    I haven't really got much to go on.
    They've play on 'Later with Jools Holland' about 12-18 months ago, maybe a little more.
    There's about five of them.
    The songs are haunting and the singer sings in a slightly high pitched way.
    They had a big hit about 18 months ago, maybe a little more.

    If you can answer this one, you're good, damn good.
    I hope someone can.
    Thanks

    The only bands that immediate spring to mind (based on the 'haunting' description) are LAMBCHOP and CALEXICO.

    Neither of them have had a big hit, so probably not...
