Nominations for British Breakthrough Act

Looking at the nominees for British Breakthrough Act this year once again proves the strength of new, exciting and varied music emerging from the UK. But there can only be one winner at The O2 Arena, London, on February 19 from Bastille, Disclosure, Laura Mvula, London Grammar and Tom Odell.

Mvula and Odell have both graduated from being Critics’ Choice nominees a year ago – an Award the Another Love singer Odell won. After a strong 2013 which saw widespread support for both of their debut albums they have strong claims for this prize.

Another band that’s taken the music world by storm in the past 12 months is Bastille. Their debut album Bad Blood went to No. 1 in the UK charts thanks in part to some anthemic tracks like Pompeii, which has also been nominated for British Single, to add to further nominations for MasterCard British Album and British Band.

Meanwhile Disclosure’s brand of dance music has filled clubs and dance floors across the planet. They’re up for the same four Awards as Bastille, having worked with everyone from Critics’ Choice 2014 winner Sam Smith to legend Nile Rodgers, as well as Jessie Ware, AlunaGeorge and many others, quickly making the Laurence brothers one of the country’s most in demand production machines.

Stealing our hearts in 2013 – which won’t be for the last time – was the spellbinding London Grammar. Hannah Reid, Dot Major and Dan Rothman broke as an online phenomenon and will be hoping to take home a BRIT at their first attempt.
