Eww Yaboo
Sugar Notch, Pa.
Sounds like: Indie pop with influences ranging from The Whispers to Graham Nash to Marc Ribot.
Fun fact: Their song “I'm Not Afraid” was featured in the independent movie “Forev” starring NoŽl Wells (now a featured performer on “SNL”). Also, the band has been recording at home for about four years now.

HighasaKite
Oslo, Norway
Sounds like: Indie pop — their orchestral pop sound is hypnotic with a balanced blend of entrancing synths and vocals.
Fun fact: Everyone in the band is an educated jazz musician from music academies in Norway. ōystein Skar and Trond Bersu come from the same tiny valley in Middle Norway.

Speedy Ortiz
Northampton, Mass.
Sounds like: Poetic noise rock — they are Pavement and Liz Phair's “new '90s” child. A combination of distorted guitars, catchy riffs, and honest lyrics create Speedy Ortiz's “signature abrasive clarity.”
Fun fact: It's highly likely that at least one member of Speedy Ortiz will make soup at each gas station stop on tour
