BBC Sound of 2010

Post by Guest on Wed Dec 09, 2009 6:50 pm

BBC published its long list of the artists they expect to make it 'big' in 2010 on Monday. According to the beeb website

Fifteen of the best rising music stars have been named on the longlist for the BBC's Sound of 2010.

The list is designed to highlight the most exciting musical talent for the coming year and the artists have been picked by 165 UK-based tastemakers.

They each named their favourite three new acts and those with the most votes were put on the list. The top five and winner will be unveiled in January.

Little Boots, Adele and Mika are among the previous Sound of... winners.

The artists they have named are

Daisy dares you
Delphic
Devlin
The Drums
Everything Everything
Giggs
Gold Panda
Ellie Goulding
Hurts
Joy Orbison
Marina and the Diamonds
Owl City
Rox
Stornoway
Two door cinema club

You can hear the acts here if you so wish

I have only heard Delphic and Everything Everything before and wasn't particulary blown away. Having said that last years list was

The Big Pink, Dan Black, VV Brown, Empire of the Sun, Florence and the Machine, Frankmusik, Kid Cudi, La Roux, Lady GaGa, Little Boots, Master Shortie, Mumford & Sons, Passion Pit, The Temper Trap, White Lies

And I ended up with 9 of those albums


In my opinion it is a bit of a con really as it just means that the winner will be guaranteed to have a spot on the "A playlist" on bbc radio just so Auntie are right. But has anyone heard any of the list or have any other reccomendations for 2010?

I've heard of Delphic, Ellie Goulding, Joy Orbison and Stornoway. Can't bring anything by them to mind though.

I've heard of Giggs, but I can't think where from... scratch

The rest are a total mystery to me.

Lol Rob, trust you to find an alternative to Ryan Giggs Wink

Can't say I have heard of any of them but the band name Gold Panda is utterly awesome. They have my vote.
