Next Big Thing For 2011 #2 - Trophy Wife

Some bands only sound like their contemporaries. But Trophy Wife, they actually used to live with theirs. In fact, drummer Kit Monteith went one even further and was educated at the same Oxford primary school as Foals' Yannis. And like Foals, there is a sensual moxie about their beat disco. Alongside Kit, we've singer-guitarsman Jody Prewett and keyboardist Ben Rimmer, plus a healthy preference for German 'lectro kings The Notwist. A debut record for this year might be asking a bit too much too soon, but a couple more Moshi singles wouldn't go a miss.
