An interview with Bristol outfit Norman.

The #saveourvenues campaign, DIY music in Bristol and their debut mixtape.


The band are currently separated between Brighton and Bristol, but that hasn’t stopped the natural buzz around Norman’s debut release. Snappily entitled ‘Mixtape Vol 1 (Songs from the basement, The Old England etc), the new outfit employ a chaotic mix of dissonant brass instruments, off-kilter rhythms and lyrics that roll between Salt & Shake crisps and crippling anxiety.

The band’s visual output is incredibly important to them, they released their debut mixtape as a 10 minute long feature with a superb visual backdrop, a short film almost. We got in touch to talk about the #saveourvenues campaign, DIY music in Bristol and the obsessive nature behind their first release.
