In Holland it's mostlyThe Killers (even among the plastics!), Bloc Party, em... I think I'll have to do a bit more research now, it's quite interesting.

Black Mountain played on a festival here, I thought they were just a small band from the US/Canada

Thanks guys! I always thought there would be a big difference. Like, if a band was big here...it would have already been "over" in the UK or wherever. Kaiser Chiefs have only been popular here for a couple of months (their show was the best I've seen all year!)...I'm loving Architecture in Helsinki right now! I'm hoping to hear about some cool bands that haven't got much attention here yet.

James Blunt is big in the UK at the moment, and him and Damien Rice seem to be boosting the popularity of Jack Johnson and other similar artists. Everyone seems to have their own discovery, because acoustic singer/songwriters are cool right now.

However, Damien Rice is the only one who can really write music although James Blunt has his moments.

Nice for James and Damien, I didn't know Damien was English. Last year he got a lot of attention among the um, musicfreaks like me, I love Amie.

I really am a snob. I've heard quite a few bands that were mentioned here, some I don't even listen to. Maximo Park seems to be 'hot', and um... Kaiser Chiefs? I said I was going to do good research

So, I checked the ELLEGirl forums There was talk about: Jamie Cullum, Kanye West, McFly, John Travolta (yep, in the music section), Greenday, My Chemical Romance, Saybia, KT Dunstall, Michael Buble, Gwen Stefani, Gavin Degraw and Jack Johnson. I don't know half of them.... I can tell you who's hot locally: Racoon, Gabriel Rios, Krezip, Anouk and The Sheer.

I already had the faint suspicion that band is not very warmly received at this place What kind of music do they play? Is it another emo band?
