Here at PopWrapped, we like to shout out rising musicians and, hopefully, capture the attention of their next biggest fans.

From pop stars to rockers, we have something for everyone, and we’ll feature a handful of artists and bands once a month.


Ula Ruth

Nic, Kevin, Tom, and Andrew are no strangers to PopWrapped at this point. Their dark pop sound is very laid-back, featuring catchy instrumentals and introspective lyrics.

Their last single, “Strung Out,” and their present one, “Nobody Lives Forever,” are probably their two most impressive songs so far. Both carry a mellow vibe, with “Strung Out” bringing a bit of seduction to the party as well.

Check out my interview with Ula last month here.

Stay up to date with Ula Ruth’s official website.


Jack Berry

Based in Nashville, Jack Berry’s sound is an intoxicating mix of rock and blues. The instrumentals in The Bull” are assertive from the second the track begins, reflecting its title well. Then Jack’s vocals come into play, rising and falling as his blues influence rings clearly.

His is the perfect example of an old-school genre mixing seamlessly with a contemporary sound.

The New Tarot

The New Tarot consists of sisters Monika and Karen Walker, who bring a mellow, dreamy indie rock vibe with much of their music.

The vocals in their latest single, “Heavy Metal,” will tempt you to close your eyes and just revel in how smooth the vocals are, how much the entire track just feels like poetry.

Check out The New Tarot on their official website.


Ruby My Dear

Ruby My Dear are a five-piece band with roots in trip-hop and jazz, evident in the playful rhythms of “Flourisher.”

There’s something simple and refreshing about the vocal and instrumental combination for this track and, towards the end, the beat picks up for a few catchy bars before building to a fun crescendo.

For more on the band, visit their official website.


Sleeping Lion

Sleeping Lion consists of Nate Flaks and Noah Longworth McGuire, who showcase an intriguing alternative/electronic sound.

In “Rug,” they combine hypnotic, almost-mournful vocals and a dynamic, seductive beat that ends on an instrumental high.
