Artist: Normanton Street
Album: It’s Been A While
Release Date: August 25th
Label: QM Records
This track sees the band broaden their sound beyond hip-hop and soul whilst still maintaining a hint of these elements. There seems to be a mixture of old school garage and disco which is delivered through guitar, keyboard, bass and drums. Both the feel of the track and the video were inspired by the band’s journeys around Europe over the past couple of years. ‘It’s Been A While’ has already proven to be popular with the fans that have heard the track this summer. The band decided to add the song to their set list during some of the festivals. Since then, fans have been awaiting the official release and music video.
Nicholson & Ned (both on guitar, bass and vocals) have been close friends since childhood. After moving to Brighton to pursue music they soon met Phoebe. Ever since, the three have written countless songs and performed live throughout UK, Europe and USA having played everywhere from SXSW in Austin, Soundwave Festival in Croatia, as well as headline shows in Brighton, New York City, Sweden and across the whole of Europe.
The trio form the core of the band and perform live with various other close musicians who occupy the drums, keys or saxophone when necessary. Normanton Street have been known for their incredible live shows and this latest single is sure to enhance their reputation as a great sounding band on record.
