UK Music Chain HMV Tips Rising Irish Rockers The Answer To Break Through in 2009

UK Music chain HMV has released its top ten compilation list of "unknowns" tipped to break through this year.

In the past, the store has predicted the success of Franz Ferdinand, The Arctic Monkeys and Duffy.

HMV music buyer Rob Watson said: "There's perhaps not one stand out name that's on everyone's lips, as we saw with Duffy last year, but that's more than made up for by the sheer number and quality of the new acts in the frame.

"There's a bumper crop of fresh faces out there, and 2009 promises to be a vintage year for new music."

Blues/rock band The Answer, from County Down who have been supporting AC/DC and signed with Albert Productions is top of the list, Filthy Dukes who have already played stages at Glastonbury and Bestival are second and Florence and the Machine, a 22-year-old quirky singer-songwriter from Camberwell, south London, is also one to look out for.
