“New Me is one of my favourite songs I’ve ever written and I’ve been excited about this one for a while. We’ve all made bad decisions at the end of a relationship and New Me is about embodying a whole new mindset and finding the strength and self-worth to cut off a toxic situation.”
Huge pop track from Ella Eyre. Love it.
A massive pop number from Ella Eyre.
It’s no shocker that Ella Eyre has come second in the BBC Sound of 2014. It’ll be interesting to see where her career heads to over the coming months but I’m pretty sure she’ll be big in the UK.
Tomorrow we find out who the winner is. Judging by how much RnB has influenced this year’s poll, I’m guessing it won’t be a rock act. But who knows…
Tipped to be one of the standout stars of 2014, Ella drops a new track that plays with 90’s soul and current beats.
I wait all year to see this list get published. Only because it’s interesting to see how many people have already been featured on here.
This year’s mix is a lot better than last year’s in my opinion, and is definitely more pop-orientated than previous ‘Sounds of’. Here’s the full list:
- Banks – first featured February 2013
- Chance The Rapper
- Ella Eyre – first featured April 2013
- George Ezra – first featured December 2012
- FKA Twigs
- Chloe Howl – first featured December 2012
- Jungle – first featured September 2013
- Kelela – first featured October 2013

- Royal Blood
- Say Lou Lou – first featured May 2012 (as Saint Lou Lou)
- Luke Sital-Singh – first featured July 2012
- Sam Smith – first featured January 2013
The top 5 will be revealed daily starting 6th January 6th 2014, with the winner crowned on the 10th. I’m not putting any guesses on who will win this time round though!
Visuals for Ella Eyre’s new track. If you’re in London, catch her first ever headline show on November 28th at Notting Hill Arts Club.
What a voice! The voice behind the number 1 Rudimental single ‘Waiting All Night’, Ella’s bracing herself for solo invasion. Check out here.
