BBC: Sound of 2010

The British Broadcasting Channel has released it's Sound of 2010. Basically a list of artists to watch in the coming year. It looks like a pretty good cast of completely unknowns to me as well as some up and coming stars. The bands on this list are must watch because if you read BBC's Sound of 2009, they hit the nail on the head with just about every artist. The list includes:
  • Daisy Dares You
  • Delphic
  • Devlin
  • The Drums
  • Everything Everything
  • Giggs
  • Gold Panda
  • Elie Goulding
  • Hurts
  • Joy Orbison
  • Marina and the Diamonds
  • Owl City
  • Rox
  • Stornoway
  • Two Door Cinema Club
I'll have to go ahead and knock off Owl City, they're pop, already mainstream, and sound like the Jonas Brothers. No Good. I have already posted on The Drums before, they are an afro-indie high energy band with a Smith-like sound, sure to impress in 2010. Everything Everything (pictured right) seems like a  pretty promising band, very eclectic and interesting. I'm excited to follow these artists and see what comes of them in the next 359 days.
