Every Sunday evening, Charlie Ashcroft counts down the Amazing Chart across the UK’s national DAB network on Amazing Radio. Here he is to give us the very latest lowdown on the last week’s movers and shakers from amazingtunes.com…
Hello! Plenty of action around the upper reaches of the Amazing Chart this week, with Liverpool-based songwriter Jethro Fox having climbed to the top of the pile with Before after four weeks inside the Top 20. As with previous Number 1 songs in 2012, it has the kind of effortless, summery feel which has us dreaming of the warmer months with the year barely a month old.
Los Angeles producer Dreams slips a place from last week’s top spot, while Work Drugs have made a big leap into the Top 3 from last week’s Number 9 placing. Elsewhere in the Top 10, Swiss Lips, Foe and The Collectable Few have all rocketed into the Top 10 having had New Entries last week.
This week’s new arrivals in the Top 20 come from Birmingham rapper Lady Leshurr at Number 7, Norwegian indie-poppers Team Me at Number 12 and a cluster of quality in the lower reaches from Sharon van Etten, The Ghosts, Gross Magic and Paul Thomas Saunders.
