The Strypes
Hailing from the small town of Cavan, Ireland, The Strypes may not be able to get into an 18-and-older club, but that doesn't mean their tunes won't have your grandma swinging her hips. While acclaim from names like Elton John and Noel Gallagher may sway you, it's their big stage presence and Beatles-like swagger that will hook you. Influenced by the likes of Arctic Monkeys and Elvis Costello, these young'uns pay homage to guitar-driven rock, from punk to Chuck Berry. Expect a well-done Beatles cover as well as jamming singles from their debut album, Snapshot, just released in the States on March 18 after reaching the top in both the U.K. and Japan. - Britt Witt

Cut Copy
Originally the brainchild of DJ Dan Whitford, Cut Copy formed in 2001 and since then has played to crowds across the globe, evolving into a quartet along the way. Beginning with 2008's In Ghost Colours, the Australian group has become known for its accessible brand of synth-pop, best demonstrated on official remixes for bands like The Rapture, Death Cab for Cutie and Kaiser Chiefs. Their latest effort and fourth overall, Free Your Mind, expands on the sonic foundation laid before by the band's earlier work. With an evolving sound that recalls the late-'80s Madchester scene along with a splash of U.K.-influenced acid house, Cut Copy takes the title of its album to heart by taking risks and allowing fans to become immersed in the music. - Daniel Kohn
