5 Hot new artists for 2015

5 Hot new artists for 2015

With a new year, come new artists – but who’s going to be killing it at the top? We’ve had a little look into our musical crystal ball and conjured up a list of everyone we think is going to take this year’s music world by storm!  Take note, download and get dancing.



The Paramore of this year, PVRIS’s angst-y alt sound has wormed its way into today’s modern rebel. Currently supporting Pierce the Veil and Sleeping with Sirens on the second leg of their World Tour, this three-piece has come a long way since its humble beginnings in 2012. Their debut album hit the stores in November and caught the eye of many a celeb fan including Radio 1’s Ferne Cotton!

Must hear track: My House



A husky, deep male voice is just what we need to carry us through 2015 and we’ve found it in Kwabs. Not coming from the best of backgrounds, this artist has built themselves up from nothing to study Jazz at the Royal Academy, appear on TV, play at Buckingham Palace and collaborate with brooding, electronic producer SOHN. Not bad for the new guy, aye?

His talent for catchy rhythm combined with those anthem-esque pipes can only lead to a bright future. Look out Sam Smith, there’s someone chasing your heels…

Must hear track: Walk



Raury is a musician down to his core – even ditching college in favour of paving his own way into music. This jack-of-all-trades has dabbled in a fair few genres during his debut project “Indigo Child” with folk, rap and R&B making an appearance to name a few. With fans like Kanye West, Andre 3000 and SBRKT – he’s already making some pretty powerful waves.

It’s unlike anything we’ve ever heard and we’re sure it’s going to be big!

Must hear track: God’s Whisper


Jess Gylnne

Jess may sound familiar to some of you, having featured on countless tracks last year, but 2015 is the year she comes into her own! As well as featuring on Clean Bandit’s “Real Love” and Route 94’s “My Love”, she’s given us a teaser of her unbridled solo talent with her summer smash “Right Here” and we’re excited to see more.

This female’s got fight, so make sure you brace yourself for some powerful lyrics and catchy beats.

Must hear track: Right Here


Years and Years

Named the BBCs Sound of 2015, Years and Years were skyrocketed to the top of the charts with their awesome tune “Desire”. Their other two releases, “Take Shelter” and “Real” have only aided this trio’s climb to the top! Being on the music scene for three years already, Years and Years have a solid following that’s growing stronger by the day, gaining plays everywhere they go. “Real”, released in February last year has hit nearly 2 million hits on YouTube and streams on Soundcloud we just CANNOT WAIT to see what’s on the horizon this year.

Must hear track: Take Shelter
