The two Irish bands feature in the long-list for the BBC Sound of 2013 poll...
Up and coming Dublin band Kodaline and fellow Irish rockers Little Green Cars are among a long-list of 15 artists tipped for potential stardom in 2013 by the BBC.
They feature alongside various acts from the UK and the US including Brooklyn rapper Angel Haze and one of the buzz bands of the moment Palma Violets. The biggest surprise on the list is probably the inclusion of The Weekend. Canadian Abel Tesfaye's experimental r'n'b work as The Weeknd has already featured in end of year best of's on both sides of the Atlantic for the last two years, so to label him as "one to watch" seems a little strange.
Michael Kiwanuka topped last years poll, with Azealia Banks and Frank Ocean also making the cut.
We're delighted for Kodaline and Little Green Cars though. Let's hope they both have amazing years.
The countdown for the Top 5 will begin from January 2.
