Best New Artists
Various styles, threads, and associations come together under the umbrella drink of Bokito’s Tropical Indie - a mash-up of dancehall, indie rock, soca, funk. Their debut single, Better At Getting Worse, is a fine example of the disparate elements working together seamlessly.
If Brooklyn based ambient drone-pop band Cigarettes After Sex aren’t the next big indie darling then I’ll eat my hat. With a full length LP on the way and a recent hike of millions of listeners on YouTube, the quartet stands more than a reasonable chance of being the next Beach House or XX.
There’s nothing we love more than to bring you the hottest new indie - pop - female vocalists out there today. Rotana is the newest in a long line of badass beautiful woman kicking ass and take names — if taking names actually means writing awesome songs that you can’t get out of your head even if you wanted to.

Especially if they’re as awesome as Soleima. This Danish pop princess crafts perfect tunes with the help of a variety of different genres.
