Sound of 2019

Post  misery guts on Wed Dec 12, 2018 8:49 am

Yes, it's already that time, as industry insiders start flogging next year's wares early.

Sam Fender won the Brits Critics Choice nod, even though he was on some lists for 2018 (he overcame Mahalia, and Lewis Capaldi to win).

The 10 names of the BBC's Sound of 2019 list have also been named:

Grace Carter
Flohio
Dermot Kennedy
King Princess
Mahalia
Ella Mai
Octavian
Rosalía
Sea Girls
Slowthai

Grace, Ella and Mahalia have all already had tentative hits in 2018.

The rundown was spread over this past week, and thus:

5 - Rosalia
4 - Slowthai
3 - Grace Carter
2 - King Princess
1 - OCTAVIAN! - the first rapper to win since 50 Cent in 2003, apparently.

BoxFresh - 2019 Spotlight
New year, new presenters, with Vick Hope replaced by Abbie McCarthy and Yinka Bokinni. They focussed on 4 acts they're tipping for big things this year:

Hrvy
Easy Life
Amelia Monet
Young T & Bugsey

Hrvy is a bland male pop singer who's had a few singles already. Easy Life are a new pop-rock band from Leicester. Monet did that song with Eo. The latter have had a couple of singles at the end of last year. I can well believe they'll do as well this year.

Fresh Focus: HRVY
Abbie did this one, H started doing covers on YT at the age of 12, then FB at 13. Personal was a big breakthrough hit. He claimed not to have a set plan for this year, just hopes of festivals and things. I was expecting a longer show somehow.

Fresh Focus: Amelia Monet
Abbie again. Amelia was on stage from the age of 8, spending 4 years in some show. She started using YT after Instagram started. She's proud in singing in her own accent. She had high expectations for this year. Baddest was her breakthrough moment. She was keen to prove she can sing and rap.

Lewis Capaldi is the first of these acts to break through big, as he's now #1 (helped no doubt by a video featuring "distant relative" actor Peter Capaldi)  Exclamation

Fresh Forward
March's edition features music from Kara Marni, and chats to Maverick Sabre (not in fact fresh at all), Lauv & Troye Sivan (ditto) and Madison Beer. Marni is the "fresh artist of the month" which is probably a fair assessment.

Fresh Focus: Kara Marni
The full edition as teased previously. Her sound is described as "Sade meets Sam Smith meets Amy Winehouse". She has 90s influences, like Lauryn Hill. She makes music in her garden shed. She attended the prestigious Brit School but didn't finish. She likes Dublin audiences, and plans a headline tour at the end of the year.
