There is a number of acts that we are just absolutely certain are destined for big things next year, albeit there are varying levels of success a band can have, but here is who we think is set to climb the ladder in one way or another in 2017:
The Night Cafe:
The Liverpool 4-piece have gained many suitors this year, recently heading on a national tour, 2017 will no doubt be a groundbreaking year for a band with a great live reputation.
Glass Peaks burst on the scene in early 2016 with nothing more than a teaser video, since then they’ve hit a number of festivals, released their debut single and packed out the Camden Assembly. Expect more of the same in 2017.
Somewhere between Frank Ocean and Drake lies Jahkoy. The Toronto based RnB starlet has already released tunes with Schoolboy Q and other big names as he breaks America, the UK is next..
Punk is on the rise, and leading this rise with their unique take on the genre is Sisteray. 4 lads from London making the music they love, they headline Club CloseUp on Feb 24th as their year will only continue to get bigger and bigger.
In the last 6 months, Clay have taken the country by storm. Selling out dates on tour after tour whilst releasing some of the best indie/pop music of the year, Clay have all the potential and the know-how to be 2017’s success story, as well as 2016’s.
Another Leeds act who’ve taken the UK by storm in 2016 is Marsicans. The 4-piece have performed nationwide to much acclaim, and with their ‘Absence EP’ gaining nothing but high praise, what will 2017 bring for Marsicans?
