Bit annoyed that Foxes misses out on the longlist, with Ella Eyre and Sam Smith i dud not know they could be on the longlist having featured on number 1 singles.
Also bit disappointed that there are not many bands in the longlist but still not a bad list.
Yes, a distinct lack of bands. I suppose they will do a top 5 again and I'd expect the more commercial, better known artists like Sam Smith and Ella Eyre to feature as well as BANKS (winner will probably be one of those 3).
There are some promising artists on the list but I always think an album is the true test and a better way of judging them. I like the sound of Jungle but judging by their soundcloud page
their songs could be a bit samey. The kid dancing in their video is great though
