Frankie and The Heartstrings

Back to Sunderland again, but this time for the majestic Frankie and The Heartstrings. The heartstrings are the purveyors of some of the finest pop sounds in Britain at the moment, which kept most of the Hit Club hotel room sane through last month's Great Escape. So one last listen before we start packing and preparing for Glastonbury.

Fragile - Frankie and the Heartstrings


Oh Minnows

Our friends at the fantastic Young and Lost Club, probably the sexiest record label in the world, have given us the amazing debut single 'Might' from Oh Minnows. Written and recorded in Chicago by Chris Steele-Nicholson of semifinalists, the result is one of the most exciting new records we've heard in ages.

Catch these dreamy vocals and swirling sounds all over London in July.

France and the Habsburgs

Sunderland's finest sheet metal cutting factory employees France and The Habsburgs are pretty much the best thing to come out of Wearside since Michael Proctor joined York City on loan in 2001.
