The Deli's Best Emerging NYC Indie Pop Artists: Ex Reyes, Zuli, Sam Evian, Surf Rock is Dead + 10 more!

Here's a recap of our Best of NYC Indie Pop Poll, which ended last Friday and highlighted some truly talented emerging locals.

We already celebrated Zuli, winner of the Readers' Poll, here

Ex Reyes, the project of New Orleans songwriter Mikey Freedom Hart, was the winner of the overall chart (and therefore of the "Best of NYC" title for this category - this chart adds to the readers' votes the points cast by our scene "experts," who nominated all the artists in the list). Rather impressively, this band has been consistently churning out quality, extremely sophisticated, soulful and somewhat loungy tracks that reveal the rich musical background of its singer/songwriter and the city he hails from. Check out the video for their break out single "Bad Timing" below.

Other artists who did really well in the poll are Sam Evian (same juror score as Ex Reyes, less readers votes), Surf Rock is Dead (3rd place overall and 2nd in the Readers' Poll), and Plastic Picnic (3rd in the Readers' Poll) - check out their tracks, streaming below.

New Petunia EP Available for Streaming & Purchase

John Ryan, a.k.a. Petunia, shells out energetic, heartfelt songs on his new EP Funny Talk. Focusing in on personal anecdotes with universal implications, the songs ache and arch in a smooth yet sincere manner. Whether touching on fragments of memories or analyzing the present circumstance, the tracks move in unified melody with an alt-country surrounding that spikes when called upon. Imploring a rather immediate familiarity, it echoes points within one’s past without becoming predictable. Petunia is slated to perform on Tuesday, March 7 at Boot & Saddle that will also includes Tim Darcy (of Ought) and Molly Burch. (Photo by Amanda Wagner)

PEP releases single "Get Physical," plays Rough Trade on 03.16

Ladies and gentlemen, if you wonder who came up with the term “Nu-Wop Dreamsauce,” we can assure you it wasn't late Supreme Court judge Antonin Scalia (R.I.P.). The words, instead, are used by NYC trio PEP to describe their Doo-Woop influenced vintage pop. These ladies just released a new single entitled "Get Physical," in anticipation of their debut album, to be released later this year. It sounds like some African influences made their way inside that 'dreamsauce" - we likey! The band will be performing at Rough Trade on March 16. It promises to be a fun night.
