This is a new feature we’re bringing to our website. Every Wednesday we’ll be introducing you to 5 new artists you may not have heard of yet. The only rule, they cannot ever have had a song crack out top 20 chart. Got it? Good. Here we go:
ARTIST: Magic Man
WHO ARE THEY?: Alex, Sam, Justine, and Joey, a group of friends from Boston. Alex and Sam met in high school, while the others joined the band after college. They’ve previously toured with Walk The Moon and are currently on the road with New Politics.
WHAT’S THEIR DEAL?: Their energetic, up-beat music is the kind of stuff that instantaneously gets stuck in your head. The songs feature powerful vocals, gorgeous synth lines, and enough bass to keep their fans constantly dancing. If you like The Killers, Foster The People, or Bastille, this should be right in your wheel house.
ARTIST: The Glitch Mob
WHO ARE THEY?: Ed, Justin, and Josh, a three-piece electronic group from Los Angeles. If you’ve looked at this year’s Coachella lineup, you’ve probably seen their name. You don’t even have to squint. They’ve earned themselves some big-sized font.
WHAT’S THEIR DEAL?: Their forte is dark, blood-pumping, shake you to your core, electronic music. After becoming one of the biggest names in LA’s underground scene, the group is exploding into the mainstream on the strength of their new album Love Death Immortality. Several of the new songs feature guest vocalists, including Aja Volkman from Nico Vega.
ARTIST: Royal Blood
WHO ARE THEY?: A hard-rocking duo from the England made up of Michael Kerr and Ben Thatcher. These guys have been making waves overseas and are touring the UK with Arctic Monkeys this spring. They’re set to invade America on the heels of their single “Out Of The Black.”
WHAT’S THEIR DEAL?: Rock music is often at its most powerful when it is completely raw and unfiltered. Royal Blood prove this by combining blistering guitar, heavy rhythms, and haunting lyrics. The result falls somewhere between Rage Against The Machine and The White Stripes. Let’s be honest, that’s pretty good company to keep.
ARTIST: Max Frost
WHO IS HE?: A slick singer/songwriter from Austin, Texas. You’ve probably heard his song “White Lies” in the Beats by Dre commercial.
WHAT’S HIS DEAL?: Though he may be a new artist, Max is hardly a rookie. He started playing music at age 8, performed his first gig at 12, and has come up through the always fertile Austin music scene. His sound combines soul, rock, and electronic music. It’s as if Gnarls Barkley, The Neighbourhood, and Phantogram had a love child together (yes, we mean that in a good way).
ARTIST: Bear Hands
WHO ARE THEY?: A four-piece indie rock band from Brooklyn, made up of Dyaln, Val, Ted, and TJ. Their new album Distraction comes out later this year.
WHAT’S THEIR DEAL?: The bandmates met in college while many of them were still focusing on playing punk music. As the group began making music together, the sound evolved. Somehow they maintained their edge, while embracing a wider sonic style. Fans of Twenty One Pilots and Young The Giant should take note.

What can you say about Kings Of Leon that hasn’t already been said? They are an amazing band, incredible live, and have a well earned reputation for putting on sensational performances. Their headlining set at Life Is Beautiful was no exception. The crowd’s anticipation was palpable when the band emerged on stage. They quickly erupted into a set filled with hits like “Sex On Fire” and “Use Somebody”, as well as new favorites like “Supersoaker”. All the while, the audience sang along and danced, feeling the excitement and emotion in each and every song.

Portugal. The Man have been making great music since 2006, but only now do they seem primed for a huge breakthrough. Their latest album, Evil Friends, was produced by Danger Mouse and features awesome tracks like “Purple, Yellow, Red, and Blue” and “Modern Jesus”.
At Life Is Beautiful, the band emerged from a cloud of fog to put on one of the best sets of the festival. Equal parts haunting and powerful, Portugal. The Man displayed the ability to hold the crowd in the palm of their hand during their extremely memorable performance.
Here are just some of the images from Portugal. The Man at Life Is Beautiful:
A hard-hitting quartet out of Los Angeles, Nico Vega brings power and intensity to every song they play. One listen to their single “Beast” and you’ll understand what I’m talking about. Raw, pure emotion overflows in their music and is even more evident when seeing them live. At Life Is Beautiful, lead singer Aja Volkman captured the audience’s attention from the moment she stepped on stage. Dynamic and eye-catching, Volkman thrashed her hair, jumped on a bass drum, then later climbed into the crowd. The band’s exhilarating brand of rock was definitely one of the highlights from the weekend.

Hailing from Oakland, CA, Wallpaper. are a hybrid alternative hip-hop group. The band is the brain child of Ricky Reed, their front man and founder. On stage Reed flashes bravado, but never manages to take himself too seriously. This music is fun, after all, and watching the group perform at Life Is Beautiful it really felt as though the band enjoyed the set as much as the audience. Reed and fellow singer Novena Carmel displayed a natural chemistry, smiling, dancing, and moving all over the stage. Their energy was palpable and resonated with the fans, many of whom were seen dancing up a storm during the songs.
Take a look at some of the pictures from Wallpaper.’s set at Life Is Beautiful:
Out Of Order fans may be more familiar with Donald Glover for his role on the television show Community than for his successful rap career, but make no mistake – this is a performer who knows how to own a stage. Glover performs under the pseudonym Childish Gambino and displays a flair and persona that rivals any other rapper today. At Life Is Beautiful his bravado was in full effect, eliciting monstrous reaction from the crowd, with fans cheering, yelling, and singing along.
