The 15 Most Exciting Artists For 2022
Incorporating talent from across the globe, check out our five Tracks of the Week taken from our meticulously-curated BRAND NEW playlist showcasing some of the most exciting up-and-coming talents around.
1. Zoee – ‘The Empty Glass’
Painting rich sonic worlds with her confessional phone notes and a Korg Volca, London-based art-pop artist Harriet Zoe Pittard, aka Zoee, is a breathe of fresh air. ‘The Empty Glass’ is a track from her debut album ‘Flaw Flower’ – a record that sees the rising talent at her most honest and vulnerable – and allows for a personal glimpse into her interior world.
2. Ehiorobo – ‘Jay Ventura’
Blurring the lines between rap, experimental R&B and noise punk, Ehiorobo’s output is as multi-dimensional as his unique personality and upbringing. On his latest single ‘Jay Ventura’, the New Jersey-raised artist captures the essence of adventure and uses his soulful melodies to ponder the bigger questions surrounding romance, memories and loss.
3. Leyya – ‘Lately’
Made up of Sophie Lindinger and Marco Kleebauer, Leyya has been developing their dreamy brand of alternative pop for the last seven years. Preparing to release their forthcoming EP ‘Longest Day Of My Life’ later this year, the Austrian duo’s latest offering comes in the form of ‘Lately’: a summer-ready slice of soothing melodies and euphoric production.
4. chuala – ‘wake up!’
‘wake up!’ was written with chuala’s first-hand experience of working full-time and the exacerbation of having no rest. Having already worked with the likes of Rudimental and Big Narstie, the genre-bending artist shows her versatility once more by delivering an energised turn-up track which will feature on her forthcoming EP ‘me and chu’, out July 30.
5. Knife Girl – ‘Metro’
The title-track from Knife Girl’s recently released debut EP, ‘Metro’ showcases what 20-year-old Lili Aslo’s electropop sound is all about. Weaving candied production with hazy, late-night melodies, the track harks back to an 80s vibe and transports you to a dance floor of old.
