Band That Will Be The Next Gossip or Florence–We’re Just Not Sure Which Yet: MS MR. The question isn’t if this band will become mega-famous, but when. We bet that you’ll be singing “Hurricane” at karaoke bars by the end of next year.
Band That Is So LA–And We Love It: Deap Vally. These ladies rocked out wearing bikini tops and short-shorts. You can take the girl out of LA….
Band That Is Stealing R. Kelly’s Schtick: Autre Ne Veut. That is some serious R&B crooning. Which, if you like R. Kelly (like, ahem, our web editor Ali Hoffman), is probably a really good thing.
Band With a Wardrobe We Want To Steal: IO Echo. Frontwoman Ionna Gika owned the stage in her kimono-smiley face sweater-cut-off ensemble. Onstage or off, we’d wear it every single day.
