I Am In Love. Something we'd all like to be able to say (probably). But apparently the lead singer of this band can scream it at the top of his voice and mean it, so they say.

Formed only four months ago in late 2010, the four boys and one girl from Leicestershire locked themselves away and set about perfecting what they do. And what exactly do they do? Well, they like to focus on putting their loving effort and energy into every song, every note, every drum hit, every key and string on the record.

They aim to make "music that excites people, music that people can connect with, music that crosses decades and maybe even divides opinion." Nothing too ambitious, then! Listing a few of the 'big boys' as their influences (Prince, David Bowie, Freddie Mercury), you get the idea this band are setting their sights pretty high.

Their debut album 'Of Regard and Affection' is set to be released across Europe through Velocity Sounds Records on the 27th May, and in the USA through Pirate Ship Records later in 2011.

Their debut single, I Want You, is our Tip of the Week. It's due to be released through Robot Needs Home Records on 16th May, but you, as part of the priviliged BBC Introducing family, can hear it right here, right now, and all this week on  Radio 1 as it takes pride of place on the playlist.
