WSTRN - In2


I'm surprised WSTRN were chosen since they have a massive top 5 hit at the moment. Alessia Cara's Here is also massive in the US, I guess Radio 1 didn't put it on their main playlist so she could be part of the Sound of 2016.

Lots of interesting artists, NAO is definitely my favourite. I've seen Mabel a lot on Spotify, while Dua Lipa seems well promoted on Apple Music. Mura Masa has some good songs, while Section Boyz & Izzy Bizu seem interesting. Jack Garratt has some good songs, while I presumed J Hus was a novelty act (though I really like Lean & Bop).

I bet Halsey's UK label are panicking with her being left off this :lol: .

I've actually heard of a good deal of them this year.

Alessia Cara, Dua Lipa, J Hus, Jack Garratt, NAO and Rat Boy have all released good stuff so far!

Don't get why they nominated Alessia Cara.

I love lots of that list! I expect Jack Barratt or Dua Lipa to win. Great to see Mabel (Neneh Cherry's daughter) on there.

No one has made any comments about the top 5! I was so hoping Dua Lipa would be #1 and she doesn't even make the top 5 :-?

Predictable #1 in the end though that's not a bad thing

Jack Garratt is more Sound of 2015 to me though, he had a good year last year!

I thought Dua Lipa would win. Blossoms and NAO higher than I imagined, both are great though.

And where are they? :)
Alessia Cara (why she was in that list in the first place), Dua Lipa and Blossoms are semi-relevant, others mostly remained indie
