BEST NEW MUSIC: INDIE, ALT POP, CHILL
If you told me that dark, dirge-y electropop group MXMS tried their hand at recording a Christmas cover song, I would have laughed at you. But they’re totally part of We Are The Guard Indie Christmas compilation, and they chose such a fitting, epic song for the holidays that it could be the best indie Christmas song of the whole bunch.
Brrr. There’s a nip in the air, and it’s not coming from the weather. Dark pop duo MXMS is bringing some major chill vibes with their latest single After Night.
Here’s EMAN8's take on Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas, which has melted the borders and icicles surrounding my icy little heart.
You’re stuck spending another 48 hours with your family who have been slowly driving you to the brink of insanity when all you want for Christmas is some personal space. Well no worries. Slip your headphones on, connect to your parents' slow as hell Wi-Fi and tune in to the We Are The Guard Indie Christmas compilation.
The problem with music these days is that there is so much of it out there and not enough time in a day to listen to everything. It’s easy to let audible gold slip through the cracks, but we don’t want you to miss any of the indie goods so that is why we gather here today.
