Time can be a real bitch. Today's buzz band can be tomorrow's bargain bin. It's just the nature of things. Thankfully, the band featured in today's A-Sides will have staying power long after this post I've written about them fades into the black abyss known as the Internet.
Josh Franceschi, Max Helyer, Chris Miller, Dan Flint, and Matt Barnes have had quite a run lately all over the globe. Their substantive single "Room to Breathe" is in the top 10 on rock radio, and they sold out Wembley Arena right out of the gate.
Ten years ago, Kevin Lyttle had a smash summer hit with the soca ballad "Turn Me On." I remember that song for oh so many reasons. For starters, it's not every beat that can get this guy (points to self) moving at bars or clubs.
