Brighton based soul and hip-hop group Normanton Street are making waves.
With a blend of beautiful vocals, down to earth spoken word and jazz influenced grooves, their EP Life’s Real, released last year through their own label drew on influences from Nina Simone, Wu-Tang Clan, Jill Scott, Lauryn Hill, The Streets, Skepta, Thelonious Monk and Miles Davis.
In a recent interview with the Independent, the band said of the EP: “We were influenced by the usual hip-hop music we love as well as 70’s jazz records that have plenty of space yet still make you want to make moves and dance.”
The trio have already built up a loyal live following having supported legendary rapper Talib Kweli and Mercury–nominated poet Kate Tempest over the past year. Stay locked…
