The Brit List: Coldplay, Kaiser Chiefs, Brit Bands at SXSW (March 2, 2012)

2. Brute Chorus at SXSW

This rollicking London quartet is fronted by James Steel, who laces his delivery with a sexy combination of gruff and cunning. (Fair warning: this song first gained popularity as part of the soundtrack for the soft-core film Suicide Girls’ Guide to Living. Hey, good music can come from anywhere, right?) The band will make their American debut on March 6 in New York City.
