Current Push Artist

Even before Echosmith released 2013 debut album Talking Dreams last fall, the Los Angeles-based alt-pop band—composed of Sierota siblings Jamie (vocals/guitar), Sydney (vocals/keyboard), Noah (vocals/bass), and Graham (drums)—had begun ascending by leaps and bounds. Their breakout single ‘Cool Kids’ debuted in the U.S.’s Billboard Top 100, and they can lay claim to being featured on the 2013 and 2014 Vans Warped Tour. Stay tuned all month for exclusives including interviews introducing the band, and more!

Past Push Artists

Royal Blood mixes anguished vocals, ferocious drumming, and bass that provides intricate detail as well as a rumble of rhythm. Yet this wall of sound emerges from just two men: Mike Kerr howls venomous lyrics while Ben Thatcher drums with the controlled aggression of a young Dave Grohl. Now, hot off the August release of their self-titled debut album, Royal Blood have bagged the title of MTV’s October 2014 PUSH artist—and no doubt more accolades are soon to follow! Stay tuned all month for exclusive performances, interviews and more from this duo to watch.
The duo behind Jungle, J and T (otherwise known as Josh and Tom), are sharp and meticulous West Londoners who have racked up major views on YouTube and spread the word far beyond the music hardcore. You’re going to be hearing a lot more about these guys in the months to come — so to help you get to know them better MTV have named Jungle this month’s PUSH act!
Ariana Grande is just 21, and she’s already a music-biz record-breaker. Her smash hit ‘Problem’, featuring fellow breakout star Iggy Azalea, is the biggest single of 2014 to date—and made her the youngest woman ever to debut a track with more than 400,000 downloads in its first week. Now, with the album’s release sure to vault her even higher toward superstar status, Ariana is in the spotlight as MTV’s PUSH artist for August. All month long, stay tuned for Ariana exclusives including an exclusive audio stream of songs from ‘My Everything’ later this month!
Charli XCX has written and guested on two of the biggest singles of the past two years—Icona Pop’s ‘I Love It’ and Iggy Azalea’s ‘Fancy’—and opened for Ellie Goulding and Paramore on tour. Now she’s headed for superstardom as an artist in her own right. In anticipation of ‘Boom Clap’ becoming an epic hit, MTV have named Charli XCX July 2014’s PUSH artist! Stay tuned all month for exclusive interview footage, live performances and more.
