It could be said that Riches Of The Poor, espouse a certain joy in misery; they’re named after a Morrissey lyric after all.

Sinplus comprise brothers Ivan and Gabriel Broggini, and if you’re like me, you’ll remember them from the Eurovision Song Contest in 2012, where they represented their native Switzerland in the first semi final with the song, ‘Unbreakable’. But even if you’re not like me, you’ll nonetheless be impressed to know that Sinplus won an MTV Award as best Swiss Act, as well as a nomination for Best European Act. Sinplus’ latest single, ‘Dreams’, was released in April, and its radio friendly sound, with delightfully close sibling harmonies, should well see it played on radio stations across the UK and US.
