1. One-woman army Clare Bouchers is an eclectic mix of styles which she herself describes as “ADD music”  it shifts frequently and dramatically – “I go through phases a lot.”

2. Brooklyn-born Quintet “One moment it’s indie-pop, the next it’s mutant funk, then disco – something that sounds only of itself, even as the echoes of the past flit through the songs.”

3. The Howler boys are inspired by 1960’s pop music, they have been noted- “2012’s answer to The Strokes – expect a very successful year from this lot.”


This is the first list article I have ever done. To get myself started, I decided to research into current articles which used list articles. This helped me gain an understanding of the content needed to describe information in brief, snappy ways. Writing for online journalism is becoming a lot more familiar to me and I am enjoying finding this new and exciting way of writing in the style of an online journalist. The information I found for each band was quite vast which gave me variety to sift and sort to choose appropriately the information to use in this brief sample list article.
