Big Hair Girls- "Future Is Female"

Big Hair Girls- "Future Is Female"

Big Hair Girls are a fearless chant-pop duo out of Jersey City made up of sisters Venus and Lizzy Lightyear. As Russian / Romanian / Surinamese / Caribbean kids growing up in the suburbs of New York City, the girls were clearly different and stuck out at a time when it meant everything to fit in. Being bullied throughout their school years, Lizzy and Venus realized their differences are what made them awesome and learned to stand up for themselves. From then on, they vowed to value their uniqueness and stop straightening their hair! Today, they hold onto that vow with their amazing, technicolor, and BIG hair!

Ingrid Michaelson- "Hell No"

Ingrid Michaelson- "Hell No"

However, the song is pretty amazing, and it definitely falls under the girl power category. Ingrid is basically telling an ex- lover he was nothing to her and that there is a zero percent chance of her ever going down that path with him again. The fast-tempo mixed with the empowering lyrics are a dangerous cocktail of self-confidence for anyone going through a breakup, and we thank Michaelson for that.

Kill J- "Bullet"

Kill J- "Bullet"

Kill J is the crossover Scandinavian beauty that is making a name for herself in the pop world. She is eccentric, talented and completely unique. We first heard "Bullet" in Houston blaring over the loud speakers at a music festival, and even though the song is a little bit older, it still bumps hard as ever. This may be one of the catchiest tunes we have heard to date, and Kill J did a wonderful job at creating a chorus that sticks with the listener for ages. Not to mention that her voice is as stunning as they come, and we could listen to her for hours and hours.

Rhiannon Simpson and the Triple Delta- "Which Side Are You On?"

Rhiannon Simpson and the Triple Delta- "Which Side Are You On?"

"Which Side Are You On?" is a jazz-blues banger that incorporates soulful undertones and incredible instrumentation. Below is the live video, but you can download the recorded track on Simpson's Band Camp page. We just thought you needed to see Rhiannon shredding the guitar and showing everyone why women must never be underestimated when it comes to bad-assery.

Katankin is the new solo project by Melbourne-based independent singer/songwriter/instrumentalist Helen Catanchin. Formally trained as a jazz singer, Katankin makes a departure from her previous contemporary jazz releases to explore electronic and indie pop production techniques and arrangements- while maintaining the same emphasis on poetic, heartfelt lyrics and her unique and powerfully expressive vocals.

Betty Who- "Human Touch"

Betty Who- "Human Touch"

"Human Touch" is an upbeat pop tune that displays a lot of heavy bass and harmonies. Her vocals are exceptionally high in this track, and the overall vibe can be described as dreamy, melodic and ambient. The video is quite sensual and incorporates stunning and intricate interpretive dancing between Betty and three separate partners, who eventually perform a collaborative number at the very end. The dancing, quality and track are all a+ pieces of work, and we definitely enjoyed this one!

Dagny- "Wearing Nothing"

Dagny- "Wearing Nothing"

The song has a lot of chanty harmonies and heavy drops, similar to those you would find in a Crystal Castles song, that make it almost impossible not to get up and dance. Dagny and the male actor are perfectly in sync with a beautiful interpretive dance routine, and Dagny prances gracefully around a house filled with pink curtains and bright yellow couches- making you think the video could potentially be set in the 80's. Whatever the year, Dagny and her team did a beautiful job at creating a visually pleasing and interesting video. We think you'll like this one.

Cam- "Burning House"

Cam- "Burning House"

"Burning House" is about a relationship that has been dragging Cam under, forcing her to leave him to drown on his own. Though she is gone, she still has dreams of going down with him- but they are just dreams. She does an amazing job describing a parasitic relationship and the urge to try and fix it, even when you know it is impossible. The video is a little strange and Cam received a lot of criticism for smiling throughout, but our response to that is "You do you, girl!"
