Four-piece alternative rock band INHEAVEN are set to headline Norwich Arts Centre next week, February 9 with support from Thyla and Graceland.

After a year in which they fulfilled several landmark ambitions, were highlighted by Radio 1 DJ Huw Stephens in his Alternative Tips for 2018 and were hailed by DIY, a UK based music publication, as “torchbearers for a new, vital era of British guitar bands”, they are set to embark on their headline UK tour which kicks off tomorrow [January 31] in Portsmouth.

They recently released their brand new track ‘Sweet Dreams Baby’ which is an anthem for those who are hoping for better things to come in 2018.

“Ever wish you were someone else? Ever wish you were somewhere else?” begins frontman James Taylor, expressing desires that many can identify with.

Joined on vocals by Chloe Little, the duo’s lyrics remind people not to lose sight of their aspirations.

Sonically, ‘Sweet Dreams Baby’ echoes a succession of timeless American influences – from the insistent percussion of the great 60s girl groups to Springsteen’s yearning and the widescreen hooks of Kings of Leon.

They have gained support from NME, Q, The Independent and DIY, accumulating several hundred thousand YouTube views and Spotify streams, and gaining a loyal cult following.

Tickets for the Norwich show are available for £10 advance from the Norwich Arts Centre website.
