I had to look back at this post Walk Off The Earth, craze, to see if these guys had been mentioned within Indi in 2011.
Now I don't personally recognize a lot of the bands mentioned above outside of The Sheepdogs who well broke out this year North America-wide highlighted by a timely article, and of course local all know Harlan, but having also read Ryans reviews, what in the opinions of the three of you's, had them on the edge but perhaps not as widely known at least in our circles, as bands mentioned within this article/comment thread?
I look back at their previous stuff and its great and their videos are great and their voices are great and they have this well developed YouTube channel and even their own funny puppets. As I said, it seemed they were just on the brink but seemingly good enough to be better knwon locally. Maybe they were? Just because I had never heard of them doesn't mean a darn thing.
Obviously the latest video is different in many making of a viral video ways from an already powerful and well-known original with 35M+ hits of its own and the guys and Sarah already had quite the following. Its evident that 3 of them have strong voices and the 5 together have great harmony. Then you have individually, this head-turning female voice and a tone not unlike Gabriel with a tremendous reach and even the guy far right has captured many comments of his own. He reminds me in his monotone stance (he must be the bassist),of the singer from the Crash Test Dummies' voice.
So its obvious in so many more ways than one why they will likely top 2012 lists, but it seemed they were already up there in the background for at least some of us.
