CHAMPS - 'St. Peters' [405 Premiere]
Hailing from the Isle of Wight, you may not have heard of CHAMPS yet, but after you listen to their latest song, the beautiful 'St. Peters', you'll never forget them.
It may seem like an exaggeration at first but I'm ready to go on hand by saying this is one of the best songs of 2012. Absolutely fantastic, building, amazing. You can hear it below (and replay it as well) and look out for the band's debut 7'', expected to be released on the 24th of September (you can pre-order the 7'' here).
Enjoy cave-like glitteriness and heartfelt vocals on this very pretty ambient electronic track. [read more]
The real star of the show is Francesca's beautiful vocals which are tinged with that R&B quality that works so well with this poppy jazz that we've heard so often in the likes of Jessie Ware and Rosie Lowe. [read more]
