Now playing on Radio 1, part 2 - Everything Everything
Following on from last week's great news about the addition of selected unsigned artists to the Radio 1 daytime playlist, this week's chosen band is Manchester's Everything Everything, with the track My Keys, Your Boyfriend.
Everything Everything will be performing on the BBC Introducing stage at Reading (Friday) and Leeds (Sunday).They've been put forward by BBC Introducing in Manchester, who interviewed the band back in October 2008.
As capable of filling a dancefloor as they are of sparking a thought, they're the sort of band that many an act will forever dream of being.

They've also found a fan in Zane Lowe, who made the single his Hottest Record in the World last week.
Yesterday, the track was played out on Jo Whiley's show on Radio 1 (listen again on BBC iPlayer here) and once again, there were some great responses from listeners nationwide:
