1. Catfish and the Bottlemen
These guys are sort of new to the music scene, but bring a lot to the table. Their alternative sound is awesome and is definitely worth a listen This is the link to their song "Souncheck".
I discovered this band through a friend about two years ago and instantly fell in love with their unique and interesting sound. This is the link to their song "Electric Love".
3. Young the Giant
Although these guys have been around for several years, I don't feel they get as much recognition and attention that they deserve. Here is a link to one of their more popular songs "Cough Syrup".
I found a single song from this band about a year ago and gravitated to them after listening to more of their music. They have more of a techno yet alternative sound that is very calming. Here is the link to their song "Light Up". https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=udPibA85qUg
5. The Front Bottoms
At first when I heard one song by this band I was immediately turned on, but as I continued to listen to them I began to appreciate their music. They have a real different sound than most bands as well as interesting lyrics. This is the link their song "Cough It Out". https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_n-8iPfI-o4
6. The Strumbellas
I heard this song on the radio and felt their song was really catchy. Their song "Spirits" is just so fun you can't not enjoy it! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F9kXstb9FF4
7. Florence + The Machine
Florence has been around for a few years, but she's continued to burst out with new hits that everyone loves. I've been a fan of her's for years now, and after seeing her live I realized how her music effects her emotionally and spiritually. Here is a link to her song "Ship To Wreck". https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B9v8jLBrvug
8. Foster The People
Like Florence, Foster The People too have been in the alternative music scene for a few years. This fun band always puts on a great show and continues to wow their fans. Here is a link to their song "Helena Beat". https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ABzh6hTYpb8
I've heard a lot of mixed feelings towards Halsey, but personally her music is one of my favorites. I love her sound and the way she presents herself. Here is a like to her song "Colors". https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JGulAZnnTKA
10. Marian Hill
I discovered Marian at probably the strangest time in place. I was on a French exchange program, living in France, and trying to find some cool music to jam to and this is what I found! Here is a link to her song "Got It". https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8wjbY0Tyfr4
