One Vista press reviews:
Sofacom.co.uk “stonkingly good electro pop with that most rare quality – a decent tune”
“One of Norfolk’s most promising bands” Eastern Daily Press
"We Just Got It wrong (collaboration between One Vista and Bispatial) is one of the standout tracks of the album...heavy 909 beats and house piano rock this track". Taken from Tlectronic Rumours review of Electropop 6 compilation.
“….constantly striving to write the perfect pop songs. Until then they are happy entertaining crowds…” Norwich Advertiser
“good band with some nice tracks that all have good airplay quality-I feel that they seem to shine on the slower numbers like 'Susan' and 'Get It Right'. Where they both have an etheral feel. Just the right track for these guys -might be the breakthrough. Remind me a little of Saint Etienne and a more subdued Goldfrapp. The female vocal is a winner” hameldonfm radio station
"One Vista - stylish flirt of electronic disco based Siouxsie and the Banshees" Emma Nylen (Electropop 4 album notes)
From Norwich’s Triangle Magazine: “a heady combination of 60’s style kitchen sink lyrics and 80’s electro pop”, “a male/female duo who know how to write great songs – excellent"
“The song’s innocence and bright sunny demeanour caught our ear” Future Music Magazine
Review taken from 'Wired for Sound' Gt. Yarmouth Advertiser by Sharon Richardson.'
"One Vista is a two piece electro-dance singer/songwriter outfit hailing from Norwich. With influences ranging from Saint Etienne, Pet Shop Boys, Massive Attack and New Order they fuse this inspiration with original and sturdy songwriting.
One Vista play hypnotically sweet dance-pop melodies with blissed out charm. Their latest album Synthetics contains 11 tracks (and a bonus of a remix Hold me 07 from Norwich based musician Milo B) of hooky melodies and electronic swirls creating an evocative and entrancing sound complemented by delicate and seductive vocals.
One Vista's music would be perfect on the dance floor but equally lends itself to anyone in a more chill out mood. Pulsing rhythms, dynamic electro twists and turns and sophisticated vocals makes One Vista tuned to FM perfection.
Vista are regularly working on new songs and all the songwriting and production is handled by the band themselves. They regularly play live around the area and further afield".
"Susan", is featured on the Inside My Head podcast.
This episode had a special guest, called Xandarr, who talked about music that brings back memories for him
Apparently after they recorded the show, he said that out of all the songs played on Inside My Head, "Susan" was his favorite one!
