The Fray (USA)

The Fray are an American rock band from Denver Colorado that formed in 2002.  The band has released three albums and their latest album Helios is due for release February 25th 2014. The Fray usually use the piano as their lead instrument making their music more on the softer side, but their new single “Love Don’t Die” is a pleasant change and they ROCK in this song!

Empire of the Sun (Australia)

Empire of the Sun are know as an electronic music duo from Australia, but I would call them alternative with electronic elements. Empire of the Sun formed in 2007. Their debut album Walking on a Dream was released in 2008 and the band shot to international success. My favorite song off this album would have to be “We are the People”. The bands second album Ice on the Dune was released in 2013.  They have had a lot of success with their lead sing “Alive”, a great song which just makes you happy, if you haven’t heard it yet please take the time you won’t be sorry!

Bastille (England)

Bastille are an English rock band that formed in London in 2010. Singer Dan Smith started a solo project then decided to form a band. The bands debut album Bad Blood was released in March 2013in the UK and Sept 2013 in the US. The album charted well on the UK charts. By the time the album came out they had already released four singles. “Pompeii” was one of these single and was hugely popular. This single has now made it to the US and is receiving a deal of success. The band released a new collection album All that Bad Blood Nov. 2013. Rock on Bastille!

 

Sparkadia (Australia)

Sparkadia originally formed in 2004 in Sydney Australia. Lead singer Alexander Burnett made Sparkadia into a solo project in 2009. As a band Sparkadia released the album Postcards in 2008. As a solo project Alexander Burnett as released The Great Impression in 2011. I feel that the single “China” from 2011 is by far the best song Sparkadia has released.

One Republic (USA)

Loving the single “Counting Stars” from this band. One Republic are from Colorado and started out in 2003. They released their debut album Dreaming Out Loud in 2007 , in 2009 they released Waking up and their latest album Native was released in 2013. The bands 2007 single “Apologize ” was amazing and got the band the international recognition they deserved. Their latest single “Counting Stars” in just as good though.
