BEST OF INDIE POP - WEEK 44
The Best of Indie Pop is the column where we present to you ten human curated indie pop songs that we’re digging. Either you’re going to love them or not give a fuuudge about our selection, but usually, 10 out of 10 people that I’ve asked have unanimously agreed that this is the shiznit. So if you’re new around here stick around, we’ll give you what you’ve been craving. Let’s get started with music from Age. Sex. Location, Eman8, Maggie Lindermann, and more.
AGE.SEX.LOCATION - EARLY TO THE PARTY
When musically talented friends get together for a jam sesh anything including miracles can happen. That was the case when Age.Sex.Location got together and formed what is to become the next big band conquering the airwaves and stadiums workdwide. In “Early To The Party” A.S.L demonstrate just how special they truly are by delivering a sound that one wouls shrug off as another folk song, but rest assure this in everything but that. They bring the pep back into dullness and routine and leave you with a an aftertaste of hope and curiosity.
EMAN8 - AMEN
Singer songwriter Eman8, a.k.a.Brandyn Burnette, must be a true believer in a higher authority because he’s asked the Lord in prayer and the Lord hath giveth, and that’s something we can all be thankful for because his answer has resulted with a soul infused RnB pop single that will make you scream “Hallelujah.” Now go get yourself spiritually enightened with “Amen.”
JON BELLION - JT
“JT” comes off as a reflective track. The independant singer songwriter Jon Bellion seems to have taken a step back and see how far he’s come and how much further he has yet to go. But in what? His career? His personal life? Jon, are you leaving music? Are you going on vacation? Can you take us with you because we have sooo many questions and feel the sames. Call us, we’ll have our bags ready.
JOJI - WANTED U
Joji’s music takes you deep into a daydream state of mind that you wish could last forever. And with music videos that are as satisfying as his somber ballad of love you’ll be hanging on to this one for days. Watch as he takes us back into the 80s and the glam rock glory.
L DEVINE - NERVOUS
L Devine has nothing to be nervous about when it comes to creating ear pleasing pop singles … but when it comes to love we don’t have much advice to give becasue we’re pretty much in the same boat. We gift sausages in hopes of call back, but that’s never resulted in a second date. So yeah, we get nervous too.
MAGGIE LINDERMANN - HUMAN
“Human” I love, being human not so much. Maggie gurrl, you do not know what you are asking for. Bein human is not all it’s made out to be. There’s emotions to deal with, differences of opinion, and ugh people. Stay in the form you’re currently in and take back you’re wish and conitnue to make solid gold pop gems that bewitch us the moment we hit play.
ALLIE X - GIRL OF THE YEAR
Allie X seems to be wiser that leting herself be lured in by smoke and mirrors which has resulted in a beautiful mocking of the nature of some girls. In “Girl Of The Year” we find a struggle between being the perfect girl, but yet knowing it’s not enough because there’s someone right behind you ready to snatch your bea. The single also forms part of Allie X’s sophmore album Super Sunset available now.
CHLOE LILAC - SUMMER
The spirit of youth rebelion (one choosing not conform with societies’ expectations) and forever Summer is alive and strongly kicking in Chloe Lilac’s single “Summer.” With a loss of innoscene, Chloe takes us back to center and reminds us to give zero effs about B.S.
PETIT BISCUIT - SUFFER FT SKOTT
Petite Biscuit opens up in “Suffer.” With distorted synths serving as a sense of chaos, the Swedish artist takes listeners through the pain he went thorugh and relived when creatign the single. With the vocals of Skott, “Suffer” makes us all a bit more grateful for artists like Petit Biscuit who can help us relate and relise that we’re not alone with our struggles.
SIGRID - SUCKER PUNCH
Come on guys, do I really need to introduce Sigrid to you? Okay for those who are new, Sigrid is the next big thing! It will take about another year, perhaps less, for lame-o’s to hear her on the radio. But you get to hear her first. Yes she’s polished and hungry and ready to conquer hearts!
Aren’t ya glad you stuck around?! Tell me, what was your fav song this week. Seriously let me know your love comments, and opinions are much welcomed. We Are: The Guard and myself will be back with more indie pop treats next week.
