The NME stars to go global: Palma Violets

After winning NME's song of the year for their rousing, hook-laden Best Of Friends, this London four-piece are set to take over from where The Vaccines and Howler left off. They holed-up last year in their Studio 180 creative space playing impromptu gigs, and with singer-guitarist Sam Fryer and bass-vocals Chilli Jesson's dual-frontman pairing, the Violets (completed by Pete Mayhew on keys and Will Doyle behind the kit) have laid their roots. Debut 180 is ready to hit in February.

The new sister act: Haim

These three sisters %u2013 Este, Danielle and Alana %u2013 from California are purveyors of pop-influenced blues-rock. They used to play gigs with their parents %u2013 and still occasionally do, bless them %u2013 and take influences from a wide range (think Led Zeppelin to Britney Spears). These gals have cross-genre appeal to burn. Watch them soar.

The new Interpol: Savages

Or, rather, the new Joy Division. This all-grrl post-punk quartet takes their cues from the likes of Ian Curtis, Sigur Ros and early My Bloody Valentine on their atmosphere-drenched double A-side single Flying To Berlin and Husband. A moody, literate troupe who have been bashing out tunes together for less than a year, having played their first show
as one back in January 2012.

The new singer-storyteller: King Krule

This ginger 18-year-old south Londoner %u2013 real name Archy Marshall %u2013 has turned heads with spiky lyrics and mournful delivery of his street smart new wave songs and stories, fusing elements of Joe Strummer, Jamie T and Plan B into a groove of his own.

The solo star: Tom Odell

Ditching the acoustic guitar in favour of a man at the piano approach, this Chichester-born solo star in the making (right) is hitting all the right notes. The 22-year-old's been writing songs for the best part of a decade already, signed a deal after just four gigs and has drawn comparisons to Jeff Buckley. Lofty but deserved praise.
