Update: Hottest 100 of 2018 has begun – Live updates are here

With Hottest 100 voting now open and early predictions coming in, triple j has hit up a bunch of its favourite local acts to see which tracks they’re voting for in this year’s countdown.

Aussie metalcore heroes The Amity Affliction have sung the praises of Architects’ song ‘Hereafter’, the first single from their first album since the death of founding member Tom Searle.

“We know Tom Searle would be proud,” the band told triple j. “Absolute banger.”

Elsewhere, Amy Shark, Alison Wonderland and Ruel all voted for BROCKHAMPTON’s ‘TAPE’, while the likes of Matt Corby and Wafia gave the nod to Childish Gambino’s ‘This Is America’, which is looking like it will likely place in the top five.

Brother-sister duo Angus & Julia Stone voted for Mallrat’s ‘Groceries’, with Julia telling triple j, “I’ve always thought that going to the supermarket to get your groceries when you’re falling in love really quantifies what love is about… that you can do something so mundane with somebody, and it feels like the most exciting thing in the world.”

Meanwhile, producer Golden Features voted for ‘Wasted’ by his former housemates Peking Duk.

“I can’t explain what it is that sets them apart but all I can say is they’re gifted,” he said. “‘Wasted’ is undeniable, love to them both.”

You can find a list of selected artists’ votes down below, and the full list at the triple j website.

Voting for the Hottest 100 of 2018 will close at 9am AEDT Tuesday, 22nd January 2019, before the countdown takes place on Sunday, 27th January.

The Hottest 200 will follow on Monday, 28th January, which will be observed as a national public holiday in 2019.

Kendrick Lamar claimed first place in the Hottest 100 of 2017 with his huge hit ‘HUMBLE.’, becoming the first person of colour to top the countdown.
