Phox is a band of those goofy guys you really liked in college. Who always had the best taste in music and best chill sessions at their anti-frat house. You also liked them because they were always hanging out with that hot chick who could sign her ass off. That lucky girl was Monica Martin. Her voice is what chocolate melts too when it feels lonely. Her style is a modern Amy Winehouse House Wife had a cup of tea with Lianne La Havas. She's a tender girl with a crocked smile and a spark behind her eyes.
Haim (I've posted about them before on this blog, it's wild just to watch them blow up!)
The best way to capture this singing sister trio is to image Joni Mitchell as the fourth member of SWV. Yeah, that's really the best way I could explain it. These LA siblings have all that California lay-back hippie style mashed with the great sounds your favorite 90s R&B girl group has.

This Brazil girl group is not your average "girl group." Think Spice Girls if they were backed with a tough nasty political message behind their music. Scary right? But you are oddly intrigued. Their beats are soaked in that Diplo-like sound and that heavy sweat dance hall music Brazil is famous for. Right now I am looking to them for inspiration on bring my summer fashion to live. They clearly are pulling from the early 2000s for their outlandish digs. And it of course works.
First Aid Kit is a Swedish folk duo. I am not joking. But I can't get enough of these sisters. Sweden has yet to fail me on obscure and fantastic music (Robyn and Icona Pop as examples) Now First Aid Kit is less club pop music and more the soundtrack to an epic road trip or wild romantic ending in pure aching.
