Music is a way to express yourself and create memories. It’s a huge part of most of our daily lives. There’s so much music coming out all the time that many songs and artists tend to get lost. We’re here to remind you of some of the artists that are up and coming and deserve the hype.
1. Olivia Rodrigo
You might have seen Olivia Rodrigo before but not for her music, probably on High School Musical: The Musical: The Series. She recently gained some popularity for a song she wrote for the series called “All I Want”. It became a widely used sound on TikTok and she gained some notoriety for it. Her music career took a sudden blast off when she released the song “Drivers License”. It is a heartfelt masterpiece that captures the feeling of heartbreak. It’s seriously so beautiful that we cried to it, along with half of the world. This earned her the number one spot on the charts globally and we understand why. If you’re looking for new music to add to your playlist of songs you can scream in the car with your friends you’re definitely going to want to keep Olivia Rodrigo on your radar.
2. Maude Latour
If you’re a Lorde fan, Maude Latour is a bedroom pop version of her sound. She captures the dreamy feeling of being a teenager again. Feeling young, wild, and free. There are few artists out there that capture this feeling so effortlessly but Maude does it perfectly. There is no other way to describe her sound other than the feeling of being invincible and young. She writes the type of music that makes you feel alive.
Claud is currently the only artist signed to Phoebe Bridgers label, which obviously means they’re amazing. They give off an indie-pop sound that isn’t like others, it’s unique but still includes classic elements to the genre.

This is the type of music you throw on in your room when you’re just relaxing and want some good vibes.
4. Remi Wolf
Remi Wolf is just cool. That’s the best way to describe her unique sound. She really has a sound that’s unlike any other. She gained a lot of popularity recently for her song “Photo ID” which became a famous TikTok trend. Many people would deceive it as a modern funk or psychedelic sound because she incorporates elements from the genre. She also has an amazing style and her music videos are just fun.

TSHA is a refreshing take on electronic music. She mixes her unique vocals over soft electronic beats to create a new sound. She’s an artist we haven’t gotten this excited about in a long time. She brings a brand new sound to the table which is rare. It’s safe to say that she doesn’t share a similar sound with any other artist which is why she’s so amazing. Her music makes us wanna dance around and live our best lives. It’s happy music.
8. Dominic Fike
Dominic Fike might be fairly well known but is still underrated in our opinion. He has a unique voice and a sound that is all over the place. What we mean by that is that he’s versatile and has shown that time and time again throughout his projects. He has some songs that give a beachy vibe, some that give a grunge vibe, some that sound indie pop, and some that could be on the verge of rap. Either way, they’re all amazing.
9. Abigail Barlow
We have a feeling Abigail Barlow will be the next big pop star. She got a lot of recognition for her hit single “Heartbreak Hotel” that hit iTunes top ten on the charts and then followed up with another hit “Afterparty”. Her sound is fresh but still stays true to the pop genre. Her lyrics tell a story and are totally relatable. She’s also just relatable in general, and you can follow along on her music journey on TikTok where she shows how she writes and creates her songs. It feels like you’re her bestie and you’re along for the ride. If you need some girl power or a new pop artist to stan check out Abigail Barlow.
10. Role Model
Role Model is an indie-pop artist that’s on the rise for his unique sound and approach to music. He writes relatable music for people who don’t try hard to impress and live their life however they please. The lyrics are relatable because he writes a series of songs about being young and going through relationship problems and problems in general. He makes feel-good music that has a deeper meaning.
