On Fridays, Billboard presents Tomorrow’s Hits, a weekly look at new and noteworthy acts making their way toward Billboard chart success.
She Is We
After making up half of pop duo He Is We, which scored the Adult Pop Songs hit “Happily Ever After” in 2011, Rachel Taylor returns fronting a new act (with a 2.0-version name), She Is We. The single “Boomerang” ushers in She Is We’s Vanguard debut WAR (March 18). The group will tour with We the Kings from March 16 through April 9, wrapping at West Hollywood, Calif.’s famed The Troubadour. –Gary Trust (@gthot20)
British singer/songwriter Declan McKenna, 17, is making inroads in America with his breakout single “Brazil.” The song climbs 32-26 on Alternative Songs, led by support at SiriusXM’s Alt Nation, where it was the most-played title (47 spins) in the week ending Feb. 28, according to Nielsen Music. McKenna signed with Columbia in 2015 and is scheduled to play three shows at South By Southwest. –Keith Caulfield (@keith_caulfield)
Florida duo Colours, consisting of post-hardcore act Burden of a Day’s former members Kyle Tamo (vocals) and Morgan Alley (drums), cooks up a career about-face with its alt/pop-leaning debut single “Monster” (think Purity Ring meets Awolnation). With notable airplay at WKQX Chicago and KBZT San Diego, the song introduces Colours’ first full-length, Ivory, released Feb. 26 on Victory. –Kevin Rutherford (@surfwax83)
