Perhaps one of the UK's best-kept secrets, Turin Brakes played the UEA on Sunday evening.
Having just released their third studio album, the band played an unplugged style set that showcased their sweet harmonic sound.
The night kicked off in style with a haunting version of Mind Over Money, with Olly Knight's distinctive voice sending a shiver down the spine.
