♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥: Chasing Rubies by Harry and Alfie

I considered making hunk alerts for both Harry and Alfie, but I figured these guys are a more than pretty faces. Their covers are incredible and their originals even better. Here's my favorite so far: (it's taking me a while to get through all of them... yes, I'm actually attempting to watch all hundred-something videos they have up)
Release Date: May 26th, 2011
Length: 4:10
Location: Dublin, Ireland
Type: Original, unsigned

What Stephanie Thought: 
Obviously, they're European and all and have the musical talent.

I'll admit Alfie's (frontman, blond, stunning) voice takes a bit of getting used to. Instinctively, you don't listen to his voice and think it's really good. But it's actually just amazing. The way he sings also is a part of it. His facial expressions aren't only adorable; they express the passion he has for his music. I don't think I've ever heard any voice quite like it, and he can hit all the high notes without going falsetto, too. Brownie points for that. 

Harry's (brown-haired—'cause I feel awkward calling a guy brunette, stubbly, fantastically attractive) voice is more rumbly and mellow... but I'm falling in love with it. He mostly does harmony so it's difficult to really hear him solo, but if you skip to 3:32, he sings, "This is not déjà vu," by himself, and it just about melts your heart. Give it a play!

The Hudson-Taylor brothers make a nonpareil duo that really is something else. With their climbing number of YouTube fans, I know these guys are gonna make it big in no time :)

Radical Rating: 10 hearts: I'm speechless; this book is an extraordinarily amazingly wonderfully fantastically marvelous masterpiece. ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥

Music Giveaway!

Listen to their message at the end of the video for instructions on how to claim a free download of their studio-recorded song, "I'm No Superman" (which, I might add, is from my all-time favorite television show, Scrubs).

And check out their cover of the Matt Weddle version of "Hey Ya" (...also from Scrubs) because it's my new favorite song and that means it needs to be your new favorite song too.
