Hometown: The quintet formed in Church Village, a small town near Pontypridd, earlier this year. Antidotes is their debut single - not bad going at all.

Style: Peasant's King are fully charged pop rock outfit geared for the charts. Antidotes is a big, emotional rock anthem with a groove. Like the recent work of Elbow and Kings Of Leon, it's perfectly constructed to get you singing from the rooftops and yes, there is a girl choir... and yes, there are strings!

You need to know: While the majority of the band are still studying, drummer Harry is a climbing instructor. *Insert your climbing the charts gag here*

Supported by: Antidotes was first played by Bethan Elfyn on BBC Radio Wales.
