Hue & Cry

Hue & Cry are coatbridge brothers Patrick (vocals) and Greg (instruments) Kane, who have been recording and performing since the mid-to-late 1980s to the present day. The Kanes became known for both their creative jazz-pop style records and Patrick's distinctive, soulful voice (drawing strong similarities to Level 42 in both respects) - despite not achieving overwhelming commercial success, they are well respected by a large fanbase, and have recorded and released albums regularly (some of them failing to chart in the UK).

The Rosie Taylor Project

The Rosie Taylor Project are a Leeds, United Kingdom based 6-piece who inhabit a world seen through the windows of cafes and from the corners of Charles Roka gypsy paintings. Think heartfelt, observational songs of love and loss built around beautiful melodies and infectious hooks. Their sound evokes the gentle qualities of Camera Obscura, Iron & Wine and Nick Drake, but it’s their delicate simplicity and self understanding which stands out and connects to the listener.

Sparks

There are at least three bands named Sparks. One is an American rock and pop music band formed in Los Angeles in 1970 by brothers Ron Mael (keyboards) and Russell Mael (vocals), initially under the name Halfnelson. Best known for their quirky approach to song writing, Sparks' music is often accompanied by cutting and acerbic lyrics, and an idiosyncratic stage presence, typified in the contrast between Russell's wide-eyed hyperactive frontman antics and Ron's sedentary scowling.

The Bank Holidays

From the band's site (http://www.thebankholidays.com/the_story.html)
It begins in the small Norwegian fishing town of Stavanger, as two members of The Bank Holidays spend their days playing badminton, enjoying fjords, and hanging out with Norwegian grandparents, all while listening to Norway's favourite musical sons Kings of Convenience. These factors result in a song, and the idea for a band whose primary occupation is vocal harmonies and melodies of the highest order.
