Swedish four-piece Normandie started life as a metalcore band but when the band’s screamer and bass player left in 2015, they took the opportunity to re-assess their sound. Based on ‘Collide’ you’ve got to say it was a decision well made.

With a huge chorus backed by excellent vocals, upbeat rhythms and soaring chords, Normandie have entered the anthemic alt-rock scene with all the swagger and competence of a band that’s been playing this genre for years.

Their debut album ‘INGUZ’ is out on February 19th (click here to pre-order) and I’d definitely recommend having a listen.
