Chart Notes:

  • Four debuts land on the survey this week: the highest, at #36, is by newcomer Big Data with “Dangerous”. The brains of the project is producer Alan Wilkis, and the vocals are performed by guest Daniel Armbruster, lead singer for the New York band Joywave. It’s currently receiving some airplay at Alternative radio, including KROQ-FM in Los Angeles.
  • A notch below that is Irish duo Hudson Taylor, in with their second hit, “Weapons”. It enters at #37. It’s the followup to “Care”, which peaked at #32 in October. The two brothers, Alfie and Harry, recently performed a few gigs in the Los Angeles area before heading back to Europe.
  • Two British acts also jump aboard the chart this week: at #38 are the Kaiser Chiefs, the quintet originally from Leeds. Their sixth hit is “Coming Home”, their first entry since 2009’s “You Want History”, which topped out at #33 in April. It leads Education, Education, Education & War, due in the U.S. on April 1. Below them is London-born Paloma Faith, debuting at #39 with “Can’t Rely On You”. It’s her first top 40 entry.
  • Sadly, we say goodbye to “Let Her Go” by Passenger this week, the tune that spent an immense twelve weeks at #1, ended the year at #1 and totaled 48 weeks in the top 40, tying for the second-longest run in my chart’s history. (Joining it is “Free” by Graffiti6, my #1 song of 2012.) It won’t be the same without it on, but no worries: another of his former #1’s, “The Wrong Direction”, will be in the top 40 for a few more frames. Plus, a new album is coming from him later this year. We can’t let go of him quite yet, can we?
