If you're like me, you're always on the look out for new music and bands you should be listening to now.

This is a great list of a few hot new bands you should definitely check out if you haven't already.

1. The 1975

A band I’m sure you’ve heard of but, if not, a major band you should be listening to is The 1975.

This group of four young gentlemen from Manchester has an album full of the most adorable songs.

Their first single is called ‘Chocolate’.

Seriously!

It doesn’t take much more than naming a song after my favorite thing to get me to pay attention!

The point, though, is that they held my attention and the attention of many fans all over the world.

I recently saw these guys live and, I’ve got to say, they put on a fun show!

Though their music is alternative in nature, there are clear funky, soulful influences.

Their debut album, The 1975 is beautifully catchy and playful.

There is just enough late 80s - mid-90s style pop to keep things catchy.

2. Local Natives

Don't let the name fool you - are they local or native?

Is that redundant?

Where are they right now?

- These kids are great.

Native to Los Angeles (see what I did there?), their songs are percussive and sweeping with a lot of prominent piano, which I'm a sucker for.

Their harmonies are out of control.

Their latest album is Hummingbird with songs like 'Heavy Feet' and 'You and I,' which are beautiful.

But don't forget to check out their previous album, Gorilla Manor, featuring awesome cuts like 'Airplanes'.

This band has been around for a little while, so you have a selection of quality tunes to check out.2
