Next Big Hit?

As a radio station Music Director, I get sent a whole bunch of new music every day. Some of it I fall in love with personally (see MIDLAKE), others I think our listeners will get into, even if I don't love it myself. And then there are some tunes that just grab me and say "I AM GOING TO BE A HIT!" That happened last May when I heard Lorde's "Royals" for the first time. It happened last summer when I heard Arctic Monkeys 'Do I Wanna Know". And now it's happening again:

This is a band out of South Africa called Kongos - the song is "Come With Me Now" - and you're probably going to be hearing it everywhere soon...
