The Rising Artists Putting A Fresh Spin On The Rock Scene

Posted on June 04, 2018

It’s all happening for these up & comers 

Fact: Rock ‘n’ roll is alive and well. Young artists such as The Beaches, Greta Van Fleet and YUNGBLUD are amping up the scene by each putting their own unique spin on the genre and it’s impossible to not notice. 

Whether you’re a seasoned rock fan or just getting your toes wet, these acts are sure to please your musical tastes with their fresh, new sounds. 

The Beaches

The Beaches are an all-girl alternative rock band from Toronto. The band serves some serious rock ‘n’ roll attitude, and the girls have been praised as ‘the future of rock music’ by Noisey. The girls strive for authenticity in their songs, and play around with grungier sound.

Greta Van Fleet

Greta Van Fleet is a rock band from Michigan that has taken the industry by storm. While Greta Van Fleet delights the veteran rock fans, the band also brings a fresh, youthful and at times, alternative addition to the genre. Their energy and passion translates seamlessly into a full-bodied sound.


YUNGBLUD is a nineteen year old rocker from Doncaster. His take on rock includes a fusion of hip-hop and alternative genres. In true rocker fashion, the music often carries a poignant message, like the one he tells of generational misunderstanding in his tune “Psychotic Kids”. He also covers the controversial topics of sexual assault and even the gentrification of his hometown.
