The sound of 2010?
The BBC has unleashed a longlist of bands they expect to make an impression in 2010. There are 15 artists touted for inclusion on their “Sound of 2010” list, including Irish band Two Door Cinema Club, Marina & the Diamonds, Joy Orbison, Delphic, The Drums and Stornoway (see New Music, p5). Little Boots won the accolade this year. The list will be announced next month.
