10 Bands To Watch For In NME’s Upcoming Awards Show


Awards shows in 2013 have been pretty formulaic. Yes, we love Eminem. We’re tickled by Miley’s inappropriate, hyper-sexual antics. We’re all smitten with Katy Perry. We all jam out to Arcade Fire and Daft Punk. But seeing the same people get the same awards over and over gets a little mundane. That’s why we were pleasantly surprised by NME’s set list for their upcoming Awards Shows in 2014. Taking place in London between February 2nd and 25th next year, the shows will feature both well-known indie rock headliners and practically unknown up-and-coming bands. Props to them for not succumbing to the temptation of including a huge name anywhere on the list.

This show will definitely expose a lot of people to dope new music, and we’re all about that. To whet your appetite for the upcoming shows, we compiled a list of 10 of our favorite tunes by bands NME is featuring. Enjoy!
