The 40 Best New Bands Of 2023

Hello and welcome to the 13th edition of Stereogum’s annual Best New Bands list. Lucky number 13! We started doing this back in 2010, and every year since then — except for 2014, which we skipped (sorry to any band that really hit it big in 2014) — our writers have taken stock of the past twelve months to spotlight the artists that have us excited about the future of music in any genre. It’s a fun task, and also an overwhelming one, because there are so many bands. And so many of them are good! So many of them are bad, too, but you won’t find those here.
