Matt Costa-Good Times

Matt Costa comes from California. He taught himself music, in general! In order to get some inspiration he listened to Mozart and started to write some pop/rock melodies. In his songs, someone can easily get confused by the happy tempo and the dark lyrics. "Good Times" for example begin very optimistic but they end up by "coming to an end". He has already released 4 indepedent albums and his music has been featured in movies,advertisements and documentaries. You can watch the "Good Times" and read the lyrics here.

The Paper Kites-Bloom

We could talk about Melbourne, cause I truly believe that in that place great music legends are born, but right now I choose to talk especially about The Paper Kites. They became famous and got loved by the internet. They built their audience and their fans used the word-of-mouth strategy in order to help their music to expand. The five members used to be good friends before they formed their band and this is something you can feel it while you listen to them. They could be easily compared to Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros. "Bloom" is a sweet melody and it fits with a cup of coffee. You can watch the music video and read the lyrics of "Bloom" here.

HAIM-Falling

Three sisters from LA, Daniele, Alana and Este became one by creating their own band. The HAIMs introduced to us as a refreshing
old school soft-pop band. Even if they are too young  and their band too new, they have already supported Mumford & Sons and Florence + The Machine to their tours. Interviews to the biggest radio stations,magazines and tvshows have been happening since then. "Falling" is their new song, which I am pretty sure is going to blow your minds.Get ready for a massive breath of fresh air. You can watch the music video of "Falling" and read the lyrics here.

Lucy Rose-Scar

This girl was born in 1989 in England. Lucy Rose may be too young but her impact is huge in the indie music. We met her doing the vocals for Bombay Bicycle Club but now she introduces herself by releasing her first solo album under the title "Like I Used To". Lucy begun her journey in music when she was a kid,playing the drums for school shows. Later she bought her own guitar and started to play it all alone. Now, she writes some of the best indie-folk songs. "Scar" is a song from the debut album and the music video was directed by Orestes Mitas -I think he is from Cyprus-  ,who did an excellent job. You can watch "Scar" and read the lyrics here.
