Sunday Sessions Norwich: The good, the bad, and the Makers

The inaugural edition of Sunday Sessions Norwich, a brand new festival headlined by indie uncles Kaiser Chiefs, seemed like a good idea in theory. In practice, it scraped its way from ‘downright shambles’ to ‘decent day out’ by the skin of its teeth.

LUCIA / “You’d be fucking disco dancing all weekend”

Glasgow newcomer Lucia Fairfull’s neon-tinged music is saturated with references to Blondie, Bowie, and Madonna. Since releasing a debut EP as more of a solo project, Lucia has evolved into a full-blown band affair, which has seen the foursome hit the road with their art-punk mates The Ninth Wave, and before that Britpop darlings Sleeper, where we had a post-set chat at Norwich Arts Centre.

BLOXX / “I don’t want to go home and work at ‘spoons anymore”

Uxbridge foursome Bloxx are a lucky bunch. Since forming in spring 2016, the guitar-pop newcomers have strutted their stuff on stages nationwide alongside some of the finest indie acts of the moment – not bad for a band who still work in Wetherspoons [update – none of the band work at Wetherspoons anymore]. When I join drummer Moz, guitarist Taz, bassist Paul, and ringleader Fee Booth in the green room at Norwich UEA, they’re on the home stretch of an enormous tour opening for The Wombats, set to conclude in a couple of days time at London’s Alexandra Palace. This is a big deal.

SORRY / “People will look up to you whether you’re bad or not”

It’s an unassuming Monday night in March, around 11pm. Fresh from supporting Sunflower Bean in the club room at OPEN, London upstarts Sorry are thirsty for a wild night out. Fat chance. Enticed by the prospect of £1 shots (practically a fairytale compared to the prices at home) we end up at local hotspot The Mischief. Tequila is promptly consumed, pool cues acquired.

WHENYOUNG / “This time last year we would not be saying that Aoife had punched Bono”

Formed in Limerick, Ireland, and now based in London, guitar pop trio whenyoung look all set to become the next big thing in British indie. Endorsed by everyone from The Maccabees to Nick Cave, they’ve toured with the likes of Peace and Declan McKenna and this week unveiled ‘Heaven On Earth’, a new single that demands to be played on repeat; their rough-cut songs gloss up hidden complexities with happy-go-lucky exteriors. With a debut EP slated for release at the end of summer, theirs is a name you should get to know right now.
