Wyland, a quartet from the town of Kearny in New Jersey's Meadowlands region (hold the "swamps of Jersey" jokes, please). We caught up with them via Noisetrade.com, which has a preview of their upcoming EP Snake Hill. We're featuring the rousing "Lights Go Dark" in our New Music bin. (Photo by Brian L. Tice Jr.)
The Wild Reeds, featuring the vocal talents of Sharon Silva, Kinsey Lee and Mackenzie Howe, in powerful solos and delicate harmonies alike. When they appeared on NPR's Tiny Desk Concert series in 2015, producer Bob Boilen wrote, "Great singers aren't easy to come by, so finding three in one band is something special." We've added "Only Songs" to our New Music rotation. It's the first single from the album The World We Built, due in April.
OK now on to the bigger-name acts...
The Chainsmokers aren't so much a band as a pair of American DJs, but they've teamed up with Coldplay (or at least with Chris Martin under that name) on a song called "Something Just Like This." It's four minutes of pure pop fun, nothing more and nothing less.
The Strumbella's 2016 album, Hope.
