Hometown: Montreal, Canada

Genre: Electro-Pop

Why We're Excited: Men I Trust's effervescent pop splits the difference between ornate classic pop and chilled-out dance-floor fodder, for a sound that sands down every possible rough edge. In this case, that's a good thing: The band's slippery-smoothness is a big part of its slyly bouncy, easygoing, stress-free appeal.
