Genre: Indie-Rock

Why We're Excited: Doe makes snide exasperation sound like a party. Take "Sincere," in which singer-guitarist Nicola Leel takes apart a sanctimonious phony with plainspoken language and grandly pummeling riffs. The song works as a punishing takedown, for sure, but it's also perfectly geared toward beer-sodden singing along.
