Artist: Foster The People
Following the American indie band's smash single "Pumped Up Kicks" is "Houdini," an infectious mix of dance-able electro beats, stylistic lyrics, and vocalist Mark Foster's trademark falsetto. FTP's signature sound is fast becoming a hit that you can't afford to not have it on your playlist.
Fun Fact: According to USA Today, the band's original name was supposed to be "Foster & the People" but after being misheard by many as "Foster the People," the band decided to go with the latter.
Song: "Simple Girl"
Here comes another star in the making—Zia Quizon just launched her first album this month featuring the bluesy track "Simple Girl" that shows off that rich, KT Tunstall-esque tone of hers. The song sounds fresh and that's what we love most about it—definitely not the cookie-cutter kind of hit we hear all too often.
Fun Fact: This bluesy crooner might be a music newbie but we've got a feeling she's not entirely unfamiliar with the limelight. Zia is the daughter of Zsazsa Padilla and Dolphy, and is Karylle's baby sister.
