Hometown: San Diego, California

Genre: Electro-Pop

Why We're Excited:Jackie Mendoza sings in the sunny, dreamy pop band Gingerlys, but her solo work indulges different sides of her persona. As heard in the iridescent "Islands," her own radiant bilingual pop pulsates playfully, conjuring images of sandy beaches and hot pavement.
