Hometown: Windsor, Canada

Genre: '90s Rock

Why We're Excited: Josée Caron and Lucy Niles form Partner, a raucous pop-punk band that injects Weezer-esque stadium-rock jams with winning, wonderful humor. Take "Comfort Zone," an ode to self-care that celebrates mundane palliatives — "Frozen pizza / Sweatpants on / Loading up the next Dance Moms" — with fist-pumping zeal and a well-placed guitar solo.
