GEORDIE lads Smoove and Turrell are rapidly making 2009 their year as the May release of their debut album, Antique Soul, on Jalapeno Records, draws closer.

The pair gained rave reviews from radio DJs like Mark Lamarr, Craig Charles, Stuart Maconie, Marc Radcliffe, Annie Nightingale and Janice Long.

The summer gig list is also starting to take shape with the duo confirmed to perform at the Glastonbury Festival.

Listeners of BBC 6Music will already be familiar with their work. New single, You Don’t Know, has been playlisted.
