Given that it’s the shortest month of the year, February has dragged on forever. We’ve snapped out of that “oh shit it’s 2020” mindset of January and it feels as if there’s already been enough tragedy and drama to fill a whole year. The music landscape is more unpredictable than ever, and there’s no longer any kind of routine or hub for artist discovery. Instead of taking out an hour to dig through SoundCloud or catch up on blogs, music discovery happens everywhere, usually when you’re least expecting it.
We hope this Best New Artists feature can bring at least a little bit of consistency into the picture, and that you’ll know at the end of each month you can come here to find at least one new thing you like. This month we’ve got one of the most eclectic lineups of Best New Artists in recent memory, a something-for-everyone round-up of singers and rappers with different sounds, approaches, and trajectories. Enjoy.
Look back at all of our Best New Artists here and keep up with them all on the Best New Artists playlists on Spotify and Apple.
