Nothing excites us more than new artists entering the scene. Though the list is basically endless, these are the artists that excited us the most in 2017. They embody the rich nostalgic sound that we all know and love, each furthering the genre in the best way possible.
10. Lazer Station
Coming in strong with Exit as the third in a series of EP releases, we couldn’t be happier with the unique sounds each track from Lazer Station provides.
With The Beginning released in early December of this year, FAVORIT89 has already proven to be a force to be reckoned with through tracks such as “Interception” and “Memories”
Hailing from France, NINELITE with Under the Nightsky brings us soothing ambient sounds perfectly suited for letting the beauty of the city wash over you on a cool night.
7. Water and Bridges
Inspired by classic films of the 1980s, the first release from Water and Bridges dubbed Neon Skyline perfectly captures the feeling of nostalgia.
6. Neon Driver
Yet another more than worthy addition to this list, Neon Driver comes at us with the EP Outrun Overdrive that’s filled to the brim with high octane sounds.
Coming in with Tyranny in October, 87Super treats us to a wonderfully retro sound with fantastic tracks like “Night Wave” and “VHS”.
Debuted in October of this year, Polygrid hit the ground running with the extremely solid release, Infinite. Filled with wonderfully nostalgic sounds, you will especially want to check out “Castles Above”.
3. Jeremiah Kane
Hailing from Poland, it wouldn’t be possible for Jeremiah Kane to miss this list. Enough good can’t be said about The New Dawn, the first full length album for this artist that truly knocked our collective socks off.
An inspiration to all synthwave artists, Magnavolt from Sweden has been able to perfectly demonstrate a mastery of the signature style and sound that this genre has to offer. Be sure not to miss Missing Call.
Finally, we have Undervatten with Politics, an album that spans a wide range of the genre and shows off a sound that we can’t wait to hear more of. This is one release this year that you absolutely will not want to miss.
