Aditya Thiyag | The Chronicle

In a world where the charts are dominated by pop-rap crossovers and tik tok anthems, one indie artist has been silently taking over the underground scene. 27 year old Los Angeles native Phoebe Bridgers has had an eventful year, garnering four grammy nominations for her second studio album Punisher, a feature on Kid Cudi’s Man on the Moon III, and two Saturday Night Live Performances, one of which ended with her smashing her guitar to bits on stage. Her bold nature contrasting with her ethereal musical style has amassed her over 5 million monthly listeners on Spotify, and with a confirmed feature on the track “Nothing New” off of Taylor Swift’s re-recorded second album Red releasing this October, Bridgers is being set up for immense success in the near future.
