The band for your consideration this month - and i think this i will be making a regular thing, are The Futureheads - they've been around a while in the UK. And i've loved them since i heard HOUNDS of LOVE on the radio - which i didn't know was a Kate Bush cover until a couple of minutes ago.
Okay so as its the first for your consideration thing i'm also going to suggest that everyone checks out Orson - they've just released their debut single which made it top 10 this weekend. It's called No Tomorrow - and it's really good. I've only heard two other songs from them but they seem to be really good. Can't wait to hear more from them.
Oh and for good luck, on the pop front, Girls Aloud's new single comes out this month it's called Whole Lotta History - its a nice ballad - the best ballad they've done so far (and it's not a cover which makes it even better FYI the two other ballads that they have released have been covers - I'll Stand By You and See The Day)
