There is an enormous amount of amazing music that comes out of the UK every year.

Yesterday that talent was celebrated with the 2014 Brit Awards, which was live-streamed across the globe. If you happened to miss it you can check out our coverage of the awards here, or you can listen to the winners playlist we've put together and revel in their victories.

Well deserved awards were taken home by the Arctic Monkeys who won Best British Group and British Album of the Year. The legendary David Bowie was awarded Best British Male Solo Artist, while Best British Female Solo Artist was won by pop star Ellie Goulding.

New Zealand's Queen Bee, Lorde, won the award for Best International Female Solo Artist and caused a little bit of a stir with her "priceless" acceptance speech.


Those acts and more feature in today's playlist, curated by entertainment reviewer Rachel Bache. Follow nzherald on Spotify for more playlists.
