People can enjoy a taste of the French music scene at OPEN on Thursday as part of Norwich Sound + Vision.
The night of French acts is being brought to the city by Bureau Export and the Institut Français.
“There seems to be a real buzz about Norwich Sound + Vision and so we really wanted to be a part of it,” said David McKenna from Bureau Export. We Were Evergreen, described as a harmonious, upbeat indie-pop trio, is returning to the UK for NS+V after a sold out UK tour in the spring and a number of festival performances this summer including at Wilderness and Summer Camp.
Mesparrow, a singer from Tours called Marion Gaume, does pop in the widest sense of the word and combines modern music with roots reaching back to gospel and music hall, while Cheveu is a proto-punk trio from Paris, in the same vein as Cabaret Voltaire or Suicide.
Indie rock group BRNS, from the medieval and postmodern corners of Brussels, are a quartet of talented multi-instrumentalists whose music is described as “a mesmerizing experiment in dusk, dance and the fullness of sound.”
The bands will be playing at OPEN from 7.30pm on Thursday.Mesparrow at 7.30pm, BRNS at 8.30pm, Cheveu at 9.30pm and We Were Evergreen at 10.30pm.
