The group – Abigail Morris, Lizzie Mayland, Emily Roberts, Georgia Davies and Aurora Nishevci – are now the latest artists to pick up the accolade, months after winning their first ever award at the Rolling Stone UK Awards.

The band were presented with the award by their hero and past winner Florence Welch. They beat competition from the likes of Olivia Dean, Peggy Gou, Tyla and Elmiene who scored the top five spots.

The BBC Sound of Award is usually voted for by a panel of 140 industry professionals and artists.

Speaking about the accolade, the band said: “We are overjoyed to have won BBC Radio 1’s Sound Of Award for 2024! We predict amazing things happening in music this year and it is truly an honour to even be a part of it.

“BBC Radio has championed us and so many other young artists from the start of their careers, we still can’t believe it every time we hear one of our songs being played. Every artist who has been nominated or won over the years is such a powerhouse, it humbles us to join their ranks! Thank you to guitar music for never dying. Bands are back, baby.”
