Chvrches

2 p.m. ET

The Scottish trio's infectious synth-pop is helmed by singer Lauren Mayberry, whose sweet, clear vocals belie fiercely defiant lyrics. The Glaswegians released Every Open Eye last fall. Watch Chvrches perform "Leave A Trace" for The Current.

The Heavy

Bombino

4 p.m. ET

The Niger-born Tuareg guitarist found a worldwide audience for his brand of desert blues-rock with the Dan Auerbach-produced album Nomad. His follow-up, Azel, is due April 1. Watch Bombino play "Tar Hani" at WXPN's XPoNential Festival via VuHaus.

Lucius

5 p.m. ET

Beloved for their powerful unison singing over catchy pop songs (along with their propensity for matching outfits), Holly Laessig and Jess Wolfe just released their second album, Good Grief. Watch Lucius perform "Born Again Teen" for WXPN via VuHaus.

Hinds

6 p.m. ET

Ana Perrote, Carlotta Cosials, Ade Martín and Amber Grimbergen make up the charismatic Madrid garage-pop band, which put out its debut full-length record, Leave Me Alone, in January. Watch Hinds perform "Fat Calmed Kiddos" for KEXP via VuHaus.
