Southern singer-songwriter Hayden Anhedönia, professionally under the alias, Ethel Cain, caught everyone’s attention with the release of her debut album Preacher’s Daughter last May. Hit single ‘American Teenager’ took social media by storm with fans waiting for more from the Southern singer. Since the release, she’s briefly toured and recently performed at Coachella weekend one. Her raw, raspy voice paired with heart wrenching lyrics on family and gender embrace gospel, dream-pop, and rock influences.
Beatrice Laus, under the name beabadoobee, is a Filipin-British indie-pop musician known for her bubbly music that resonates with young adults. Her fifth album, Beatopia, under DirtyHit, is full of inspiration from her childhood and whimsical dreams. Currently, she is supporting Taylor Swift on ‘The Eras Tour’ until the end of the month.
English singer-songwriter Holly Humberstone is last year’s winner of the Brit Award of Rising Star. She makes sleek, emotional music with such authenticity that it’s no wonder she’s a rising star. Her debut album, Can You Afford To Lose Me?, is vulnerable, unique, and tender accompanied by soulful melodies.
Nicole Zefanya, NIKI, is an Indonesian songwriter and music producer known for her introspective indie tracks with synth R&B elements. On August 12, 2022, NIKI released her second album, Nicole, under 88rising Records. Unlike her previous album, Nicole is a soothing yet nostalgic glimpse into NIKI’s early music career and high school days. The album’s vivid detail perfectly suits her dreamy voice and folk-pop roots.
Copenhagen-based experimental trio, WhoMadeWho, consists of Tomas Høffding (vocals, bassist), Jeppe Kjellberg (jazz guitarist), and Tomas Barfod (drums). In September, the trio released UUUU, an album inspired by 80s post-disco and electronica from the 90s and early 00s. Their songs are captivating, creatively electronic, and range from stripped instrumentals to organic soundscapes that mesmerize crowds. Since their inception in 2003, WhoMadeWho solidified their space in the electro-pop world with this 63 minute long record.
