1. Run River North
Run River North is a band of first-generation Korean-Americans getting ready to drop a new album, which is pretty big considering their debut last year, a rock album with folksy and punk sounds infused, came out at #3 on Billboard’s heatseekers chart. They’re ready for big things.
Elohim is an on-the-rise electro-pop songstress who somehow manages to balance relatable lyrics with an air of absolute mystery. She’s the chic girl at the party–so cool that she could have anyone in the room. She’s untouchable, but you can’t stop listening to every word. Favorite track: “Xanax.”
