We’re nine days into the New Year, the big 2015, and we thought it was about time we mentioned some artists we’re keeping our eye on veeeeery closely in the forthcoming months.

George Ezra

Well, George Ezra is starting his year with a sold out tour come February and performing at his first festival of the season in April at Coachella, all at the ripe old age of 21. Being one of Spindle’s artists of 2014, here hoping that his big and bluesy voice is going to carry us through 2015 like a dream.

James Bay

Gravelly voice, upbeat melodies, discovered after a fan uploaded footage of him performing in a pub; James Bay is now about to embark on a UK tour with his debut album, ‘Chaos and the Calm’, released in March. Bow down to Bay.

Deptford Goth

Deptford Goth’s voice echoes angelic-ness, which stands in perfect juxtaposition to his name. New album ‘Songs’ was released in November, and what beautiful songs they are. Fingers crossed for a tour…

Eliza and the Bear

Their debut EP ‘Light it Up’ really did light it up. The band have been in the studio across the pond working on their debut album solidly since their UK tour ended. It’s safe to say it’s pretty anticipated here in the Spindle studio.

Youth Club

Now Youth Club may have only entered our periphery this Christmas, but they came in and shone like the star on top of the tree. The band’s second EP ‘Brothers’ is out on February 1st and we’re counting down those 24 days…

Years & Years

The guys have just released a new single, ‘King’, and with a sold out headline tour coming this March (gutted for anyone who hasn’t got tickets yet) 2015 is the year for Years & Years.

Native People

These guys are another band who have come to light in 2014 and are promising bigger subsequent things this coming year if latest track ‘One’ is anything to go by. Plus, they’ll be performing a bunch of headline shows in some new cities in the coming months.


Kodaline blew us out the water with their ‘High Hopes’ EP and their debut album, ‘Coming Up For Air’, is released a month today. Waiting for more beautiful tracks by this Irish band is agonising but it’s bound to be worth it.

Don Broco

It’s about time that Don Broco released a full-length album, lead single ‘Money Power Fame’ from the ‘Title TBC’ debut album is catchy and promising. They’re also headlining the Kerrang tour starting next month. Everything’s coming up Broco.


Prides have been named as ones to watch in 2015 by a few now, and it’s clear why with their latest single ‘Out Of The Blue’. They’ve got a February tour sneaking up and let’s just say, Prides are going to do us proud, I’m sure of it.

Jamie T

Jamie T is one of those artists who you thought peaked with ‘Sheila’ but oh no, how wrong you were. 2014 saw Jamie T come back and now he’s nominated for 7 NME awards and embarking on an Australian/European tour. But not the UK… Yet… (We say hopefully).

Twin Peaks

Twin Peaks, once again – the band not the TV show, were in Spindle’s musicians of 2014 and it seems they’re taking the UK by some sort to peaky storm as they come back in February searching for more wild onions to play in London.


2014 saw the release of alt-J’s second album ‘This Is All Yours’ and January 2015 will see them play a sold out gig at London’s O2 Arena. And if that isn’t coming on leaps and bounds from singing about Maths and Matilda then I don’t know what is…

Wolf Alice

Wolf Alice are another band that has been tipped by many for great things in 2015, and starting if off supporting alt-J at their O2 gig seems like setting off on the right foot if you ask me. I’m crossing everything poss for a full-length this year…

Catfish and the Bottlemen

After releasing their debut album this year, Catfish and the Bottlemen are starting their year with an Australian, American and Canadian tour come the end of this month. Don’t worry; they’ll be back in the UK for March. Even they themselves have said, “2015 is going to blow last year away”.


Hinds, previously called Deers, are a girl band from Spain holding as much promise as a shooting star on a dark night. Deers are providing girl anthems for all those 2015 hunnies out there and Spindle are supporting them wholeheartedly.


Another artist who was in our music highlights of 2014, the Irish Hozier has an even brighter looking 2015. With an album out this month and performing at Coachella in April he is definitely one to keep at least one eye on.


In 2014 Superfood acted as a way to curb your 90s nostalgia, but going into the New Year, they’re so much more. Debut album ‘Don’t Say That’ is directed at those saying they’re a 90s band… and that is a fact that I totally made up. Remember to get your five Superfood(s) a day.

Tame Impala

They’ll be at Coachella come April + a string of other festivals across the pond, and there has been promises of ‘work in progress’ due to be released in 2015, we at Spindle are on the edge of the seats for this.
