To last ten years in the fickle industry that is the music business, you earn the right to call yourself a star. To go beyond that you start heading into a different solar system. Irish duo Jedward, John and Edward Grimes, today transcend the bounds of the Milky Way as they mark 11 years since they first headed down the road to becoming household names.
One could be excused for mistaking this band’s name for a possible catch phrase for the second half of this absurd year we’re currently living in, but aliensdontringdoorbells has little to do with the wreckage of alien craft at Roswell, or the “big reveal” that beings from another world walk among us.

It’s an absolute joy to catch an artist on their way up towards stardom.
