When two disparate genres are combined, it can be hard to know what to expect. But in the case of Southwire, the combination of hip-hop and folk creates a sound that actually deserves the commonly thrown around label of unique. Blending down-home instrumentation with excellent vocals, Southwire creates brilliant tracks like "Brother" that evoke gospel rhythms as they feel incredibly fresh. It's rare to find artists that create something as interestingly new as this, and it should be fascinating to see more of Southwire this year!
