Soldier - Amatorski

This is an alternative band out of Belgium. I can't really find out much about them, but I'm liking this song a lot.

You'll Be Mine - The Pierces

Catherine and Allison Pierce were born in Birmingham, Alabama 2 years apart to self-described "hippie" parents (their father was a guitar player, their mother a painter). The girls were home-schooled and grew up traveling extensively, encouraged by their parents to explore their artistic sides. Besides having beautiful musical gifts, both girls are accomplished ballerinas. Their debut album, "The Pierces", was released in 2000 but "got lost in the shuffle" due to a lack of label support. In 2007, they appeared on the television show "Gossip Girl" playing their songs "Secret" and "Three Wishes", bringing their music to the mainstream audience where they have been very well received. Their fourth studio album, "You & I", was just released on May 23, 2011 on Polydor Records.
