Three very different duos from Norfolk are set to play the latest of the Eclectic Nights at Gringos (Prince of Wales road), Norwich on Saturday 10th February.
Rain Valley People, aka Alick and Nigel, play moody lyrical and hauntingly beautiful acoustic songs and have been championed by BBC 6 Music’s Tom Ravenscroft.
One Vista returned in October following a 4 year hiatus and a launch for their 7th album ‘Return’ at an eclectic night. The duo of Roger and Jules play lyrical electro and synth pop with excursions on the most recent album into Trip hop and electronica as well, but the song is always the key element of their sound.
Sister Kick (formerly Ruby Flipper) is an outlet for 20 years of melody-obsessed songwriting. A duo of Steve and Emma they like to think that every song sounds different. Some are loud, some are slow, but most make you dance. They have sampled Chicago House beats and speeded them up to 130+bpm, incorporated rhythmic raw untreated guitar and lashings of melody, prog drums on loops, snippets of female r&b and far too much distortion.
Rain Valley People will be on stage at about 8.30pm, One Vista at about 9.20pm, and Sister Kick at about 10.10pm. The doors open at 8.15pm and the night runs to 11pm. £2 entry. For more information visit www.gringosnorwich.co.uk.
