10 Music Artists To Watch Out For In 2017

The past couple years have been impressive in the music department, and I have no reason to believe that 2017 will be any different. Music has always been my passion, whether it's older music or newly released music--it's always fun to dig some up as well as discover. However, since we are just a couple months into the new year, I thought it would be fitting to share some new and fantastic music that has been released by artists that you should definitely keep an eye on.

1. Milky Chance

A alternative folk group originating from Germany, Milky Chance has been on the radar for a few years now. They are probably most known for their song "Stolen Dance" which was a big hit a year or two ago. The band has a new album Blossoms coming out this March, and recently released a single from off the album called "Ego".

2. The Shins

The Shins are an indie rock band that have been around for about 20 years and have consistently put out great music. Some great songs you may recognize by them are "Simple Song", "New Slang", or "Caring is Creepy". They are set to release their fifth studio album Heartworms in March. The Shins have already released three songs off of this album, the most recent being "Mildenhall".

3. Marc Scibilia

Marc Scibilia is a singer-songwriter originally from Buffalo, New York. I was able to see him open up for one of my favorite bands back in 2015, and I had this gut feeling that I was going to be seeing his name again soon enough. Just a couple of weeks ago he released his new single "Summer Clothes" and since discovering it I have been listening to it nonstop. I cannot wait to hear more from him.

4. Mondo Cozmo

This indie/alternative musical artist is one that just started to make a name for himself in the last couple months of 2016. Mondo Cozmo is one of those artists that we do not know too much about yet we want to. His song "Shine" is getting respectable radio time recently and somehow manages to be constantly stuck in my head.

5. Bad Suns

Bad Suns has been one of my favorite bands for a while now, even if perhaps they are not too well known. I was lucky to have been able to see them in concert after the release of their first album Language & Perspective. One of the more popular songs off of that album you may know is "Cardiac Arrest". Just a few months ago, the band released their second album called Disappear Here. There are a number of great tracks on this record such as "Heartbreaker", and I cannot wait to here even more from them.

6. The Orwells

The Orwells are an American rock band that has been around for a few years now. Whenever I think of this band, I think of their song "Who Needs You" playing in a scene from the movie If I Stay. The Orwells just recently released their third album titled Terrible Human Beings. It is a pretty solid album that I was quite impressed with--a personal favorite off the album would be "Heavy Head".

7. Pinegrove

Pinegrove is a rock band from New Jersey that I have really gotten into this past month. Their most recent album Cardinal is fantastic with many incredible songs--my personal favorite being "New Friends". About a month ago, the band released a live album called Elsewhere, and all of the proceeds from the album, Pinegrove is donating to Planned Parenthood.

8. Elbow

Elbow is a rock band out of The United Kingdom and has been together for over twenty years. I had never really known much about them, but their song "One Day Like This" will always be an all-time favorite of mine. I was surprised when I saw that they released a new album in the beginning of February. The whole album, titled Little Fictions is a great listen. One of my favorite songs off of it is "Trust the Sun".

9. Future Islands

Future Islands has an interesting sound. They are an interesting blend of indie pop and synthpop. Their song "Seasons (Waiting On You)" off of their 2014 record Singles has always been a jam, so I was happy to see that the band is going to be releasing a new album titles The Far Field this coming April. They released a song off of it called :Run" and it did not disappoint.

10. Radical Face

Radical Face was a name that I would often hear of and recognize, but never be able to pick out a song by him. In reality, Radical Face has a lot of great songs and albums that he has released over the years. Just a couple of weeks ago, he released an EP titled SunnMoonnEclippse. It is technically three different songs, and each has their own distinct sound that is very much worth the listen,

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.
