Every year SXSW Music Festival hosts a mix of new, up-and-coming artists performing on all different stages around Austin, Texas. Now they’ve announced 50+ Artists for SXSW 2017. Among the 50 artist there’s two Norwegian acts; ARY & Chain Wallet.

After releasing a strong debut-album, the Bergen-based pop trio Chain Wallet are ready for Texas. Their new single ‘Faded fight’ was premiered at NYLON with the heading ‘Lose Your Mind To Chain Wallet’s Artful, Dichotomous Sound’.

At 21, ARY hit gold with her electro-pop single ‘Higher’, and was earlier this year picked as the one to watch amongst a group of Norwegian and International music journalists.

– I’m incredibly lucky to get the opportunity to play. It will be my first time playing overseas, so it all feels very exciting, says ARY.

The showcase festival is a destination for global music industry professionals and international media, and it is best known for its conference, showcases and networking opportunities.

The ’50+ Artists’-list is a sample of the lineup for SXSW 2017. Much more to come in October.
