The Barlights launch their NR ONE debut album If It Wasn't for the Light the Dark Would Have Killed Us at Norwich Arts Centre tonight (8pm) with a showcase of label acts.

From the outer edges of jagged guitar pop comes the Barlights interpretation of the dramatic, emotional and fun.

The young four-piece formed in Norwich in 2004 as Oblique but became the Barlights after a change in line-up and musical direction.

The album brings together their upbeat riffs with a light dusting of melancholy, taking on board influences from established acts such as the National, the Walkmen and Ryan Adams.

The gig is for ages 14-plus only.
