Every year around this time, BBC releases its “Sound of…”. It’s a list consisting of artists who will be doing big things in the upcoming year. “Sound of…” already predicted the succes of Sam Smith, Adele, Dua Lipa, Frank Ocean and many more. No wonder we’re always very curious who will be on the list.

BBC Music Sound of 2018 is here, and we must admit that the British DJs, critics, and broadcasters picked out some pearls. We already knew some of those on the list, like Billie Eilish and Sigrid. But we also discovered some new names and we are stoked to be hearing more from them!
