English synth-pop trio Years & Years have just topped the BBC Music Sound of 2015 poll, an annual list that predicts which acts will make it big in the year. Previous winners include artists Sam Smith, Adele and Ellie Goulding, so it’s safe to say the list is pretty accurate.

This is icing on the cake for the group, having had a remarkable 2014 with the release of three singles on top of gracing festivals across Europe and performing as supporting acts for artists like Sam Smith and Clean Bandit.

The trio behind Years & Years, Olly Alexander, Mikey Goldsworthy and Emre Turkmen, will be hoping to achieve even more success with their upcoming single, “King”, set to be released on March 1st. They will also be embarking on their first headline tour in the United Kingdom. Meanwhile, check out BBC‘s feature on them:
