Californian pop trio Haim is tipped for big things this year (13) after topping a Bbc list of emerging talent.
The singing sisters, who have supported British artists Florence + the MAChine and Mumford & Sons, landed first place on the Bbc Sound of 2013 rundown.
A post on the band's Twitter.com page reads, "Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! So excited/honoured to have won the Bbc sound of 2013 poll!!! We kinda (sic) can't believe it..."
Previous acts to top the list include soul sensation Adele and pop star Jessie J.
