Near the end of each year, the BBC compile a list of new and up and coming bands, hand-picked by 165 people dubbed as 'tastemakers' and put together in a competition-like voting system that sees the the top five winners of fifteen bands eventually named and applauded at the start of next year.
This year, the fifteen contenders span a diverse amount of music and genre's including Delphic, Two Door Cinema Club, Marina And The Diamonds, The Drums, Owl City and Giggs. It seems variety is the order of the day.
Below you'll find fifteen individual and rather complimentary videos for each of the chosen bands. That way, you can make your own mind up as to which five you think are the most worthy.
