Mitski was born in Japan, but spent her upbringing in a different place each year. Influenced by M.I.A, Bjork, Bruce Springsteen, Iggy Pop and Rachmaninov, her music represents a grungy, colorful palette of folk-rock.Performing under her first name, the increasingly acclaimed 25-year-old on the rise entered the music world while studying at the SUNY Purchase Conservatory of Music, then self-releasing her first two studio albums.
‘Her single ‘Happy’ is a haunting and anything but ‘happy’ song, yet intriguing with a truly captivating voice.‘ Claire
Fast-rising Los Angeles quartet Transviolet debuted on the scene earlier this summer with a brooding, electro-minimalistic single called “Girls Your Age,” which gained lots of buzz and was described by The Line of Best Fit as “a subtly brilliant pop epic.” The song also caught the attention of Katy Perry, who tweeting about it as her Song of the Day, Twin Shadow, who remixed the track, and even One Direction, which sang the chorus during a recent medley. Transviolet meet these high anticipations with a splendid collection of radio friendly pop anthems on their new, self-titled EP. Already earning comparisons to artists like Halsey, Lorde and Broods, Transviolet has surely got something big going on. Theyâre touring the U.S. this fall with Mikky Ekko.
‘Their debut single ‘Girls Your Age’ is my favourite track – it’s chilled and mesmerising.’ Emma
Lianne La Havas
Offering a mostly acoustic and hushed hybrid of alternative folk and soul, Lianne La Havas was born and raised in London, England, the daughter of a Jamaican mother and Greek father. The singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist was a member of the Paris Parade with Christian Pinchbeck (a future member of Elephant), but the act proved to be short-lived. La Havas eventually shifted to solo work and released Lost & Found, a four-track EP featuring a duet with Willy Mason, in October 2011. Two months later — the same month she opened for Bon Iver during a North American tour — it was announced that she had been nominated for the BBC’s Sound of 2012 poll. Is Your Love Big Enough?, La Havas’ debut album for Warner Bros., was released in the U.K. in July 2012; the U.S. release through Nonesuch followed a month later.
‘I’ve been listening to her album ‘Blood’ non-stop – it’s great music to work to. I also love her cover of Nina Simone’s ‘Baltimore’.‘ Rebecca
