Hometown: Montreal, Canada

Genre: Indie Rock

Why We're Excited: The Montreal band Corridor knows how to highlight its strengths while getting in and out of a song with maximum efficiency: Sung in French, "Coup d'épée" only needs a little more than two minutes to let its robust guitar sound — a kind of weaponized jangle — fully worm its way in your head.
