Standing Over 14's (under 16's with an adult)
Shimmering indie-rock from this youthful Scottish four-piece, The View make the kind of music that Primal Scream and The Charlatans would be proud of - clashing guitars, swirling melodies, unexpected crescendos and psychedelic vocals.
They reached number 1 in the UK album charts with their debut long player, Hats Off To The Buskers (which sold in excess of 100,000 records in its first week of release), released on 22 January.
'At last Scotland finds its own grotty underbelly being given a rabid, celebratory pop summation.' - NME.
