If there’s one thing that gets most of us through the day, it’s discovering new artists. Whether we’re scrolling through SoundCloud looking for mood tunes to help alleviate a case of the Mondays, or listening to a mixtape someone has sent our way, not a day goes by without some kind of music playing in our offices.

Since our inboxes tend to get inundated with projects from artists interested in coverage, we’re spotlighting some of the quietly wondrous musicians that find their way to us each week. These artists may not have conquered the Billboard 100 (yet) but they’ve all got something unique to offer, and they’re all worth getting to know.

Scroll through to see our 10 under the radar artists to discover this week, and stay tuned for a fresh selection next week.

Ian Ewing

Where: Milwaukee What They’ve Been Working On: His beauteous, beatific new EP Don't Ride on the Sidewalk. Sounds Like: The hazy, humid days of summer where you can literally see the air shimmer above the road.


Where: London What They’ve Been Working On: Culling together tracks for her self-produced, self-written debut EP, Battle Royale. Sounds Like: Isadora calls her work "pathological pop," but we would also feel comfortable calling it "candy-coated sinister synth-wave."


Where: Copenhagen What They’ve Been Working On: "Keep Cool," one hell of an assured debut single. Sounds Like: Being in a bath with incense, aroma candles et al. with your lover, slowly slathering yourself in soap suds.

Kent Jones

Where: Miami What They’ve Been Working On: Somehow linking up with DJ Khaled in Miami for the production of this party of a video, "Merengue." Sounds Like: A song that, as the chorus promises, you could get down and funky and dance to with your mama.

Kevin George

Where: Los Angeles What They’ve Been Working On: Prepping the release of his debut project, LOVELAND. Sounds Like: Haunted, soulful R&B a la The Weeknd, only trading in pop-beats for lush, classical orchestration.

Mariel Ito

Where: Barcelona What They’ve Been Working On: The just-released EP 2e Komst, a dark trip through an enticing world of club-ready stompers. Sounds Like: If the Death Star held raves for the Stormtroopers on their weekends off.


Where: Amsterdam What They’ve Been Working On: "Grace," her first-ever single and video. Sounds Like: Smoking a spliff at an open-air samba club by the sea, where the beat is constantly underscored by the waves breaking on the shore.

Tom Misch

Where: London What They’ve Been Working On: His debut album Geography, due out on April 6, which will feature such guests as De La Soul and GoldLink. Sounds Like: The feeling of having a huge, dramatic romantic gesture pay off big time.

TreeHouse 707

Where: London What They’ve Been Working On: The art-collective / record label fusion have just released Quiet, a compilation inspired by the conflicting feelings of winter. Sounds Like: If early Kanye West and J Dilla instrumentals went off in an entirely new, experimental direction - particularly in the percussion department.


Where: Los Angeles What They’ve Been Working On: Continuing to release a steady stream of phenomenal electro singles, "Habits" is their latest gem. Sounds Like: Bouncing around inside an enormous helium-balloon animal at a zany speed.
