanda are Norwich activist riot grrrl band Peach Club. Regulars on the Norwich gig scene, they released their debut EP ‘The Bitch Diaries’ last year and recently bought their angsty feminist message to The Victoria in Dalston. They open up the Friday night of the festival, supporting indie champions The Big Moon and Get Inuit.
