We know that just like us, you're always looking for something new to put in your playlists. And because we're the best-est friend you'll ever have, we made it our mission to look for musical acts to make it easier for you to follow them—in case you haven't already. Here are 10 we totally think you should add on your playlists ASAP.

 1  R5

Genre: Pop Rock
The band just released their latest album Sometime Last Night, and their concert movie All Day, All Night which was shown for one night only. Here's hoping this gets a DVD release in our part of the world, too, because we want to see them perform their songs live—even just on our TV sets.

 2  Lawson

Genre: Pop Rock
Before you dismiss them and say they're just another Brit band, you should know that they have already toured with Jessie J and Bruce Springsteen. Start playing one of their catchy songs, like their latest track "Roads," and we're pretty sure you won't be able to stop singing and making your moves to them soon.


 3  Kingsland Road

Genre: Pop
Formed through the X Factor in 2013, Kingsland Road is famous for their fun cover of John Legend's "All of Me." But that's not all there is to them. After touring last year in the UK, the four-piece released their first single "Dirty Dancer" which gave them so much love from music-lovers.

 5  The Districts

Genre: Rock
It's hard to believe that The Districts is composed of members who are below the age of 21. Their songs sound like throwback tunes that will take you back to the '80s or '90s.
