BBC Sound Of 2010 Longlist Unveiled

January 8, 2010 by  

The BBC have set out their vision of the movers and shakers in the music industry this year. And to those of you who visit us regularly, it’s not a total surprise!

Auntie’s tips for the new year are as follows:

Daisy Dares You: Sixteen-year-old bubblegum punkster.

Delphic: Manc electro-shoegazers. We like them too!

Devlin: Essex born rapper, one of the big new noises on the grime scene.

The Drums: Another favourite of ours, The Drums will be massive this year.

Everything Everything: Art School Indie band citing Radiohead and the Beatles as chief influences.

Giggs: South London rapper who was sentenced to two years in prison for gun charges.

Gold Panda: Japan-obsessed producer and remixer with a passion for distorted sample and warm beats

Ellie Goulding: Another of our tips for the year, Ellie is possibly the most promising musical talent around at the moment.

Hurts: Another Manc electro act, this sharp suited duo made the list despite not having released any material or even played a gig.

Joy Orbison: Croydon’s hottest dance producer, his sound is an mix of house and garage.

Marina and The Diamonds: Yet again we seem to agree with the Beeb. Marina Diamandis is quirky, spiky and very memorable indeed.

Owl City: Singer and producer whose single “Fireflies” reached the top of the US charts in November.

Rox: Half-Iranian, Half-Jamaican. All soulful. Roxanne Tataei is likely to be tagged “This Year’s Amy”.

Stornoway: Oxford folk-lite five piece whose single “The Good Fish Guide” highlighted the importance of ethical fish eating. Hmmm.

Two Door Cinema Club: The Bangor art-pop group have recruited a drummer to energise their live performances, and look set to progress this year.
