We’ve always aimed to bring an eclectic coverage of music at Real Gone. We’ve always insisted on mixing genres and covering bigger bands we love alongside some really underground DIY releases.

Before we set off, though, here’s a quick look forward. There will be a lot of musicians either coming up through the ranks or making their first important musical statements throughout ’18 and – as always – we’ll do our very best to champion some of the more interesting but, in the meantime, here are our five picks most hotly tipped to either make the leap to bigger things or release favourite tracks.
