Wet have a great break-up song; Tay­lor bigs up Florence

Track of the week: Dead­wa­ter by

Wet A dreamy and poignant tune from Mas­sachusetts trio Wet, with the kind of sul­try top line that Miguel would envy. It’s a breakup song, but so wist­ful you don’t get the mes­sage un­til it’s al­most too late.

Think flanged gui­tars, vo­cal over­dubs and spacey key­boards, all car­ried by a plain­tive fe­male vo­cal. And at just three min­utes 30, it’s all over too soon.

Hero of the week is Florence and the Ma­chine, says Tay­lor Swift, who told Bill­board that she can’t get enough of Flo. “Ev­ery time I’ve been around her, she is the most mag­netic per­son in the room – sur­rounded by peo­ple who are fas­ci­nated by the idea of be­ing near her. But when she meets peo­ple, she pays them a warm com­pli­ment and im­me­di­ately dis­arms them.”

Zero of the week is glit­ter, ac­cord­ing to re­formed glit­ter lover Ke­sha. She told Vogue: “I look back lov­ingly be­cause I was hav­ing so much fun . . . be­fore I went on stage I used to pour beer on my body then roll in a bath­tub full of glit­ter. I don’t do that any­more be­cause it

ir­ri­tated my skin.” X Fac­tor alum­nus Re­becca

Fer­gu­son is writ­ing a novel. She told the Daily Record: “All I can say is that it is sci-fi. I don’t want to give too much away but it will be quite shock­ing when peo­ple see it.”
