Hometown: Austin, Texas

Genre: Indie Rock

Why We're Excited: Not since Real Estate has a band captured such a keen sense of generalized, free-floating nostalgia. Hovvdy's "Petal" might as well come packaged with a bundle of sepia-toned home movies, each depicting a version of relationships and magical events we now strain to recall.
