You’ve probably heard this indie-pop duo without knowing it. They’ve been featured on shows like Grey’s Anatomy and been getting tons of buzz on the Internet. Their debut album has earned them comparisons to Lana Del Rey and Florence and the Machine. This is one group to keep your eye on ever the next year.
7. The Neighbourhood (Fri. 8/2 at 12 pm)
This mysterious California band popped up on the Internet one day without much fanfare. There’s very little information about the band leaving the music to do all the talking. But that’s okay, because songs like “Sweater Weather” carry the conversation.

This band is the perfect kind of group to discover at a festival bursting with emerging bands. Their infectious, dream pop sound is surprisingly refreshing and just what you want to hear on the first day of Lollapalooza. Be sure to check out their four song EP, which will leave you wanting more.

This time next year, the rest of America will have caught on to St. Lucia, whose chill, ’80s sound will likely be the soundtrack of the summer. This group channels everything you love about summer but mixes the perfect amount of chill vibe that carries them through the winter.
