As the new year draws closer, industry types and music outlets alike pick a bunch of acts tipped for big things in the coming year. And now Red Bull have devised their own version, covering a wealth of genres and sounds - the ‘Launched List’.
Last week, George the Poet, James Bay and DIY-favourites Years and Years were shortlisted as the final three for the Brits Critics’ Choice Award. So it’s unsurprising then, that all three also make an appearance on the Red Bull list.
Also among Red Bull’s ‘Launched List’ of 2015’s future stars, are; Dornik, Jack Garratt, Josef Salvat, Little Simz, Shura (pictured), Seinabo Sey and Wolf Alice.
Channel 4 are airing a special programme next month to coincide with the announcement, which will feature in depth interviews and performances from each of the artists.
BBC’s Sound of 2015 list is launched from tomorrow, 1st December.
