Before Music Liberation starts up again next week after our festive break, with our regular dose of new music album and single reviews, I thought we may as well throw our two penny's worth into the future tips for music types in 2010. Don't worry I'll be brief!
The Muscle Club - After releasing the well received EP "Fragmented Ideas From Young Lungs" and touring across the UK in 2009, this young indie pop band from South Wales should hopefully take the next step up the success ladder this year. The Muscle Club
Marina And The Diamonds - We first discovered Marina last March with the delightful "Obsessions", which showcased her infectious vocals and talent for a pop hook. Her debut album "The Family Jewels" will be released February 15th and big things are expected. Marina And The Diamonds
Turbowolf - Crazy thrash pop indie meltdown from Bristol's own Turbowolf. Expect epic solo's and satanic vocals interspersed with plenty of poppy hooks on their debut record which is out later this year. Turbowolf
Fenech Soler - Signed to the ever impressive Moda Music label, Fenech Soler took off last year with the release of single "Lies", and return in early 2010 with the equally catchy "Stop And Stare". Fenech Soler
Ellie Goulding - A relative unknown maybe 3 or 4 months ago, Ellie Goulding is everywhere now thanks in no small part to topping the BBC's tips for 2010. Her style of combining Folk with Pop is nothing new, yet there is something about her almost tentative vocals that draw you in. The real test is with "Lights" her debut LP which is out in March through Polydor. Ellie Goulding
George Lenton - A UK producer we have been tracking for some time, who was picked up last year on the BBC Asian network with a superb mini mix, along side some super remixes (One More Time) and the dubstep smasher "Troll", he could well be reaching this year. George Lenton
Casiokids - Everything we heard from Norwegian electro indie pop group Casiokids we absolutely loved last year, so we're very much hoping for the same level of awesomeness in 2010. Casiokids
Joy Orbison - One of the hottest producers in Electronic music right now, releasing the massive "Hyph Mngo" late last year to much critical acclaim. Little is known about this young 22 year old, but much will be expected from future releases this year. Joy Orbison
