4. D I A N A Born Again - I saw DIANA for the first time this year during CMW when they opened up for CHVRCHES at the MOD Club. The band came together after each playing in previous bands. Carmen’s (Army Girls) voice is so unique, it’s infectious. You can tell when hearing this band and seeing them live, that they were meant to play in a band together.
1. GROUNDERS Grand Prize Drawl - this such a good song. I believe this band has been playing together for about 3 years now but I just recently heard this song and got really excited. I think they’re off to do some pretty sweet things. And get a load of this music video! So crazy!

All in all, I’m really glad I made it out to this show.
