London ‘new rave’ trio of Jamie Reynolds, Simon Taylor-Davis and James Righton burst onto the scene in 2007 after gathering an underground following. Following a string of releases on vinyl, they were picked up by radio before their debut album Myths Of The Near Future (2007) was released to much hype. It didn’t disappoint, reaching No. 2 and winning the prestigious Mercury Music Prize. Their blend of dance and electro mixed with rock had crossed over into the mainstream.
