Portland Best of 2015 Readers' Poll Results Are In!

A few days ago marked the end of the Deli Portland's Best of 2015 Readers' Poll, spotlighting our varied amount of local talent. It's after a rigorous effort that we can now announce the Top 5 emerging Portland acts as picked by you, the readers. Enjoy, and stay tuned for the upcoming composite chart, which will include the votes from our jury! 

1. LiquidLight

Alternative rock outfit LiquidLight catapulted to the top of the charts with not only their easily lovable songs, but also with their fervent ability to get themselves heard! Tinges of everything from psych rock to early 2000's pop punk can be found their songs. Some only in small elements, but enough to make LiquidLight's sound specific to them. Say hello to Portland's best band of 2015.

2. Foxy Lemon

Sensually bluesy and devotedly oozing classical rock qualities, Foxy Lemon have crooned their way into the hearts of many of us, playing electrifying shows to a diverse crowds and immediately turning them into fans. There's a certain allure to Foxy Lemon that other can't be ignored, an obvious one that got them up to our #2 slot.

3. Coco Columbia

She's animated and delightfully pleasant, jamming out through her huge hair and eclectic style, making music that's just as colossally interesting. It's equal parts dreamy, electronic, indie and jazzy, the perfect blend for well rounded pop. 

------

4. The Cabin Project

The Cabin Project take a symphonic approach to indie rock, with their songs seeming to sweep over you like a leaves in a light wind. Harmonies and string sections flirt playfully, with weighty choruses and orchestral effects that elevate their songs to a whole other level.

------

5. Space Shark

Space Shark is an interesting band of sorts, taking the best of heady space rock and jam band minutia to manifest a low key heaviness. Their standout track, "Now Is We" off their latest release Ghosts, has been receiving much deserved praise for its perfect representation of Space Shark's forte.

------

Let's also give a shout out to Dirty Revival, Consumer, Rod, The Ghost Ease and White Bear Polar Tundra for rounding out the rest of our Top 10. A big thanks also goes out to all the bands that participated, promoted and worked their damn hardest to get their music heard. Also, a thank you to everyone that voted. We do this for all you guys.
