Next Big Thing For 2010 #5 - Band Of Skulls

So, three Southamptonites form a band at college, make their debut LP in Radiohead's Oxford studio and head out on a US jaunt opening for Passion Pit. Yet all such went down under the radar, so to speak. Good thing 'Twilight' helmer Chris Weitz knew of 'em, enough to stick their semi-rock rampant 'Friends' on the 'New Moon' OST - where I chanced upon them. What with presently the globe's hottest film franchise ticked off and all, more will surely see them now.
