1. Vaults

Very little is known about this group from London. Their website only links to social media accounts and pre-order links to their upcoming album. They might be secretive, but it matters very little- the mid-tempo electro-pop melodies speak for themselves. 
2.Sajid and The Lost Boys

This one is from the old CD collection. Delhi-based Sajid Akbar needs very little introduction (“The Killer Tomatoes”- that’s it). Wielding an acoustic guitar, Sajid Akbar and The Lost Boys (who can be found in Advaita) in 2008 went on to create Kid Without Candy- one of the most important Indian independent albums ever released (according to this author, anyway)

LA-based rock duo Best Coast are known for their lo-fi guitar based pop inspired by surf-rock bands from the 60s. Over the course of three albums (the last of which, California Nights, was released earlier this year) their sound become cleaner, slowly shedding its lo-fi skin.

5.Angus and Julia Stone

Indie-folk’s famous brother-sister duo amicably went solo by the end of 2010 and Rick Rubin prides himself in bringing the two back together for their self-titled third album last year. The album is definitely darker (and a somehow more experimental) than their first two albums and brings out an interesting dimension to their songwriting (Rick Ruben also stated that this is the first time the duo have written songs together rather than bringing already-written songs to each other)
