The U.K. music scene is in rude health when it comes to new artists. The BRITs Critic's Choice award for 2018 has been won by Drake collaborator Jorja Smith, who also made the BBC Sound of 2018 shortlist, alongside singer-songwriter Rex Orange County, and MCs Not3s and Yxng Bane. Here at The FADER, we wanted to shine a spotlight on some of the even fresher, under-the-radar names who deserve your love. Here are the artists we discovered and loved this year, and whose 2018 projects we are dying to get our hands on.
