With spring here today, gone tomorrow, and summer (hopefully) on the way – we thought we’d flag up four blossoming babes on the fringe of British pop and on the brink of the big time that you’ll be playing come some sunshine.

i-D favourite Lady Leshurr (top left) has a staccato flow and verbal dexterity that’s breathtaking. If Busta and Kim had a brummy baby, this is what she would sound like. Syron (top right) has been working with London’s left of field pop-darlings MNEK and Amir Amor to frame her breathy soulful vocals to chilling effect. This skinhead with nailz is pop gold. Ronika (bottom left) works out of Nottingham and writes, sings and produces. Her 80s tinged pop bangers are as meticulously executed and glossy as her look. Mz Bratt (bottom right) is the beautiful protégé to Ms Dynamite. Her loyal fans, ice-cool delivery and model-hot looks could see her become Britain’s next rap superstar. Four soon to be superstars, catch them if you can.
