The world discovered Desiigner by way of his debut track, Panda. Then along with summer 2016 came Tiimmy Turner and suddenly the industry woke up to Desiigner’s promise as the next big hip hop star. His latest release, Outlet, gives off just the same sort of larger-than-life power.
Bipolar Sunshine's very unique dose of pop and R&B fusion has given us multiple stunning covers, and his version of Coldplay's The Scientist is just as hauntingly beautiful. It’s the perfect soundtrack to a dreary, cold winter morning or just really whenever you need a good cozy cry.
The EasyFun remix of K.I.D.’s Taker is easy listening that feels as carefree as a Friday night out. If it weren’t for the familiar repetition of the titular lyrics throughout the track, this remix would be completely unidentifiable because where K.I.D. is pop, EASYFUN is electropop.
It's Friday, which can only mean one thing... Welcome to yet another edition of We Are: The Guard's Best Chill Songs! Featuring Autograf, Tülpa & BLANKTS, Rationale, Opus Orange, Oscar Key Sung and more, the following playlist is sure to offer a perfect start to any weekend!
What’s up Chella-heads? The world’s most important festival just dropped their annual line-up and it’s a doozy. I have compiled a playlist of the coolest / most interesting / best soundings artists in small font. Why?! Because I love music and I love you! Now hop to it and have some fun because every one of these artists is three fire emojis.
Valentine's Day is fast approaching. Regardless of your plans on Tuesday, The Guard's Best Indie Songs has the music that you need to get you in the mood. Featuring Blossoms, Future Islands, Ariel Pink & Weyes Blood, Crywolf, Father and more, there's something here for everyone to fall in love with.
As BitCandy undergoes its metamorphosis into We Are: The Guard, this weekly dose of Best Chill Music feels as vital as ever. When the drama and the politics get all too much this Friday, you can simply put on your headphones and restore some positive vibes with the following songs from Andrew Luce, Kevin Garrett, Bipolar Sunshine, Bruno Major, vōx and more.
If you miss classic Bjork, Bernache could help fill the void. The Canada native’s new song, Your Name, has the same clattering instrumentals juxtaposed with angelic vocals. Never heard of Bernache? Don’t worry, we haven’t listened to her before either. In fact, this is the singer/producer’s first release as a solo artist since being a member of the band, Man I Trust.
Vince Staples has finally released new music. BagBak is the first new song since last year’s Prima Donna EP and it’s just as fast and punchy as we would expect from the Long Beach native. The track is quintessential Staples with hard hits of the bass smothered by a high-styled sheen.
Like Someone In Love has been performed by greats such as Bing Crosby, Ella Fitzgerald, Frank Sinatra, Chet Baker, Björk, and other artists. Joining the notable performances is indie musician Bruno Major. With the help of indie artist Phairo, the two recreated the classic song into something refreshingly true to its jazz roots.
