Vista are accomplished yet fresh songwriters from the South East of England. The duo have been making music since the mid 90's, from an eclectic range of influences including synth pop/dance and 80's electro pop, with artists such as Saint Etienne, Pet Shop Boys, Massive Attack and New Order among the artists they have beem inspired by.

Their album, 'A Different View', captures this range of styles whilst maintaining a constant thread of melodic, melancholic, original songwriting.

Vista's music generates solid electronic beats with bittersweet yet seductive vocals with a mood that takes you far away - as one fan described, 'to a corner of an Italian café under a pergola of scented orange blossom reading English poetry!'

Both band members live in and around the city of Norwich and as well as playing live, their songs have had radio play and topped an internet song poll for bands in the area. Vista now have a new band member, Si on keyboards joined in December 2006 and is now very much part of the VISTA live sound. So, if you're a fan of electronic music with strong vocal melodies, this is for you!

Information from the band themselves - but all at Sofacom towers are greatly impressed! So there.
