Viva Machine - "My Jet Set Radio"
This teenage quartet hailing from South Wales have served up the best first 12 seconds of a song we've heard in long time. And we've heard a lot of songs for the first 12 seconds - a lot. The rest isn't too shabby either. Their punchy pop is worth keeping an ear out for.
Laura B - "Midi A Minuit"
The deeply chilled outings from this French solo artist have already graced the nation's airwaves thanks to Pete Tong and Chris Coco. On the strength of this debut offering from her own Fantastic Recordings imprint, Laura B's rise won't be as gentle as her music.
Rizzo - "Around Me"
The taut pop of Colchester-based Rizzo is promising stuff, falling roughly in the region of Throwing Muses, Belly and The Breeders. While we're at it, a free Pro upgrade for the first person to tell us another band named after a character from "Grease".
