The final night of Norwich Sound and Vision saw rock group We'll Be Detectives and garage punk trio Gaffa Tape Sandy open the show for the Birmingham melodic indie outfit, Peace.

The band are gearing up for the release of their third album, and took to the stage to work their way through a plethora of hits, whipping the teenage crowd into a frenzy with ease.

Kicking the set off with radio-friendly bop, 'Lovesick', followed by a series of tracks from their first and second albums, In Love, and Happy People, the band segued into new material with confidence.

New songs, 'My Big F---ing Mental Head' and 'Kindness is The New Rock and Roll' hinted at a move to a more introspective third offering, more in tune with the dreamy, Lana del Ray worthy 'California Daze', or old favourite 'Float Forever'.

Peace seemed happy to be back, describing the city as 'the magical Norwich', before ending the show with the catchy 'Bloodshake'.
