There is a new number one on the chart! 

Wake Owl ruffled a few feathers and turned some heads by quietly nesting at the top of the chart this week.

Their number one song "Wild Country", is the title track from the bands début E.P which has been released not once but twice!  Expect big things from this Vancouver based band who are out on a tour for the summer, before settling in to record their début album in the fall. 

There's a new entry on the chart this week by the Dublin based band Kodaline

The band chose that name because it meant absolutely nothing. "Kodaline", just a made up word they could own. Later they discovered Kodaline is a character in the on-line fantasy role-playing game World Of Warcraft. Super nerdy! The band promises they've never even played the game. It’s just a bizarre coincidence.

Here's a mini monster movie to accompany the bands new song  “All I Want”.

 

 Enjoy the countdown!
