The guys from Saints of Valory are truly a melting pot of personalities and artists, having individually spent a lot of their youth in countries ranging from Brazil, Greece, Canada and others before settling in Austin, TX. The wide range of influences can be heard in their music as the band has grown an exceptional following that has lead them to an invitation to perform at Coachella 2014. Their track, “Neon Eyes”, is currently featured prominently in a car commercial and the band is scheduled for numerous shows at this year’s SXSW. Get to know Saints of Valory now!

X Ambassadors are based in Brooklyn, NY but the band was discovered by Dan Reynolds of Imagine Dragons who heard one of X Ambassadors’ songs on the radio. That chance moment has helped X Ambassadors gain a spot touring with Imagine Dragons and on the cusp of releasing a new album with the backing of Interscope Records’ imprint, KIDinaKORNER Records. The band talked about their origins and more.

Spotlight videos this week included “Electricity” by FMLYBND and “Look Away” by Lo Fang.
