Best New Indie Pop

We are back babeeeez with a playlist so hot that we were prohibited from playing on Earth Day for fear of global warming. Me, myself, and ten indie pop songs are here to add some sparkle to your day. We have to get (...)
Our love for Indie Pop music is more real than the bond that holds Justin Beiber and Hailey, it’s stronger than the snatching grip of a Kardashian. We’ve basically sold our social and free time in exchange for music (...)
Our Best of Indie Pop Songs column says a lot about the times we live in. It also says a lot about the people who tune in every week to discover new songs, so our advice to you that you didn’t ask for is … you better tune in because you don’t want to miss this week’s music highlights.
As my half-awake brain types this week’s pop music highlights all I ask is that you turn up the volume now because we’re diving straight into 10 curated songs that you should know about.
While we’re all basking in the afterglow of Solange and 2 Chainz dropping a couple of nukes on us this past Friday, the pop culture world is reeling as titans Luke Perry and King Kong Bundy left this mortal coil earlier in the week. The crushing, never ending change of creation is the one constant in life.
Welcome back everyone to another edition of We Are: The Guard’s Best of Indie Pop. I hate to be rushing today’s feature a bit but I’ve got a baby in the oven waiting to come out and she literally can pop out any second. Perhaps today’s songs will help her come into the world a bit faster.
Would it be shocking to say that the Grammys was a hot mess? I’m just glad it’s all wrapped up and we can finally move on to next year’s nominee predictions. I have all my money on the artists featured in today’s Best of Indie Pop post.
Instead of the Best of Indie Pop Songs this week we will call it the best of what the Grammy’s should have nominated. It’s our column so why not? The artists below are just as talented as the ones who are running for a golden trophy.
If you’re feeling overwhelmed and don’t know where to start you can always turn on the radio and hear the same songs over and over on repeat all day and miss out on the freshest indie pop songs being released … or, you can swing by our Best of Indie Pop playlist on Spotify and listen to all the latest pieces we are loving.
Let’s take a listen to what the fine curators and staff at We Are: The Guard have filtered for you. You can leave your opinion on our Instagram feed or send us a Tweet, or Facebook us, we’ll read your fan and hate mail and respond to you accordingly. Now … to the music!
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.
We’re like iHop, except that instead of all you can eat stacks of pancakes, it’s all you can listen to music that will leave you feeling like you’re high up on a giant stack of pancakes. The featured songs below will be like maple syrup dripping all of your senses.
