Courtney Barnett – The Double EP: A Sea Of Split Peas

Courtney Barnett

There’s an online surge going on at the moment for all things Courtney Barnett.  Whilst she didn’t make the longlist for the BBC Sound of 2014, that didn’t stop her topping the Billboard Next Big Sound Chart last week.

If you feature as one of the 15 fastest accelerating artists online during that last few weeks, it means that you are doing something right as major global social music sites are going bananas for you and you are statistically predicted to achieve future success.

If you take a look at the last 90 days online for Courtney Barnett, in the last week her plays have almost gone off the chart!  Now that’s an online fever!
