And The Winner Is…

2012HaimEB100912The fantastic, family three-piece ‘Un-folk’ band, Haim have been voted No. 1 in the BBC’s Sound Of 2013 countdown, closely followed by the brilliant UK duo AlunaGeorge.

I’m not surprised at all by the winners, although the BBC are almost a year late with their discovery of how truly awesome these Californian sisters are. It feels like it would have been more fitting to see them in the 2012 list instead, but then I guess we’d all call the BBC hipsters right…

It’s refreshing to see a genuinely decent band topping a list that may have the power to catapulte smaller artists into the ears of a much wider audience. Top stuff, and congratulations to Haim.
