The BBC Sound of 2011 list which was mentioned a couple of weeks ago, has now started to count down the Top 5 Artists, discussing one of the five each day in more depth. Head here to see how that shortlist is now forming and also read interviews and watch videos of the acts.
I reckon James Blake or Daley at 2 and Jessie J at Number 1.
edit: Not that I agree with that at all, but I can imagine the BBC going for that kinda thing. Either way I think it's almost certain Jessie J will be number 1, she's already won the BRIT Award for Critic's Choice.
Nero have been going for years too. Their sound has gone more mainstream over the last couple of years though, not that that's a bad thing. It's not about how long they've been around though, it's about who's going to breakthrough. Sharks are great, big shame they ain't on it, not that this list will dictate all music for the next year, it does provide a stepping stone though. Loving The Vaccines and Wretch 32. Not heard any of the others yet, don't think I have anyway.
Sharks have been going for a while, not really a new artist, mind you that said Mona have been together since 2006, so i take that back!
Seen Sharks a couple of times support Gallows and Gaslight, they do a good Clash imitation.
Yeah was gonna say, they're not any older than Mona I don't think, and they're gonna get big this year. I think they're a little more than a Clash imitation, have you heard their version of Brassneck by The Wedding Present? Sublime.
