The NS&V launch party kicked off at Norwich Arts Centre on Monday night with the publication of the full exciting line-up programme, some speeches from those involved and a gig with a really strong line-up of local talents.
Sink Ya Teeth returned to the NAC stage and played a storming set to start off the music, they were highly impressive. A lot of people were seeing them for the first time and I heard so much favourable feedback afterwards. They thrived on the Arts Centre stage, looked and sounded wonderful.
The talented Maya Law continues to develop and grow in confidence, as does Alex Hill of No Holy Men who truly commanded the stage for their set. Her voice – somewhere between PJ Harvey and Patti Smith – soared beautifully.
Within moments of hearing Cabrakid for the first time I understood what the buzz and fuss is all about. Everyone loved them. Look out for a forthcoming collaborative album between Maya and Gabriel of Cabrakid under the name of Allergy Kid which will launch on 13 October at Space Studios for Tilting Sky. Cabrakid support Loyle Carner at NAC on 4 October but this is already sold out.
