In our third installment of “100 Rising Artists To Listen To In 2024,” we’re coloring outside of the lines. While you may strictly listen to alternative or rock, this week, we challenge you to think outside of the box. Think outside the confines of genre, but most importantly, get ready to have some fun discovering new music.

Through an array of rock, indie, pop, punk, and, yes, put the two together, pop-punk, it’s time to find your next favorite artist. While we’ll always hold our favorites—My Chemical Romance, Simple Plan, Paramore…the list goes on—near and dear to our hearts, our New Year’s resolution here at idobi Radio is to fall in love with new music. And in case you missed the first 20 out of 100 rising artists you need to listen to in 2024, you can find them here

Keep coming back to idobi Radio every Friday from now through February 2, 2024, for the next batch of all new music and artists for you to obsess over. Without further ado, here are our next 10 rising artists (30 out of 100) you need to know. Happy listening!


BEACH BØNES’ debut single “Self Esteem” packs a nostalgic punch that brings us right back to the days of playing Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater. If you’re a fan of the game’s iconic soundtracks, take a listen to the song. You’ll know exactly what we’re talking about.

The band is fronted by Beau McCarthy, former guitarist/songwriter of the Los Angeles-based rock band All My Friends Hate Me. In 2019, they released a full-length album called Metal Butterflies (several tracks played on idobi Radio, including “Stay Up”). AMFM was even in an episode of the idobi Radio quarantine video series, ‘Tour de Session,’ in 2021. Following the release of the track “Shred” that same year, they went silent.

This new project is heavier and screams punk rock. McCarthy taking on vocal duties seems like a no-brainer, as his singing and shouting throughout the songs is the cherry on top of the fast drums and chugging guitars. Their latest song, “Nic Caged,” captures this perfectly. It instantly brings us back to the days of hearing artists like The Distillers for the first time. It’s just some good punk rock, and it has us excited to hear more in 2024. And hopefully see that energy brought to the stage before long (or maybe in a Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater remaster?!)! —Nick Major

Better Lovers

You already know them and love them. It’s, of course, Better Lovers featuring lead vocalist Greg Puciato (ex-The Dillinger Escape Plan), Will Putney (Fit For An Autopsy, END), and former Every Time I Die members Jordan Buckley, Steve Micciche, and Clayton “Goose” Holyoak. Having just released their debut EP, God Made Me An Animal, in July and their November single, “Two Alive Amongst The Dead,” the quintet is already taking over the metal world with gritty riffs and head-bang-worthy screams à la Puciato. Each member is seasoned in the genre and constantly willing to push the envelope. Not only does their music reflect the spirit of true metal artistry, but the band’s personalities make fans feel like they’re at home. Maybe that’s why this year’s first annual BLissmas sold out immediately and a huge portion of tickets are already sold out for 2024’s festival. 

The upcoming year is set to be a major one for the group, as they already have a spring headline tour with support from Foreign Hands, Greyhaven, and SeeYouSpaceCowboy scheduled. Additionally, fans are waiting with bated breath to learn more about Better Lovers’ confirmed debut full-length. After all, former Every Time I Die member Andy Williams said it best when he introduced the band at their debut live performance: “One thing that doesn’t happen in that world is a resurrection, where a band kicks fucking ass after a band kicked ass.” So, strap in because Better Lovers are here to kick your ass in 2024. —Maria Serra

Bronze Avery

Bronze Avery defies typical genre—existing in the sublime spaces where pop, dance, and R&B converge into a cacophony of dreamlike clouds. Channeling the essence of queer culture, his personal identity, and intoxicating sensuality, Bronze elevates these elements to an empowering crescendo. Prepare to be irresistibly drawn into his groove once his music takes center stage.

Splattering his creative canvas in 2023 with his addictive releases “THE ONE (IF YOU TOUCH ME),” “SEX IN THE ROOM,” “SCAN AND COPY,” and “IT IS WHAT IT IS,” Bronze Avery is the go-to king for impromptu kitchen dance parties or the perfect soundtrack for a top-down drive down the freeway. After starting this year on tour with Julia Wolf, Bronze Avery stands as the renegade of the pop resurgence. As he inches closer to stardom, we can’t wait to stand beneath his radiant glow and bask in the brilliance of his success. —Paige Owens

