Indie/pop artist, LAYNE, is ready to take the world by storm with her "agropop" sound and Hayley Williams-esqe vocals.
Hailing from Rapid City, SD via Los Angeles, teen singer/songwriter Layne Putnam has a clear vision of what she wants to deliver on her forthcoming EP, Warrior. Her goal was to write the type of songs that have inspired her through her life. "It's always amazed me that a song written by someone after intense heartbreak or loss can change the life of someone else. It is somewhere I can always go to not feel alone, and I want others to meet me there."
Check out "Warrior" below:
Warrior will be available on January 2, 2015.
You might remember Tiny Stills from their From The Indie Vault feature this past summer. The band just released an adorable new video for the song "15-17 Months" featuring puppets as singer Kailynn West's backup band and love interest. More bands need to hop on the puppet bandwagon these days. Watching that little guy shove Froot Loops in his mouth was highly amusing. This dancey indie/pop gem is taken from their debut album, Fear Is Like Flying, out now.

If you found yourself wondering who sang that catchy yet haunting song from the American Horror Story: Freak Show promos, look no further.
Melanie Martinez first dazzled us with her unique voice and bashful stage presence on NBC's third season of The Voice where she dominated on Team Adam. Now, the singer is showing the world what she's made of with her debut Dollhouse EP.
Featured as one of our Artists To Buzz About this past spring, Martinez shows no signs of slowing down any time soon. She just premiered her video for the eerily-pleasing, "Carousel." The song, produced and co-written by Kinetics and One Love, fits in perfectly with the Halloween season.
Check out the video for "Carousel" below:

New Myths - For fans of: HAIM, Warpaint, The xx
All-girl indie/rock band New Myths, comprised of Brit Boras, Rosie Slater and Marina Ross, are burning up Brooklyn with their haunting and ethereal vocals and killer chill-inducing melodies. With so much hype built around their newly released debut album, Give Me Noise, I was shocked to find that the trio was unsigned. Someone snatch these girls up! Maybe an opening spot for HAIM?
'Haunting' doesn't even begin to describe the sound of their debut. Cleverly released in October, this has the potential to be a Halloween party playlist favorite and a companion for midnight graveyard visits...if you're into that sort of thing.
Check out the video for "False Gold" below:
Give Me Noise is available now HERE.
