Producer Will Producer Will | 16:00 UK time, Friday, 4 January 2013


Fighting off fierce competition from the likes of Chvrches, AlunaGeorge and King Krule, Haim have been announced as the winners of the BBC Sound of 2013 – but for this week’s Now Playing we want you to pick the artist who you think is going to make an impact in 2013.

We’ve asked some of our friends in the blog world for their opinions, but what band, singer or producer have you been tracking and think is going to make a name for themselves in the next 12-months.

It could be:
• Brand new acts from your local area
• Huge names who are making a return in 2013
• Someone who has been bubbling under the radar for a while and are about to take off
