Hometown: Brooklyn, New York

Genre: Pop

Why We're Excited: Amber Renee got her start as an Americana singer-songwriter in Atlanta, while Graham Marsh is a decorated producer and engineer with 16 Grammy nominations (and four wins) to his name thanks to collaborations with Bruno Mars, Ludacris and others. As CLAVVS, they've hit on a sleek and suitably mysterious pop sound that straddles spacey trip-hop and ingratiating pop, with notes of psychedelia to keep the mix feeling ever-so-slightly off balance.
