Radio One’s Hottest Record of the Year 2021

Thoughts on this list?

I have heard one (Sam Fender) which feels about right demographically.

7 good songs on there. Not bad considering who produced it

Anz is the winner close the thread


In my opinion out of the ones I know I would rate them as…

  1. Wolf alice
  2. Charli xcx
  3. Little Simz
  4. Sigrid
  5. Sam Fender
  6. Griff

I don’t think I’ve heard it.

Fair play to Frank Carter like

Yeah just played it. I know it but never knew who it was. It’s a good track.

Also George Riley should be a massive star. Her mixtape thing from this year was awesome.

And as great as that Anz tune is, it’s only her 2nd best this year. Massively hopeful her Spring / Summer tape pops up on Bandcamp tomorrow.


haven’t heard any of them, where do i collect my indie points?


Anz, Kojey, Pa Salieu and Little Simz would all be surprisingly good winners if it goes that way.

Even Wolf Alice had a minor return to form this year.

Wouldn’t fancy trusting the listeners though.

TBH he’s nothing without the Rattlesnakes.

I’ve heard of 7 of the artists!

Think I actually like Last Before Lights best (by Anz that is)

The only one I’ve knowingly heard is Fred Again, which is so bad that I’d think it was a parody were it not for the people involved. Mad seeing people like Anz and Paul Woolford crop up on a list like this.

Mad in what way?
