2014's winner was Young Fathers for DEAD. Will this year be one of these...?

It will most definitely be one of the following.
Check out the list below and have a listen to their tracks.

Slaves - Are You Satisfied?

A solid debut from the duo - a lot of people were satisfied and it made it into the UK Albums Top 10.

Florence and the Machine - How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful

With tracks like Ship to Wreck and What Kind of Man, the Glastonbury headliner is a strong contender for the prize.

Jamie xx - In Colour

It's been a while in the making and In Colour has been widely acclaimed everywhere, with many collaborations and co-songwriting credits including Alicia Keys.

Wolf Alice - My Love is Cool

Another debut album, this time released in June. Wolf Alice have had a heck of a year, with countless features on 'Ones to Watch' lists.

ESKA - Eska

Gilles Peterson called her "one of the most important singers in the UK right now", with an impressive blend of folk, soul and even jazz.

Roisin Murphy - Hairless Toys

With a career spanning over 20 years, Roisin is known for her electronic sound and outrageously eccentric fashion.

C Duncan - Architect

So cool, he doesn't even need to use his first name. His classical background breathes a choral twist into his modern music.

Aphex Twin - Syro

He's already won a Grammy for Syro this year, and this is his first album since 2001.

Ghostpoet - Shedding Skin

His first album was also shortlisted for the Mercury Prize in 2011. 2015 could well be Ghostpoet's year.

Benjamin Clementine - At Least for Now

Benjamin Clementine developed his sound in Paris, and the result was an electrifying narrative debut album. He's also been named one of London's most influential people of 2015.

SOAK - Before We Forgot How to Dream

The Guardian called SOAK's music 'a vivid portrait of teenage deep-thinking.' It's a well-established sound from the teenager - what do you make of it?

Gaz Coombes - Matador

Gaz embarked on a solo career after band Supergrass split, and Matador is the well-received second album.
