VAGABOND: Throaty soul-rock outfit fronted by Michael Hutchence-like Alex Vargas. Proof Xenomania do more than just girl pop.
Brian Higgins: «Alex is a true star. Their best is yet to come.»
Key track: "Don't Wanna Run No More"


MINI VIVA: "In yer face" female double act, the likes of which haven't been seen since Salt-N-Pepa or (ye Gods) Daphne and Celeste. Very pop.
Brian Higgins: «The're a rare act where it all seemed to come together, to make sense.»
Key track: "Left My Heart In Tokyo"


PAGEBOY: Catchy pop-rock with a soulful side: singer Brooke X was discovered fronting female US Led Zeppelin tribute band Lez Zeppelin.
Brian Higgins: «She has charisma and stage presence not seen in a long time.»
Key track: "My Love"


ALEX GARDNER: Nineteen-year-old, sometime Edinburgh model; already being talked up as "the next Duffy". Only male.
Brian Higgins: «He has a timeless way about him, far beyond his years. Looks like a matinée idol.»
Key track: "Yesterday's News"


GOLDMARK: Think a dancier Coldplay. Gerard O'Connell fronted failed major-label indie types The Rushes, before signing with Higgins.
Brian Higgins: «He's in possession of a remarkably powerful voice. He shakes the rafters.»
Key track: "Call Within A Minute"


NITEVISIONS: AKA Andy and James Taylor - sons of Andy and Roger of Duran Duran. Used to feature Simon LeBon's nephew on drums. True.
Brian Higgins: «The best bits about synths and guitar-led pop rolled into one.»
Key track: "Fire"
