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! It’s a case of “another week, another new chart-topper” this time, with Glasgow band Holy Esque climbing a massive 16 places to reach the Number 1 spot with Rose, displacing Lianne La Havas at the top in the process after just one week.
Not only have the band have been firm favourites at Amazing Radio since the turn of the year, they’ve also been drawing increasing amounts of positive online coverage in the wake of some great live gigs in recent weeks.
Horse Thief are the Glaswegians’ closest contenders at Number 2, with the Simon Raymonde-approved Texans also having rising up the rankings with poise and purpose thanks to a beautiful ode to Oklahoma called Warrior. Slightly further down, Midnight Lion and NZCA/Lines have entered the Top 10 for the very first time, while Monogold and Vanbot continue to climb.
This week has witnessed a small portion of New Entries, with Three Blind Wolves, Midi Matilda and Pushing Hands all making their Amazing Chart bows in the lower reaches of the Top 20.
