This band I just discovered and I know they will be on the rise. Nico Vega, a rock band out of Los Angeles, Califonia, has slowly been making waves within the indie rock scene and thanks to a show they played on Last Call with Carson Daly in 2009, their popularity has continued to grow.

In 2009, they had a very busy tour schedule with the likes of Bush, Gavin Rossdale, Semi Precious Weapons, Neon Trees, Manic Street Preachers and Shiny Toy Guns. In 2011, they have toured with She Wants Revenge and Blondie. In 2012 they went on tour with the Neon Trees. In 2013, they are set to tour with Imagine Dragons and Atlas Genius.

Their hit single “Beast” has already been used in many movie trailers and in the trailer for the equally amazing Bioshock Infinite.

With lead singer Aja Volkman’s amazing vocals and guitarist Rich Koehler’s great guitar work, I’d say this band has a bright future ahead of it.

Of all of the tracks, I recommend listening to “Beast.”
