Day 94 BANKS – Waiting Game (UK Blog Sound of 2014 Special)

The UK Blog Sound of 2014First published in 2011, The Blog Sound Poll’s original concept wasn’t to criticise the established BBC Sound of list, but simply as an experiment to see if UK music bloggers could come up with its own list of emerging artists that was more representative of their community and give the artists that were nominated some extra publicity. Now in its third year, this year’s list has been established by 59 UK based blogs including quite honourably, mydaybydaymusic. Although only one of my three votes made it onto the longlist (RHODES), five of the sixteen contenders have been featured on this blog in some way over the past year.

The full list is as follows…


– Embers

– George Ezra

– Hella Betta Dancer

– Hockeysmith

– Honeyblood



– Lyla Foy

– Marika Hackman

– Mt. Wolf

– Royal Blood


– Sivu

– Sophie Jamieson

– Wolf Alice

The act with the most votes and the runners-up will be revealed on January 2nd; in the meantime, make sure you listen to BANKS, the only non-British artist on the list, and her intense SOHN produced single Waiting Game.