Good Hangs

The Chicago act has been hopping on large show bills like crazy this year. From opening for Every Avenue to Tiny Moving Parts, along with a Spotify Wrapped of one million streams, this pop-punk act is making its mark in the scene. With a sound that challenges pop-punk icons blink-182, their music features visceral emotions that emit from each song. It’s apparent in their latest single, “Local Scene,” that Good Hangs stands out in the new music world. If you’re looking to hang with the besties while getting existential, then Good Hangs needs to be dialed in as the soundtrack for the night. —Lizzie Baumgartner

Honey Creek

Need some new nostalgia-inducing pop punk to take you back to the early days of Simple Plan and Sum 41? If you answered yes—because, obviously, you did—Honey Creek is poised to be in your heavy rotation all 2024 long. The Milwaukee-based six-piece recently launched their four-track Self Preservation EP infused with tons of angst with a splash of alt-pop synths. Frankly, Honey Creek is making the sweetest (no pun intended) sad dance tracks, including singles “Dollar Signs” and “Burnt Bitter.”

We’re crossing our fingers for more tunes in the new year. Regardless, we highly recommend spinning the band’s 2020-released debut full-length record, A Whole Year In Transit, featuring fan favorites “Fast Times At Farwell House” and “Paper Roses.” This LP definitely offers Neck Deep vibes, which we are all about. Stay tuned to Honey Creek’s socials for upcoming tour dates because if you’re looking to mosh all night and make new friends in your local music scene, Honey Creek is the band to see. —Maria Serra


Bedroom pop is very much alive with Lyncs. A self-described “orchestra kid gone rouge” sound is heard through a range of instrumentals and beats in each song. Her sophomore EP, I Already Know The Ending, came out in September, which follows the release of her 2020 EP, Everytime I Find The Meaning Of Life It Changes. The new collection includes songs that sound more radio poppy with “Toolbox” and even taps into an early 2000s teen rom-com energy with “i burned my diary last night,” plus other genre-spanning tracks sprinkled in. Her ability to be dynamic while producing the same quality and energy is rare. She is certainly an artist to keep on your radar in the new year. —Lizzie Baumgartner


Bubblegrunge, power-pop, emo-punk, whatever you want to call Pollyanna, they ROCK. Nearly impossible to fit into a box, this New Jersey four-piece is grinding to the top at an impressive speed. Their 2022 album, Slime, pushed them to new heights with tracks “Lush,” “Acid Song,” and their pièce de résistance, “SLUT.” 2023 saw them produce a viral rock cover of Lady Gaga’s 2011 smash hit, “Judas.” 

They’ve shared stages with Pinkshift, JHARIAH, Honey Revenge, and State Champs for their 10-year anniversary of The Finer Things. Pollyanna will embark on a full U.S. tour this coming January to support The Plain White T’s. —Tate Logan


Across the vibrant soundscape that soundtracked 2023, the pop-rock trio senses—fronted by the charismatic Madison Taylor, accompanied by the skilled guitarist Josh Bissell, and propelled by the rhythmic beats of drummer Nick Sampson—has firmly established itself as a commanding presence in the scene. Through an array of releases, including their recent pop-rock anthem “playing dead,” the ultimate breakup revenge track “gonna make sure,” and their debut EP, take me out of here, senses has had a triumphant 2023. As the grand crescendo of their year, senses recently concluded The Speaking Our Language tour alongside headliners Boys Like Girls. After such a momentous introduction to the group, there’s no telling where they may land in 2024. —Paige Owens


Self-proclaimed “heavy-hyper-emo-pop” artist Superblood is someone you need to know. The Los Angeles-based act is currently recognizable as the spunky touring guitarist for TX2. However, Cam Rostami is creating quite a unique sound under his personal musical alias of Superblood

He runs in the same collaborative circle as emo act Smrtdeath, producer Mike Pepe, and other notable LA powerhouses—proving he is well connected in the scene. A multi-instrumentalist, vocalist, songwriter, and performer, he is bound to climb towards an even greater success in 2024. Check out his tunes “How To Survive A Shark Attack” and “Sicko!—Tate Logan

Young Culture

ANOTHER ONE! That’s what indie-poppy rockers Young Culture have probably been saying all year. 2023 saw them tour with Meet Me @ The Altar, collaborate with Daisy Grenade on “Jesus,” and play Riot Fest. In 2024, they’re scheduled to open for Between You & Me‘s debut U.S. headline tour. It’s impossible to ignore Young Culture. Their 2022 LP You Had To Be There dabbles with sounds beyond traditional pop-punk. Their unique approach to sound elevates them into a different sector in the scene. The group easily bridge into other musical territories. Honestly, we wouldn’t be shocked to see them on an indie tour next year. —Lizzie Baumgartner
