Since a lot of bands and solo artists are becoming independent and in control of their music nowadays, it comes with a fact that their audience are becoming more engaged with their favorites. And social media is a huge part of it.
We gathered 5 independent bands that people have been talking about last year and you seriously need to watch out for 2017. These are the bands that break through last year and they proved that they are not stopping what they've started any time sooner.
This alt-pop duo from Nashville debut their first ever single XO early last year with smashing over a million plays on Spotify in just six weeks after its released. They also went with K. Flay for her tour around US and Canada by the end of the year. They've also released another single last October called HONEST and they are planning on releasing more music this year and doing more shows around the country.
No words with how huge this band has become since they've released their music last 2014. Since then everyone is talking about them and made a huge amount of listeners when they released their hit single ILYSB before 2015 ends. Making them one of the most sought after bands of 2016. They've been touring with Ellie Goulding, Troye Sivan and Oh Wonder last year and they announced their first headline tour before 2016 ends in Europe and in the US. They are now planning on releasing their album this coming 2017 and everyone can't wait what new stuff this band have in store for their dedicated fans.
The Japanese House
Being part of the label of Dirty Hit records and having an EP co-produced by The 1975, we expect nothing less by The Japanese House aka 20 year old Amber Bain from London. She's been touring all year round and been with The 1975 concerts together with Wolf Alice last year. With her upcoming US tour this 2017, we are pretty sure it's gonna be a great year for her listeners.
Been a guest of several big music festivals last year and been able to tour with numerous great artists such as Temper Trap, The Wombats and BORNS - Coast Modern may be a huge name for this upcoming year. With their unique catchy sound perfect for summer, you sure don't wanna miss them in action.
The Lemon Twigs
This pop-rock duo (they are also brothers) from Long Island, New York released their album called DO HOLLYWOOD last October 2016. They have a very 70's unique sound and you will surely love their aesthetic as a band. They're currently touring around US and Canada and will perform at Coachella this coming April.
That's just some of the bands you don't wanna miss this year. If you are on the mood on discovering new music and getting into the vibe of indie genre, make sure to give them a go and we are very sure that you will not regret it.
