It’s now just two weeks to go until the Festival, where live shows will be happening in both New York and London on the same night.

The Futureheads and Chapel Club are two of the London leg’s home-grown talents, while Leicestershire’s own Young Knives will kickstart their year in style. Trends looks at how the band have scrobbled so far and what could be in store for fans at the Festival.

Originally called The Young Knives – the band changed their name to Young Knives for 2008’s Superabundance – a look at the band’s top five overall tracks shows only one track, “Terra Firma,” from their most recent effort entering the band’s chart. The rest of the top five is made up from their first full length, Voices of Animals and Men, which was released in 2006.

The band’s most popular track to date has been “Weekends and Bleak Days (Hot Summer)” which can count 193,055 scrobbles.

With the Festival fast approaching, it will be interesting to see if the band will take the scrobble counts of songs into consideration when putting their set together. Will we see the performance littered with old favorites or will newer material make the cut?

You can find out more info on Young Knives on their page.
