We’ve been pretty lucky here at We Are: The Guard. For the last couple of weeks, our job of curating pop music has been pretty easy thanks to solid material constantly being put out by both some of our fav artists and new. What this means for you is better music for your playlist. Yep, no need for you to waste time scrolling through endless blogs or waiting for Friday for new music because we got you covered with 10 indie pop songs that are anything but basic. Press play below and enjoy music from Boys Noize, Louis the Child, Bryn Elliot and more!

 

BOYS NOIZE - KILLER FT. STEVEN A CLARK

Most EDM fans probably recall the 90s single “Killer” performed by DJ Adamski and the man behind many unplanned pregnancies, Seal. If not, no worries because Boys Noize has you covered.  Inspired by Steven Clark’s voice and the 90s, Boys Noize took it upon himself to recreate “Killer” and deliver a close to the original sounding track that is perfect for the dance floor.

 

LOUIS THE CHILD, MAX - DEAR SENSE

Staying with a 90s theme, Louis The Child and Max deliver a colorful dance pop visual to accompany the good mood, happy go lucky electro synth tune that will no doubt be stuck in your head. This track is easy listening meant only to be played when you need a little breather.

 

BRYN ELLIOT - MIGHT NOT LIKE ME

“Might Not Like Me” is full of sass, attitude, and confidence. Bryn Elliot delivers a positive message to all the females out there. Her sound is polished and a step above than other pop songs that tend to trash on the other person. Hopefully, it serves to be an inspiring single to all the ladies out there.

 

LOOTE - BACK TOGETHER

A pop song so sweet with a voice that can easily persuade you to do anything is what you can expect from Loote’s single “Back Together.” The song is about taking a major risk that will most likely not end the way you wanted it to, but hey, it’s more about having fun and less about the consequences. Am I right?!

 

TRANSVIOLET - SMALL VICTORY

The opening scene for Transviolet’s video “Small Victory” is better than any SNL skit I’ve seen as of late. But really the song is exactly what the title reads, it is all about the small wins that make life that much sweeter and it is Transviolet that seems to have found the key on how to win at life, but not so much at bowling.

 

COL3TRANE - TYLER

It’s only a matter of time before Col3trane blows up, but until then you know you can count on us to deliver his freshest material. The RnB teen is creeping into the U.S. with powerful warmth and a swanky style that easily sets him apart from other artists trying to climb to the top. “Tyler” is taken from his mixtape Boot, available now.

 

ALLIE X - LITTLE THINGS

Dark synth-pop singer-songwriter Allie X delivers another little treat from her upcoming album Super Sunset.” With a hint of Ellie Goulding circa ten years ago, “Little Things” offers light and hope in a world of darkness.

 

LÉON  - BABY DON’T TALK

Three words for you: HOT, HOT HOT!!! LÉON has delivered a quality pop gem that speaks for itself. When talking about her single “Baby Don’t Talk” she simply stated "In the studio, I was talking shit about how sometimes when you’re in a relationship for a while, you don’t want the person to talk and kill the vibe. It’s like, ‘Let’s just have a good time.'”

 

MØ - IMAGINARY FRIEND

MØ is back with a softer sultry side, different than what we’ve come to expect, and surprisingly it’s a stunning piece that is as exciting as that sexy dance you’re about to bust into. That’s right play this one loud and let your body do the talking. “Imaginary Friend” is taken from Forever Neverland, out October 19th.

 

LOVE SICK - FEVER

Affliction and lust is something that can be a downright b**** to deal with. It hurts so bad that you can seriously get lovesick and have a fever that won’t go away. Luckily though Swedish duo Love Sick has a solution for those going through the mean pains and it comes in form of an 808 beat. The twosome will make you sweat out your tears and thoughts with “Fever.” Keep an eye on their debut EP Aesop out this November.
