BBC Sound of 2014 (The Longlist)

Good morning and welcome to 2014.

A month ago, "fifteen rising music artists have been named on the longlist for the BBC Sound of 2014, which showcases some of the brightest new acts for the year ahead". The list included Banks, Chance The Rapper, Ella Eyre, George Ezra, FKA Twigs, Chloe Howl, Jungle, Kelela, MNEK, Nick Mulvey, Royal Blood, Sampha, Say Lou Lou, Luke Sital-Singh and Sam Smith. The longlist will be narrowed down to a top five in the week of 6 January, with the winner to be named on 10 January. Right now, you can listen to all of them (3 songs each one), in this little Spotify playlist. 

Will they rule the newborn year? I don't know. But I can say that with their slow tempos, celestial voices and quiet atmospheres, they're working as a rather good soundtrack in the mist of New Year's Day hangover.


(from A to Z, 3 songs each artist)
