Stepping into the breach with impeccable timing are X&Y - aka Ben Cork, Ash Howarth and Rhys Morgan. (That's them above, Is that a big chair, or are they midgets?).
Their new single Footprints is a galloping pop stomper with a rousing "HEY!" in the chorus, so people who don't know the words can pump their fists in the air and feel involved - which is great pop writing, as any fule kno.
The trio support Take That at the BST festival in Hyde Park later this week. Expect to hear them on a radio near you soon.
