Real Lies, George the Poet, James Bay and more: the best new music stars of 2015

Rinse FM loves her, as does Radio 1. Holly “Låpsley” Fletcher is an 18-year-old graduate of Liverpool’s Institute Of Performing Arts, BBC Sound Of 2015 nominee, signee to XL and exponent of haunting, late-night post-xx electronic balladry. Her songs are intimate and intense, slow-motion and sad, minimalist but atmospheric, allowing her rich, mature voice to feature prominently in the mix, full of sorrow and a weary experience that belies her years. Also, like Polydor’s rising star Shura, Tālā, Cooly G, Nightwave and several others, Låpsley is a fully self-contained artist who doesn’t just write, sing and perform her material, but produces it as well. Paul Lester

Other female pop stars to watch: Shura, Soak, Rae Morris.
