As is standard, we like to round off each year by handpicking a handful of artists who we feel are going to make a huge impression in the coming twelve months. In 2014, Temples reigned supreme, with Wolf Alice proving to be our most successful pick of 2015. 2016 turned out to be all about Nothing But Thieves, whereas Dua Lipa well and truly dominated 2017 in a way only she knows how. 2018 saw unrivalled success for IDLES and Tash Sultana, but what can we expect next year? Over the course of the last twelve months, we’ve put our heads together and selected 12 acts who we think are capable of pulling off great things in 2019. This is the All Things Loud Class of 2019, summed up by nothing more than their key track and three words. Because it’s about time that just the music does the talking, right?
