~ You have FIVE nominations, use them wisely~ all (eligible) nominated songs will advance to the main voting round

~ Your choices have to fit under the Indie/Rock/Alternative umbrella (in other words, any artist whose music would be posted/discussed in THIS forum) (mods reserve the right to veto certain tracks if deemed unsuitable x)

~ Your choices can be: any track released or promoted as a single in 2017 / any album track from a 2017 release / any track that reached its chart peak in 2017 (provided they don't clash with the rule below)

~ You can't nominate anything that featured in a previous edition (here's last year's list for reference)

I think Vera Blue should be fine, similar vein to Eves The Behavior who's in this forum and not a million miles from Marina/Lorde sort of thing! I'll change if not but didn't want all my nominations to be so obvious as Lorde laugh.gif

Alice Merton - No Roots
Imagine Dragons - Believer
New Politics - One Of Us
Portugal. The Man - Feel It Still
The Revivalists - Wish I Knew You

I think the only one up in the air is Alice Merton (maybe The Revivalists as well?) but other than that same strategy as last year. When in doubt, look at the US Alternative radio charts!
