The results are in for our year-end Best Emerging New England Indie Rock Artist poll. The popular vote has elected Tall Teenagers from Providence, RI as our 2016 Deli Readers' champions for the Indie Rock/Pop category. They are a name we've been hearing a lot this past year and we are excited to see what 2017 has in store for them. We would also like to give a shout-out to Boston garage-rockers Mokita for giving them a run for their money.
In addition, the points accumulated through votes cast by our panel of jurors, and a third position in the readers' poll, crowned XR Tabs and their brand of experimental indie-pop as the Best of New England in this category. Check out their new single "Wet Fire for Edison the Unclean" and see what all the hype is about.
As always, we'd like to thank all of our artists, jurors, and readers for participating in this year's polls. Stay tuned and vote for all of our remaining genre polls! -Brian Varneke
