Rock duo from Brighton, for the contract to which, they say, was a small fight between the major labels. The contract went to Parlophone, and, therefore, from the songs of this group will be hard to escape in 2014. Another wholly-owned sign that the new year will be all right braytontsev: Arctic Monkeys drummer Matt Helders performs at concerts in t-shirt with the logo of Royal Blood.

Another group in which all was well in the past year, but that does not mean that more is not better. In 2013, the Temples, which represent the British response to the group Tame Impala, were the opening act for Mystery Jets, Kasabian and even the Rolling Stones.

The blue-eyed emo-pop of singer and songwriter James Page's remarkable (first) pleasant timbre of James touching trembling like an autumn leaf in the wind, and (secondly) skillful saundprodakshenom Charlie Andrew, who worked on the breakthrough debut of the group Alt -J.

As the collection of The Selector, to be a promising newcomer in 2014, it is necessary that your music has been thoroughly infected with the virus retro and reminiscent of the glorious sixties, seventies and nineties. Manchester rock band Findlay in its latest hit "Greasy Love" directly refers to rock standard "Do not Let Me Be Misunderstood", which is performed Animals and Joe Cocker. However, it's nice, they do not sound flirts with the era and sounds fresh - I must say thanks to the eminent producer Flood, who has worked with Depeche Mode and PJ Harvey. Pop blues "Greasy Love" guarantees Findlay, reminiscent of both White Stripes, Amy Winehouse and Lily Allen, hot touring summer 2014.

The rollers were as simple, and so irresistible: a languid groove Jungle fused in frame danced exceptional virtuosos - 6-year-old girl breakdancer and scooters duo in green jumpsuits.

8. MNEK

9. FKA Twigs

The girl with a porcelain face and porcelain voice attracted the attention of the music video for the song "Papi Pacify", which amounts to almost the same degree of eroticism as the famous poluzapreschennoe Madonna's video "Erotica". Nothing like this, however, the clip no FKA Twigs - crossed arms in still pictures, a lot of black and sequins. Erotic tension comes from the resonating voice Talia Barnett (Tahliah Barnett), which sings like Janet Jackson at a party at the Massive Attack, and its unblinking gaze puppet. The debut album of 25-year-old singer and dancer, has Jamaican roots, will be publishing label Young Turks, so it has all chances to repeat the success of the most famous groups of their roster - The xx.
