There really are SO many incredible UK artists that are insanely talented. My favorite thing about music is that it comes from all over the world. Lately, I've been fixated on the talent from the UK. I can't wait until they make it big here in the US and can start touring around here. That'll be such a happy time for me! Check some of the incredible UK artists that I can't stop listening to. If you know about any others, comment about them, I love checking out new music!

1 Brother & Bones
There are no words to describe how much I love this band. I came across their song during one of my late night music raids on YouTube. They're absolutely fantastic! My favorite song, by far, is "For All We Know." I included the acoustic version so you can see how talented they are! Their EPs are out on iTunes, so if you like what you hear, make sure to buy a copy! They're just one of the incredible UK artists I can't stop listening to!
2 King Charles
I absolutely love this guy. He's got vocals, style, and an awesome stage name. He's one of the artists that I can't wait to break into the music biz here. He's had great success in the UK, and even has a song that features Mumford & Sons. That's pretty impressive if you ask me. I love this song, "Love Lust," but it's only one of the many fantastic songs on his EP!
I'm so glad that Bastille is finally making it here in the US! They've sold out so many shows all the over the place, including their two NYC shows! They recently performed as Saturday Night Live's musical guests, and sounded flawless. I can't wait for their second album to come out. They're definitely worth checking out if you haven't already!
I just recently heard about this band and I'm so glad that I did! They're awesome. I fell in love with their "I Knew You Were Trouble" Answer Cover! The lyrics are fantastic. Also, can I just mention how cute they all are?! They're getting some buzz here in the US and even performed at MTV's Artist to Watch showcase in LA. I can't wait until they start touring around here!
5 The Vamps
I'm obsessed with this song! It has such a feel-good vibe to it. The Vamps are a UK-based band that are hoping to break out in the US. If you ask me, I think they'll have no problem with that. I'll definitely be in attendance of any NY show they have. I dare you to listen to this song and not have the chorus stuck in your head afterwards.
6 Everything Everything
This band is just awesome. They've sold out their UK tour and I have my fingers crossed that they make their way here soon. Sigh. Sometimes I think I should just move to the UK! There'd be a concert I'd want to go to every weekend. Their song "Cough Cough" is very different than anything that's on the radio nowadays.
7 Gabrielle Aplin
I love this artist. She has such raw, genuine talent. Her lyrics are beautiful. I hope I get to see her live soon!
Well, there you have it! These are just 7 out of many UK artists that I can't stop listening to! P.S I'm aware that One Direction, and The 1975 are also UK artists.. I just decided to focus a bit on the less-known bands! Which bands do you think I should check out?
