Every week, we fine folks here at We Are The Guard keep tabs on our favorite Instagram posts, lest you missed something. This week, we've got a heartfelt confession from FKA Twigs. You'll see Will Smith ride a motorcycle to outer space. Here are our favorite Instagram posts from this last week.
BEST NEW MUSIC: INDIE, ALT POP, CHILL
Here's one thing that our ears are almost certain to agree on – that this week's edition of We Are: The Guard's Top Indie Songs is among the best yet! Turn up the heat on your summer playlists with the following hotter than hot tracks from HONNE, Robert DeLong, Poolside, Lykke Li, Natalie Prass, and more.
For a very long time I have told anyone who would listen (and several more who would not) that every good cover song has to keep the core of the original but present the song in a new way. And DYAN’s cover of Cycling Trivialities does exactly that.
L.A.'s jesse saint john returns with his newest single, FAKE IT, encouraging us to do just the opposite. With jesse saint john's infectious blend of synthpop, futuristic beats, and shoutalong choruses, he encourages us to "go through the motion of emotion," "fake it until we feel it."

Darci is the newest neon light in nocturnal hip-hop. On My Own is the anonymous duo's tenth single, to date. The temperature rises with each subsequent release. Boiling point should soon be reached and we don't doubt we'll hear a lot more about this mysterious unit, probably before year's end.
