Who? Georgia, Chalin and Cherish

What? Achingly ace girl group who’ve worked with Kate Tempest cohort Dan Carey and Blood Orange man Dev Hynes.

From where? South London.

What’s the story? This three piece are the pop act, everyone, literally everyone is allowed to like. From your leftfield east London hipster to chart loving grandparents, it’s almost impossible to deny the catchy appeal of their tracks.

Over the last 12 months, they’ve built up a steady stream of plaudits with a series of killer pop moments. Call You Out, Braindead and Burning Up have endeared them to Dazed and Confused and Noisey, showing off an amazing ability to marry their love for the classic hooks of Carly Simon and Destiny’s Child with a contemporary production sheen and polish.

Mini album Taste the JUCE is a winning introduction to the group who finished off the year supporting Basement Jaxx and inking a deal with Island Records. A proper, full length debut album is expected to be unveiled in 2015…

Sound like? All the best bits of the greatest female artists - TLC, Sade, Solange, ESG - distilled and filtered through a 21st century pop blender. They couldn’t be any cooler…

Predicted to? Take over 2015 by reinventing what girl groups are all about.

Must hear? (H)ours. Check the Kate Moross directed video below for top synchronised dance moves…
