The Sonic Youths latest batch of emerging musicians aged between 14-19 showcased at the Norwich Arts Centre on Saturday 13th February. This time out featured Flora Pechey, Suburban Tide and Lucy Grubb with the Lost Boys.
First up was singer songwriter Flora Pechey with a varied set of self penned material. A variation of styles kept the enthusiastic audience enthralled. Her quirky links between numbers were natural and witty and her musicianship quite superb.
Next act was a band from the Norwich Access To Music college who took no prisoners with a loud and vibrant set of original material. Suburban Tide look like a band out to have fun. I liked the retro ‘punky’ feel to the set but the clever use of time and tempo changes in their songs sets them apart from the run of the mill pub bands. Look out for this band… A few famous faces have been through the doors of this college!
Closing the afternoon was Lucy Grubb & The Lost Boys. A great set of well rehearsed numbers, well received by their own fans and everyone in the auditorium.
A great afternoon of emerging talent…
