Breakout Band of 2009: The Script

If you haven’t heard of the band The Script, it’s about time you put them on your radar. Named the VH1 “You Oughta Know Artists on the Rise,” The Script is the band everyone in the industry is talking about.

Their self-titled album is the #1 UK debut album, and has sold over 2 million copies worldwide. They were personally chosen by Paul McCartney & U2 to open for them in concert, and just sold out a US headlining tour and just opened for David Cook.

The Irish trio boast a whole new brand of Celtic Soul, blending hip hop lyrical flow with pop melodiousness, state-of-the-art R'n'B production with anthemic rock dynamics, classic song construction with gritty contemporary narratives. It's got all the emotion and passion you would expect from across the Irish sea, but it is glittering in its modernity, universal in its singalong addictiveness and global in its syncopation, music for the feet, heart and head. Think U2 versus Timbaland, Van Morrison remixed by Teddy Riley.
