These are the Ones To Watch and the ones to listen to.
According to Live Nation, these two acts are worth keeping your eyes and ears open to, and that was proven to us when the two groups of breathtaking artists stole the attention of the crowd at Live Nation’s annual Ones To Watch event at its Beverly Hills headquarters in LA. With lots of smiles, drinks, and customized t-shirts and tanks with the artists’ names, we were all welcomed to the talents of these musicians.
Our first artist to perform was Aquilo, who is an electronic, downtempo indie band from across the pond that will swoon your soul with their beautiful productions that could serenade you to sleep. With dreamy lullabies intertwined into riveting, adventurous soundscapes, they have recaptured the emotions of nostalgic wastelands of the mind and memory in the form of stunning tunes.
Aquilo has also built recognition for themselves, noticed by big names. For example, it has been remixed by Marian Hill and has collaborated with artists such as Madeon and Betty Who! Aquilo also reached over 11 million streams on their single “Silhouette” alone!
Our second starlet is Brika, who is an Art House Records signee from Miami. She is our next R&B-pop songstress to reign over the music industry. She also had the chance to perform live at the Ones to Watch event and was absolutely stunning in her kimono and her silky, strong vocals that carried throughout the room and embraced everyone in rhythmic and “blues-y” hugs. Her voice kissed the sound waves and vibrated through the sound system with smoothness like no other.
Her last release was back in April titled “Don’t Want Your Love”. Her music will remind you of the forces of Vérité, Tei Shi, and Sza. Crowds are excited to watch her music take off as she releases more tracks and allows people to truly hear her voice.
Both sets were riveting and extremely well-performed, and worth noting as they work their ways into their musical career futures. Be on the lookout, they’re the ones to watch after all!
