Sydney quartet The Jezabels run right up to Adele in this week’s ARIA Chart wrap.

The Jezabels have been very savvy in the lead up to their debut album, much like Kimbra, and it paid off today with a number two chart entry for Prisoner.

Predictably, country sensation Lady Antebellum snared fifth spot with Own The Night but The Jezabels weren’t the only indie act to made a surprise splash this week.

Brash and ballsy Adelaide hip-hop crew Funkoars debuted at number eleven with The Quickening and Swedish prog-death metal heroes Opeth hit number twelve with Heritage. The soundtrack the Pearl Jam’s Twenty  doco popped in at 14.

Further back, thrash legends Anthrax appeared at 35 with their comeback album Worship Music, then Bryan Adams with Bare Bones at 38, and God-bothering young pop-rockers New Empire hit 39 with their second album Symmetry.

On the back of a tour announcement, Jessie J’s Who You Are came back from 31 to 23. The Kooks slumped from 9 to 21 in their second week; same fate for Laura Marling who dropped from 12 to 26.

Dream Theater were the biggest surprise of last week, debuting at 17, but it’s no surprise that A Dramatic Turn Of Events plummeted to 41 this week.

‘Somebody That I Used To Know’ has gone quadruple-platinum and remains at the top of the singles chart. Otherwise, it’s more of the same there, the highest-debuting single being Nero’s ‘Promises’ waaaaaaay back at 38.
