BEST NEW MUSIC: INDIE, ALT POP, CHILL

We filter through a lot of music and shed off the joyless crap that nobody needs to hear. Today’s top songs come from Jungle, Jaira Burns, Perfume Genius, and yup, you guessed it, much more.
North Carolina cellist Kelsey Lu has been raising eyebrows and turning heads with a couple of noteworthy covers leading up to her much-anticipated solo debut. Lu's take on the smooth, soulful art-funk of 10cc's I'm Not In Love wraps the original in gauze, lace, and cobwebs.
If you caught Hozier on his recent tour in support of 2018’s Nina Cried Power EP, then you likely heard the Irish man’s take on the Destiny’s Child classic Say My Name. It’s a fantastic single that Hozier makes his own while still paying proper homage to the original.
Elohim's latest single and second collaboration with Skrillex, Buckets has her swagger and bluster on full display as the topsy turvy number takes you in a myriad of directions but always manages to satisfy with its primal energy.
American singer-songwriter Claire Guerreso’s gut wrenching tune Ashes is an emotionally raw and highly evocative number that pushes all the right buttons and delivers in a big way.
The music industry often gets off to a slow start at the beginning of the year. Let's ease ourselves into 2019 like we always do here at We Are: The Guard with the latest edition of Best Indie Songs, featuring Lana Del Rey, Radiohead, White Lies, Beirut, FIDLAR, and more.
