I tend to group them with Britpop.. It's just convenient considering their from Britain and the quality of their songs puts them in that category. But Wikipedia/Answers.com call them "post-Britpop"


And well, they won grammies under the best "Alternative Music Album" back in 2003 for the 2002 Grammy Awards. So Alternative music? along with Radiohead, Bjork & Sigur Ros?
