Ours..Who are they?

I've been hearing talk about this band called Ours but havent heard any of their songs.Some fans on a Jeff Buckley board are raving about them.
Can someone fill me in and tell me the names of some of their tunes?
Am I totally out of the loop?

try some tracks like:

Dancing Alone (my fav)
Here is the Light
Sometimes (popular US single)

I don't know, hopefully some other people will give you a better perspective, I bought the cd last year and wasn't that crazy about it, I really dont listen to it, sorry, it's really nothing at all like Jeff Buckley (though at times the singer sounds like him that's as far as it goes)

I really like Ours' "Distorted Lullabies" album, but I agree that it's not like Jeff Buckley. His voice sometimes sounds like Buckley's, and I think that's where the similarities come from. Anyway, if you listen to "Sometimes," it will probably sound familiar to you. It was one of those MTV2 Handpicked things. The album is a lot darker than Jeff Buckley, but I think that the lead singer and Jeff Buckley knew each other, which is another reason Buckley fans like Ours.

Even though they only have one album out so far, if you don't count the demo made in 1993 "sour", I'm a huge fan!!

I can't wait until the new album in september!!

His voice is the perfect amalgamation of Jeff Buckley on the high end, and Bono/Thom Yorke on the lower ends. Amazing and chilling!

I only know the one song they were playing the vid for on MTV2 but I've been interested in them since then. Just take forever to buy cds

the singer does sound like Jeff Buckley and that's about all I really know
