Pinkshift, Jigsaw Youth and Yasmin Nur
Pinkshift is a fem-fronted rock band new to the scene from Baltimore. With writing inspired by 90s grunge and 2000s pop punk, the band walks the lines between riot grrl, punk rock, and post-hardcore. Melting together different musical roots through a common love for angsty rock, the band embraces their diverse backgrounds to create an authentic and powerful sound.
The band was born in 2018 out of Paul Vallejo and Ashrita Kumar's original project, Sugar Crisis. The pair met in college and started writing and recording a number of full-band demos as Sugar Crisis. The following year, they met their drummer, Myron Houngbedji, and chose a handful of those demos to play, as well as a new name (Pinkshift), for their first show. In 2020, Pinkshift adopted Erich Weinroth as their bassist through a Tinder swipe.
The band released Saccharine, their debut EP, in 2021 which included singles "i'm gonna tell my therapist on you," and "Toro/Rainwalk" to widespread fan & critical acclaim with coverage from Stereogum, SPIN, Kerrang, Alt Press, and many more.

Neggy Gemmy’s (FKA Negative Gemini) heartfelt electronic pop is built around duality. In astrology, Geminis represent polarity and though Lindsey French—the producer, singer, and songwriter behind the name—is an upbeat Sagittarius, her music has always been linked to that idea. The Los Angeles-based artist delivers sparkling vocal hooks alongside angst-ridden missives, and floating atmospherics with chest-caving bass. She’s constantly swerving and shapeshifting as her interests and surroundings change: no two releases are quite alike, yet within all of their DNA lies a magnetic songwriting sensibility that makes you want to sing, chant, and scream along with her.
“It’s easy to make instrumentals,” says French, underselling her meticulous approach to the craft, “but it’s challenging to make a good pop song that makes you feel something.”
ESPRIT began in 2012 as the sample-based side-project of electronic pop artist “George Clanton.” ESPRIT’s first two EP’s Girls Only and Summer Night are still considered essential listening for any newcomers to the vaporwave genre. In 2014, when vaporwave was still defined by its use of found music and manipulated samples, ESPRIT released his Virtua.zip LP composed entirely of original material. In the 3 years since its release, the vaporwave scene at large has followed this trend.
