Huw here in for Zane. Tonights Hottest Record comes from a band tipped in the BBC Sound of 2010 Poll at number 4. They're a duo from Manchester who haven't played a single gig. Their black and white video on their myspace got people talking when it appeared in late 2009. And with a major label deal and four gigs planned in February, here's a band taking control of their destiny and doing things their own way. You might have heard Wonderful Life on Zane's show, their session for me on a Wednesday or ina cool and trendy dark and dingy German club during a lost weekend. There's cold beats, there's a definite 80's vibe throughout their music, and there's some straight from the heart deep and beautiful lyrics here. Expect big things. And have a bop to this.
