On Friday, Nov. 6th Normanton Street will continue their recent activity with a new jazzy single ‘Senorita’ in collaboration with the Bradford Youth Orchestra, who provide strings and horns on the track. Like many independent artists, it’s been a tough year for the band to overcome with no live shows since February, however, they have found new ways to progress and overcome adversity.
Speaking on this time period guitarist Ned stated; “To be totally honest, this year has been really hard for independent artists as we operate on a tight budget. Most of our income for the band comes from playing shows. In our most active year we played over 100 shows – so it’s a big impact on bands who predominately gig at small and medium sized venues. We’ve tried to stay active by keeping busy with creating and finalising music. Putting more focus on extra bits like photoshoots and adapting to the industry by doing streamed gigs. We plan to do more of that soon. The music vibe is kept alive by staying productive and finding new innovative ways to reach new audiences. As independent artists right now, that’s what we’ve got to do until we can gig live again.”
Shout out Bradford Youth Orchestra who played on this and Count Kujo’s horn section for helping us finish it Support the vibe by listening to it on streaming platforms we’ll soon put all our catalogue up on bandcamp too Peace and Love.
