SXSW 2017 2017-03-14
Native Young Cape Town SOUTH AFRICA4.33 3.25 They say they're "African indie electronic pop". It's about as spot on as any of our descriptions. I'd add in "with a unique male falsetto vocal".
Now, Now Minneapolis MN4.33 3.70 Indie rock that keeps inside the pop realm. Reminds me a bit of The Cranberries and more recently, Wolf Alice.
NVDES Los Angeles CA4.33 3.90 Fun, light and energetic indie pop. Every single song is a dance party.

Coucheron Sandvika NORWAY4.25 4.10 It's that type of electronic uplifting jam music that makes everyone at your party secretly pull out Shazam.
Hurray for the Riff Raff New Orleans LA4.17 3.95 Old timey folk music with strong female vocal lead.
Banks Los Angeles CA4.17 2.60 Down-temp electronic with hints of pop and a female vocal that's smoky, sexy and dark.
