Hometown: Richmond, Virginia
Why We're Excited: A bicoastal kid now based in Virginia, Angelica Garcia pulls a rich array of sounds from a young life spent straddling boundaries and transcending barriers. Tapping into her family's Mexican and Salvadoran roots, Garcia peppers her compositions with traditional sounds, only to chop them up into exhilarating blasts of defiance and uplift. Her new album, Cha Cha Palace, is a spiky burst of sleek pop that feels forward-looking at every turn.
