There are of course hundreds of acts that are going places this year, but we reckon these guys are gonna stand out…
IYES: Brighton’s way more exciting answer to the xx.
BANKS: the American girl the producers wanna work with.
SOHN: dark, disturbing and gaining momentum like a wheel on a hill.
CHARLOTTE OC: she’s fit and has the voice equivalent of an olympic ballerina (if there is such a thing). This chick has it ALL.
FKA TWIGS: she makes awesome experimental beats, but she also looks freaky as hell, which probably contributes to her growing notoriety.
DIGITAL FARM ANIMALS: m83 meets Disclosure.
THE KITE STRING TANGLE: another amazing Aussie producer? Starting to think this nation are better at music than sport.
BIPOLAR SUNSHINE: if only all of the yoof of today thought like this London artist.
OSCAR KEY SUNG: he’s been kicking the Aussie scene in various guises, but 2014 is gonna be his year.
JUNGLE: sublime duo from London.
VANCE JOY: the folk act of the year.
