7) The Line of Best Fit

“We’re a pretty big site with a large editorial team and around fifty contributors – writers, videographers and photographers. We run the site much more like a magazine and over nearly ten years we’ve transitioned into something that hasn’t lost sight of its ethos: to try and give a platform to new artists as much as possible, and to channel passion for music discovery into everything we do. I think holding onto that blog ethos is the most difficult thing for sites as they get bigger and bigger. We’ve never got bored of what we do and every new band we find reminds us why we do it.”
