BBC Sound Of 2016

With past winners like Adele, Sam Smith, HAIM and, um, 50 Cent the BBC Sound Of... list is usually a good indicator of future success and a pretty big deal for anyone who makes the list. Every year we get a longlist of 15 up-and-coming artists that is then narrowed down to a shortlist of 5 before the big winner is announced (on January 8th 2016). Here are this year's nominees & a playlist with a couple of songs from each of them.
