Apparently the viral band on Spotify right now, Lorde has an excellent EP that showcases her strong vocals as well as a unique set of songs. While having a somewhat mainstream voice, her electro influences in her songs help to make them edgy and different.
This band is destined for major indie stardom. They are just the perfect mix of indie and mainstream sound, which will help them reach a broad audience. Imagine Dragons was the big hit from last year. If Hunter Hunted’s album is anything like their EP, Hunter Hunted could be that band for 2013.
While Grimes broke out with their album Visions last year, she has also produced other albums. One notable song from her 2011 album Darkbloom is “Vanessa.” It’s more mellow, but has that distinctive high pitch sound and rhythmic beat that has made her famous.
