Volume 16

Noli Me Tangere (from the album Open Your Arms – 2010) : THE LUCKNOW PACT

A band! From Sweden! And one going for that epic pop sound that bands such as The Killers (with limited success) and Glasvegas (now we’re talking) have aimed for. A monumental sound, in fact, and aided by swathes of echo, synths and drum machines. A very good debut

Ocean (from the album Falling – 2009) : 2020 SOUNDSYSTEM

Perhaps better known as a production team, this Leeds-based crew surprised everyone when they decided to release an album and do the festival circuit. Their ambient sound went down very well indeed. What do they sound like? Imagine Ian Brown wrote and sang the songs and LCD Soundsystem played them. Yep! That sums it up nicely

 Who Is They? (from the album alone – 2011) : THE MORNING AFTER GIRLS

Originally from Australia but now based in New York, this lot have recorded one of the best albums of 2011. Great songs, soaring guitars, and a real epic sound. I hope the next album sees them breaking big, because they deserve it
