Plain White T's
Hey There Delilah
Having released their debut at the beginning of the millennium, Plain White T's are now onto their forth album, but have only recently come to prominence by topping the Billboard Hot 100 in America. Born in the suburbs of Chicago, the quintet that comprise the group are now enjoying touring with Emo-leaders Fall Out Boy and recently made an appearance at the Carling Festival.
Given that this quintet have previously shared stages with Jimmy Eat World and Head Automatica, it comes as quite a surprise that 'Hey There Delilah' is actually a tender acoustic number that strums along casually with a subtle string backing. Given a few listens it soon gets under your skin and it's easy to hear why it was such a success in the band's homeland. Young teen girls will swoon over it and it could easily feature on the soundtrack of shows like 'Smallville' or 'The O.C.'
