The Deli Philly's Best Emerging Artists of 2014 Poll - FINAL RESULTS: 1. Sheer Mag, 2. Nothing, 3. Cheerleader & More

Deli Nation,

Our Year End Poll for Emerging Philly Artists was - as usual - a painstaking (and somewhat excruciating) process, but we do enjoy seeing what everyone has been into!

Kudos to rock 'n' rollers Sheer Mag (pictured and streaming) for winning the overall poll and and certainly impressing many with their debut EP 7"!

Also, big thumbs up to heavy shoegaze outfit Nothing, who released our March 2014 Record of the Month, and rising indie popsters Cheerleader.

Here is how it all went down: First, we let the local bands submit their music (for free), and got our Deli editors to pick the nominees. Then, we polled a list of 30+ Philly music scene enthusiasts/experts (our jury), and asked them to nominate 3 more bands of their choice each. We polled our local writers, and we also requested fans and readers to vote for their favorite. We tried to keep things open for each single genre, from Indie Rock to Roots Music to Hip Hop.

If you are interested in geeking out in all the subtleties related to how this poll works, you can read its rules HERE. But if all you care about is the awesome new music Philly produced in the 2014, this list is all you need. Enjoy!

New Video: "The Sunshine of Your Youth" (Live) - Cheerleader

Last October while local five-piece Cheerleader were up in New York at CMJ Music Marathon, they took a few moments to step in front of the cameras for Paste at Brooklyn's The Living Room to play the group's latest single "The Sunshine of Your Youth." The stripped-down performance of the intimately reflective song uses the comfortable elements of acoustic guitar and harmonized vocals, taking a look back while focusing on the here and now. As you ruminate, take a peek at the calendar where Cheerleader will be performing alongside The Wombats on April 23 at Union Transfer, which will be the kickoff to their nearly month-long tour.

Louds Opening for Cheerleader & Dream Safari at JB's Dec. 20

Starting as a familiar collaboration between brothers Pete & Charlie Brooks and growing to incorporate friends within the artistic community, Louds has set the bar relatively high with their single “Ways,” a highly contagious electronic blast of loose, fun energy. With its free-flowing iridescent tones meshing with clear augmenting lyrics and a constant danceable groove, the song is a promising first step as they work on their EP If More People Bought Art, More People Would Buy Art. Tonight, Louds opens the evening of performances at Johnny Brenda’s, which also features the inviting jungle-vibed electronic blend of synth/keys and percussion of Dream Safari, a.k.a. Chris Coulton, shining a steady luminosity in which movement proliferates. The vibrant, joy evoking tunes of Cheerleader will headline this bill of locals. Johnny Brenda’s, 1201 N. Frankford Ave., 9:15pm, $10, 21+ - Michael Colavita

New Track: "Tomorrow Always Knows" - Cheerleader

Indie-pop five-piece Cheerleader is getting ready to drop its new EP On Your Side next week. Today, we share with you their latest single from the album, entitled "Tomorrow Always Knows," which one can't help but infer to be a nod to their love of popular music. While its verses may feel like a familiar, sped-up version of an old-timey classic like The Dixie Cups' "Chapel of Love," you are instantly levitated and hooked once the song's chorus kicks in - "There's nothing to save you - a digital refugee..." Chearleader will be performing next in Philly on Wednesday, October 22 at MilkBoy Philly. (Photo by Carrie Davenport)
