I always love it when something wonderful pops up unexpectedly on the radio, so it was a real treat to hear the song Bang Bang by Melody Says on Xfm this morning,
Hats off to Jim Gellatly at Xfm Scotland for picking this track as his breakthrough track of the day and to Fraser Thomson for playing it this morning.
French artists, other than a few well-known acts, rarely get an airing on radio so it was nice to hear a young artist getting some well-deserved exposure.
Melody Says, known to her friends and family as Alix Lachiver, is a Scottish educated Parisian singer, who sounds like an indie Françoise Hardy.
She's toured extensively, and worked with Pete Doherty, collaborating on the writing of the track Penguins on the recent Babyshambles album Sequel to the prequel.
She has been in the studio with Scottish producer Kenny Paterson, who worked with Placebo and the Lightning Seeds.
Hopefully we'll be hearing more from her soon, and hopefully she'll be a regular feature on the radio.
