In no particular order, here’s 10 artists I suspect will be popping up both in the press and festival circuit this year. Get acquainted now and keep an eye out for these artists on the rise.
Dance pop at its finest, Avan Lava puts the spice back in music with energetic songs and hyped up live shows. Can you say neon, confetti, inflatables and (most of all) dancing? Expect to see them blow up this year in response to their electric release, Flex Fantasy.
Rhythm? Check. Attitude? Check? Party Rock? Yup. This Brooklyn-based band delivers the goods with mean beats that make you want to move. They released their debut EP, Headlines & Firefights via Mother West Records in the fall, and our set to take over with their irresistible sound. Don’t take my word for it though, see for yourself when Cold Blood Club headline Highline Ballroom on February 10th.
After some delay, Charli XCX’s debut album finally arrives this year. An edgy look and sound has everyone hooked on this Brit who’s awesome mixtapes and singles have kept hungry fans at bay. With big things in the works, Charli XCX is ready to make waves on both sides of the ‘pond’.
The Neighbourhood’s debut album drops in March and follows their EP, I’m Sorry, which got them signed to Columbia Records. Their R&B influenced indie-rock has a cool vibe reminiscent of Foster The People. Expect fans to flock.
Intoxicating and fervent, Rhye proves teasing pays off. With one single, “The Fall” and barely any information or photos to be found of this mysterious artist, music fans are waiting with baited breath to discover more.
