As 2016 draws to a close, Pandora has listed out some awesome artists to kick-start the new year with.

The Internet’s original streaming site , Pandora, has grown massively in the second quarter of 2016. With over 5.6 billion hours of music being streamed through the online radio service, Pandora has become one of the biggest streaming sensations of the year! Thanks to their extraordinary Music Genome Project, the online streaming service possesses the most accurately persuasive data. This data has even helped them predict next year’s hot trends in music! As a result, the service has made a special Artist To Watch List for 2017 that you need to check out right away.

The list includes a number of popular electronic artists, pop duo groups and a huge revival of synth-pop as well. Here are a few featured artists on the list.


This American electronic artist’s beautiful combination of the saxophone with electro-soul and funk has earned him a spot on the list.

2. Elohim

With a range of different textured synch combined with top-notch arrangements from the artist herself, we aren’t surprised to see Elohim on the list.

3. Marshmello

This masked artist is finally getting recognized for his sheer maestro and is likely to soon enter mainstream at the rate he’s going; having collaborated with the likes of artists like Far East Movement among others.

4. Lany

They may have a boy band vibe about them, but there’s no denying that Lany’s arrangements are both radio and remix ready. After all, if we can accept Justin Bieber’s musical evolution, we can surely make room for Lany.

5. Muna

Their debut album is set to release on February 3rd, but this Los-Angeles based trip has already geared up to take on 2017’s radio channels. Their impeccable harmonies and thick layers of synthesized tones have given their dark pop sound an edge that even the most hipster of music lovers can’t seem to ignore.
