Hometown: Brisbane, Australia

Genre: Pop

Why We're Excited: A singer, songwriter and rapper who records under the name Mallrat, Grace Shaw is taking off internationally on the strength of "Better," an irrepressibly sparkling slice of dreamy pop. The only downside to "Better": If you crank it on the year's first spring day, your heart may actually explode with happiness. (Still, though, you should try it.)
