Diet Cig, Goat Girl and Sink Ya Teeth took to the stage at Norwich Arts Centre to kick off the Norwich Sound and Vision Festival on Thursday 12 October.
Norwich locals Sink Ya Teeth, made up of Maria Uzor and Gemma Cullingford, opened the night. Their captivating stage presence and confidence made it very evident that they are well established in the Norwich indie music scene.
Delivering some loud and invigorating post-punk tunes, they transported the audience to a synthy paradise. The band definitely lives up to their regional hype.
Goat Girl, a group from South London, was the second act to take to the stage. Recently signed to Rough Trade Records, despite having little material out, they have been named as one of the most exciting new bands in the country performing alongside the likes of Lemon Twigs and Parquet Courts.
The band have a distinctly grunge feel, up against a backdrop of booming dark and edgy sounds the group looked chilled out and incredibly at ease. Their trendy and mysterious aesthetic was very intriguing and I can't wait to watch their careers imminently develop. Their performance made it obvious that they belong on the stage and know it!
