After years away from music due to commitments as a commercial diver, the creative roar within Andrew has erupted, bringing a new energy and adventure for his alt rock sound.
Drawing on inspirations which include the likes of Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, Muse, Radiohead, and Oasis, Aberdeenshire hailing Andrew Norquay has breached new imagination and inventive tenacity in the songs on his Vices EP

Lyrically, they explore and challenge personal and social issues within a landscape of growling riffs and fiery melodies leaving a lingering impact on your thoughts and any appetite for evocatively rousing rock ‘n’ roll.




 


NORQUAYThe first result of his new burst of inspiration is the Vices EP. Consisting of five heart bred tracks as infectiously anthemic as they are emotionally open and boldly fertile, the EP is a galvanic realisation of Andrew’s step forward in craft and invention from previous releases. 
From the dark snarl shaping the stoner spiced roar of The Black Dog and the desert rock hued incitement of Animal, the Vices EP commands attention. 
It is a variety which has also simply blossomed in his songwriting, evidenced further within the new release by the predacious yet exotically coloured stroll of Warfare and Slaves with its mesmeric southern blues drawl. 
The Vices EP by Andrew Norquay is a tapestry of varied genres and adventurous imagination subsequently mixed and mastered by Rohan Onraet (Gary Barlow, Wonderland, Delta Goodrem, Audio Bullys, Starsailor).
