I was going to make a thread for this the other week but I thought I'd wait until Unknown Pleasures finished since they had a song in it... laugh.gif

So this band have been around for a few years but I just discovered them earlier this year thanks to them getting some Radio 1 backing for 'Brave Face' and (the now anointed 6th place Unknown Pleasures smash) 'Fell In Love With The City'. No surprise that Radio 1 are fans of them as their sound is kind of a mishmash of various other very Radio 1 friendly acts (can hear a lot of London Grammar in them and a bit of Everything Everything, alt-J, Bastille etc.) - though their most standout quality is their singer's very distinctive and striking androgynous voice. May not be for everyone but I really like it ~

They released their debut album 'I Slept On The Floor' the other week, worth checking out some of the other songs anyone who enjoyed their UP track. My favourite is the last single they dropped before the album, the beautiful 'All Ends', quite a slow-burner that I've liked more and more every time I've heard it. Other highlights for me from the album were 'Avalanche' (a single from 2 years ago lol), 'Riverbed' and the Imogen Heap-esque title track (which I'd have liked to be a bit longer, felt more like an interlude than a proper song but it was a good curveball on the tracklist). 'The Cracks' (another old single that's been included here) is their most streamed song on Spotify, also thought that was pretty good cool.gif











The album was in the midweek top 40 but sadly ended up falling short of the top 100, here's hoping for them to get some more recognition going forward (hope Radio 1 will continue to back them).
