ACROSS THE SEA:
SXSW has always brought the world to the US. This year is no different. Here is a small sampling of world artists represented at SXSW:
Sisters Lisa-Kainde & Naomi Diaz are electrifying Their self-titled album became available in February
Last year “Bamboo” was one of many songs Ana Garcia Perrote & Carlotta Cosials brought alive under the name Deers. They changed their name to Hinds and are now a four piece. They are doing a short US tour to coincide with SXSW.
This pop band has been addictive since note one. Froot came out in 2015 and we expect more touring as the summer begins.
This Swedish rapper appeared with artists like MO and Charli XCX. Her latest EP is One More that came out in 2014.
Emmy has been underground in the US but has a string of songs that should delight at SXSW. She also will have a new EP called S.

Richard Llewellyn & Sarah Howells are the new Civil Wars. We were hooked at only hearing a song. Their Circus EP came out in 2014 and the full length Joy is due out later this year.
When we heard “Bang the Drum” this Danish artist was instantly on our list. Mind the Gap has only been released digitally in the US but is a work of art.
“Ego” is the song you’ve heard. The full album may be out before SXSW. This Swedish singer-songwriter has depth beyond the pop area.
If you haven’t heard of her, look her up. She immediately had our attention and we want a full tour from the Swedish artist
They were one of our Best Of in 2014 and they made many lists. This London 4 piece should be taking over the US post SXSW. Creature Songs was released in 2014.
