Haimed have topped the BBC Sound of 2013 poll.

The list, chosen by music industry tastemakers across Britain, aims to predict which emerging artists will enjoy a fruitful 2013.

Californian three-piece Haim have reigned supreme in this year's list and they took to Twitter to express their delight at the award, saying:

"Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! So excited/honoured to have won the BBC sound of 2013 poll!!! We kinda can't believe it.... xo."

BBC's Huw Stephens meanwhile praised the band's songwriting talent, proclaiming:

"Haim have an unapologetic passion for music that shines in their songs. They're brilliant musicians who have a real talent for tunes that merge their tales of growing up in the 21st Century with a classic songwriting ability."
