Hype List 2022

Hype List 2022: Wet Leg: "I still don't know what's going on, we've only got two songs out"

From the moment their single ‘Chaise Longue’ landed, there was little doubt that Wet Leg were instantly elevated to buzz band status. What’s followed is anything but ordinary.

Hype List 2022: Pip Millett: "I just write about my life"

Manchester’s Pip Millett has every sign of being one of the breakout acts of 2022. Then again, having already made her TV debut, sold out a UK tour and collabed with Ghetts, maybe she’s already most of the way there.

Hype List 2022: Hope Tala: “There has to be a bit of unexplainable magic”

West Londoner Hope Tala has been on our radar for a while now, but as 2022 comes around, and with co-signs like Barack Obama secured (yes, THAT Barack Obama) - it looks like her big moment is just on the horizon.

Hype List 2022: English Teacher: "The message of the music is 100% the most important thing"

Leeds indie newcomers English Teacher may only be just getting started, but they’re already starting to pick up attention in all the right places.

Hype List 2022: Lime Garden: "We're seeing people wearing our merch now"

Brighton’s Lime Garden have that certain something that leaves you certain that their future will be as bright as the citrus from which they take their name. Their smart, brilliant indie clatter promises much, and delivers everything.

Hype List 2022: Willow Kayne: "I'm surprised at how many people are actually listening to my ideas - even the crazy ones"

Only a few tracks into a promising future, and Willow Kayne already has a bloody Ivor Novello gong in the bank. Not bad going for a popster who has the personality to hit the top.

Hype List 2022: beaux: "What can I do that's fun and cool?"

Future popster beaux has a string of EPs behind him, and a new one just about to drop - but what really shines through his ambition to keep pushing things further beyond the music he made in his bedroom. What comes next could go anywhere.

Hype List 2022: Courting: "No famous bands have ever come from here; it's just us and The Beatles"

With live music back in full-flow and a new year round the corner, the future looks bright for Liverpool’s new favourite sons.

Hype List 2022: NOISY: "We hype people up and then piss off"

Southern trio NOISY have utilised 2021 to bolster their belt of bangers, and recent offerings suggest the next year will be huge for the sincere rock’n’roll ravers.

Hype List 2022: Pixey: "You've not heard my best songs yet"

After two delightful EPs in one chaotic year, dazzlingly expressive indie-popster Pixey shows no signs of slowing down.
