Remember the Californian duo Iglu & Hartly and their 2005 top 5 hit In This City? After eight years, they're back with three new friends and a new name, Youngblood Hawke, hoping to escape their "one hit wonder" status. They're not doing too badly, as they've signed to Universal Republic and their single We Come Running is popular in the US, Canada and Australia. The track has a choral indie sound and a positive energy, perhaps thanks to pop-rock genius co-writer Matt Squire. I can imagine it on the Radio 1 playlist, so UK success may be next.
