Keeping up-to-date with the latest music drops leaves little time to discover new artists. Don’t worry – we sifted through countless hours of fresh music and picked out some mint faces. 10 Under 100 highlights artists who have released killer music and have under 100,000 monthly listeners on Spotify. We think you should know about them.
- deM atlaS – 86,194
deM atlaS combines funk inspired beats and infuses his own spice to create a unique space within the rap game. You can catch him perform at the east coast Warped Tour, Soundset, or as the opening act for Atmosphere on tour now. Check out his song Bad Loves Company to get a taste of his style.
- Hvrbie – 3,814
There’s not much to tell about Hvrbie. He only has one song out, She Felt Like (You), but we hear new music is coming soon.
- Hashir – 26,705
The song Down by beat maker Hashir is the perfect song for a late drive. He has a ton of other music on Soundcloud as well. We don’t know much about him either, but we’ll definitely have our eyes on him.
- Violet Skies – 76,885
As the co-founder of SheWrites, an all-female writing camp, Violet Skies fights for more women in a male dominated space. Her song Is She Gonna Be There? candidly touches on a relationship that doesn’t seem very over between her partner and their ex. Hopefully we hear more music from her very soon.
- Stellie – 78,601
Stellie is a South Australian artist we’re excited to keep tabs on. Her song, Let’s Forget We Were In Love, details an unsatisfying love that would be better off forgotten about. Dance away.
- TELESCA. – 28,295
- Andrew Goldring – 9,503
Andrew finds the perfect balance between singer/songwriter, folk and indie rock. Coal Harbour (Brand New Life) is that exact blend. He released his first full length album last month
- Rob Reese – 17,454
Rob Reese makes music that will make you smile. No Life is an 8-bit sounding beat with a catchy hook. Also, he opened up for Aaron Carter once, which means you need to check him out.
- Cathedral Bells – 15,790
Cathedral Bells is a comprised of Matthew Messore and David Carey. This dream pop/shoegaze duo will transport you to a completely different decade with their track Ethereal Shadow. Get lost in their magic.
- CLAY – 75,068
We see a softer side of CLAY in her latest release, sponge. She details the pain of bottled up emotions and taking in the energy of others. Getting a deep insight to her struggles only draws you closer to her as an artist.
That wraps up our 10 fresh faces for the month of February. Let us know which new artists you loved!
