RaisedbyWolves2013

With the BBC Sound of 2014 arriving today, it’s a time for reflection on the year of music that was and a look ahead to the year of music awaiting us. Interestingly, of the fifteen acts on the BBC Sound of 2014 list; seven are solo male artists, five are solo females and three are duos. Bands, it seems, are out of fashion. You can find the full list at the BBC website here. Before that though, here’s my two cents on the 25 best songs of 2013. What do you reckon?
