The Deli's Best Emerging NYC Indie Pop Artists: Ex Reyes, Zuli, Sam Evian, Surf Rock is Dead + 10 more!

Here's a recap of our Best of NYC Indie Pop Poll, which ended last Friday and highlighted some truly talented emerging locals.

We already celebrated Zuli, winner of the Readers' Poll, here

Ex Reyes, the project of New Orleans songwriter Mikey Freedom Hart, was the winner of the overall chart (and therefore of the "Best of NYC" title for this category - this chart adds to the readers' votes the points cast by our scene "experts," who nominated all the artists in the list). Rather impressively, this band has been consistently churning out quality, extremely sophisticated, soulful and somewhat loungy tracks that reveal the rich musical background of its singer/songwriter and the city he hails from. Check out the video for their break out single "Bad Timing" below.

Other artists who did really well in the poll are Sam Evian (same juror score as Ex Reyes, less readers votes), Surf Rock is Dead (3rd place overall and 2nd in the Readers' Poll), and Plastic Picnic (3rd in the Readers' Poll) - check out their tracks, streaming below.

New Haunted Homes Single Release Available for Streaming & Purchase

The new single release, "CoastGhost2Coast"/"Spooksville, USA," from Haunted Homes, stirs up the strange. The former eerily traverses desolate country terrain as one becomes conscious of the sounds that creep in the shadows. The latter bristles in a pleasant steady backend-anchored stroll, despite its lyrical nod to temporary existence. The quintet has a knack for rattling one’s thoughts in a memorable "cowboy wandering the cosmos" manner. You can catch them at Ortlieb’s on Friday, February 24 with Perfeckt Touch, Davey and the Chains, and Power Mystery.

FRTNK releases new video for "Let Go"

FRTNK (pronounced Fourteen K) released a new music video for their single, “Let Go”. This up and coming alternative hip-hop group, made up of Benjamin Aragbaye, Bryan Ramos and Barin Butler, collaborated with director Aaron George to help create this cinematically pleasing video. FRTNK, artistic and free spirited, wanted their video to be interpreted by their audience. In the majority of the video, the lead character keeps a sack over his face, leading me to believe that the bag is symbolic. With “Let Go” as the title, and with the flow of the video, people might suspect it is about letting go of a loved one, but here I think it is about letting go of what holds you back. Him taking the bag off at the end means that he is ready to, literally and figuratively, let go of what has been holding him back. You can now experience the art of “Let Go” by viewing the video below. - Kayla Hay
