glaive: 16-year-old glaive is an artist hailing from the mountains of North Carolina who began making music at the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic. He released his first song on Soundcloud in April and his rise in the time since has been meteoric, supported by a steady stream of new music that quickly earned him acclaim and a devoted following. He shared his debut EP cypress grove this past fall, with The FADER naming the single “astrid” one of the best song songs of 2020 and The New York Times’ Jon Caramanica including it among his top tracks of the year. He shared his second, all dogs go to heaven, in August, with The New Yorker praising its “startlingly well-formed sound” and Rolling Stone citing standout single “detest me” as “a good example of everything there is to like about glaive.” He now has 1,015,391 monthly listeners on Spotify — a 101,539,100% increase after starting 2020 with just one.
ericdoa: ericdoa is from what he describes as a “small ass farm town” in Connecticut, certainly not known for its artistic output or community. Without many like-minded kids at school, he spent most of his time on the internet growing up, and met nearly all of his closest friends and collaborators online via platforms like Discord and Twitter. Eric grew up around a music-oriented family and was exposed to “raw ass pop artists” like Rick James, Earth Wind & Fire, and Teena Marie at a young age. When he started making music around 14 years old, these influences meshed with the music he heard online, and Eric taught himself to record and produce his own material.
it’s the new wave of the future!
