Sometimes, a mash of contradictions just works, and perhaps all it takes is a tiny leap of faith for something truly wonderful to come to light. Even if those contradictions are spread as far apart as contemporary jazz, and traditional classical music but… in the case of local duo Bravo Victor it just… works. The unlikely pair, comprised of bassist Jonathon Burgess and vocalist Sophie Aked, Bravo Victor showcase a truly unique sound, a kaleidoscopic whirlpool of genres so to speak. A complete treat for any lover of music. Featuring only bass and voice, with the added bonus of a few A’cappella effects here and there, their latest single, ‘The Duel’, has finally dropped. And… it’s an absolute winner. Accompanied by a quirky, yet well executed video clip, Sohpie’s delicately layered vocals combined with a killer bass line will have you hooked from the very first moment.
Keep an eye out for these guys dropping an EP very soon. Definitely an outfit to watch!
If it's on in Newcastle, it's on Newcastle Live
