Black & Gold, Sam Sparro's latest single, has become an instant hit heading straight to the top of the UK charts. This is more than a flash in the pan though as he jumps straight in with the likes of Justice and Hercules & Love Affair as part of our soundtrack to 2008.
This band's debut album is called 59:59 after it's running time and is an album of organic dreamscapes and repetitive sound which moves through indie, rock and jazz. One to check out for fans of Bat for Lashes, Atlas Sound and the like.
