Young & Wild
Back in 2003, Snow Patrol released their album «The Final Straw» in a last-ditch attempt to earn a bit of money. The little bit of money turned into millions. Their mix of alternative rock and melancholy pop was received with unwaning enthusiasm. Icelandic singer Emiliana Torrini continues to rediscover the world anew: after rock, trip hop and the blues, she switched over to pop in 1999 on her album «Love In The Time Of Science», which now sounds like a bouquet of colourful flowers. A bit more danceable, the songs of Scotswoman Sandi Thom are pop with a smile.
