British band featuring the vocals of Corrine Drewery. Never does the same music genre twice - they like to experiment. Very popular in Japan. Twice the size of average bands which sometimes prevents them from touring. Generally described as Chantese Jazz.

Popular songs:

Now You're Not Here (#1 International Hit)
Breakout
Twilight World
Some Enya fanboy: SOS is ok, but their sound is so synthesized. I like Enya better because she's got such a natural sound.

Swing Out Sister fanboy: You DO know that Enya is 100% synthesized, right? I mean even her vocals are enhanced by computer. She can't even tour because her sound is impossible to create outside of the music studio. On the other hand, SOS has a 10-peice band with all real instruments with one of the best keyboardists in the world.
