It may have taken an age for much of the world to fall in love with these boys from Bury but now the band play to packed out stadiums, win awards and never seem to be off the television and radio.
All those years spent honing their craft has paid off, in spades. Now, their melodies are more complex, their harmonies richer and their lyrics even more poetic than before. And in a year which has seen them conquer Glastonbury, release their critically-acclaimed fifth album and gain yet another nomination for the Mercury Music Prize, for us at least, they’ve saved the best till last: this month they play Barcelona for the first time.
