Today is the day that the BBC announce there Sound of 2012 longlist. It’s a pretty exciting day for anyone who follows all the ‘Next Big Thing’ hype. This year, a bunch of us bloggers, have decided to put together our own list of who we think will be big in 2012, then you can compare it and we can see who ends up being right. Bloggers voted who they think will be the Sound of 2012, and this list was compiled based on the bands with the most votes.
There will be a post coming later today about the BBC Sound of 2012, and my own predictions for next year will start after my albums of 2011 series ends. So here’s the longlist (in no particular order!).
Lianne La Havas
The Good Natured
