Drowned In Sound

Over the past 14 years, Drowned in Sound has established itself as “the first port of call for music obsessives” (The Observer). The site’s authoritative reviews and interesting interviews with everyone from Bjork to Paul McCartney have won many awards, whilst the irreverent community on the site’s forums have generated 5million different topics of discussion. We wanted an authoritative music publication to help shortlist the Best Breakthrough Act and Drowned In Sound was our first port-of-call.
