A pair of U.K. acts is starting to make some stateside waves.

Veteran singer/songwriter David Gray and multiple VMA nominees Florence and the Machine are the latest entries in HITSVibe-Rater chart of bands developing a buzz in the marketplace.

Gray’s The Foundling, his second album for the Mercer Street/Downtown Records label, isn’t in-stores until August 17, but the first single, “A Moment Changes Everything,” is already #1 Greatest Gainer at Triple A, with airplay at WXRT, KMTT, KTCZ, KPRI, KBCO, KINK, KGSR, WRLT and others. He begins a much-touted shed tour with Ray LaMontagne that starts Aug. 15 through Sept. 12, with appearances on CBS Morning Show Concert Series (8/20) and the Tonight Show (9/9) lined up as well.
