Nostalgic for the grunge era? Miss June, fronted by Annabel Liddel, gives off ‘90’s garage band energy but reworked for the new age. Take a look inside their world in “Best Girl.”
CHARLOTTE, Turtle Tunes
With such a soulful voice, you’d think CHARLOTTE is well beyond her 21 years of age. Her voice speaks of life experience and takes queue from soul roots of the past and present. Peer inside her heart and head in her video for “I Tell Lies.”
Amilli, The Orchard
Germany-born Amilli is an 18-year-old artist to watch. She challenges the female pop-star title with cunning lyrics and an alternative take on what it means to be a pop star. Watch her and her girl gang take on a night out in “Oh My.”

Onejiru, Broken Silence
Onejiru is what is created when you mix Kenya roots with new-age German sound. With lyrics created by her experience in activism, Onejiru emerges in the Reeperbahn line up as a-one-of-a-kind sound. Groove to “Higher Than” below.
Ida Kudo, Nordic Music Society
The Stroppies, Tough Love Records
The Stroppies merge slacker-rock and idiosyncratic pop to make a sound unique to only this Melbourne-bred band. Led by Claudia Serfaty, the Stroppies have risen through the ranks of Australia’s rock scene and make their way to Reepbahn this year! “Cellophane Cat” is their latest release.
Tusks, MRI Entertainment

Brutus, UK Full Time Hobby
Lead vocalist and drummer isn’t exactly common on a musician’s resume. That’s because it’s a tricky talent few can master. Lucky for fans, Stefanie Mannaerts of Brutus nails the title. She drums with a voice that “goes from spitfire melodies to heart-wrenching screams, to a soft, velvety hum.” Take a listen to Brutus’ latest song “Cemetery.”
