Best New Indie Pop

Best of Indie Pop is back at it again presenting the best of what the indie pop / alternative pop genre has to offer. It’s time to get down to business and catch up on what we missed. This week’s edition features THEY., Dillon Francis, Woodkid and more.
Karen Marie Ørsted, known professionally as MØ, is quickly becoming one of the hottest commodities to come out of Denmark since the development of LEGO blocks, and her newest single, Nights With You, further whets our appetite.
If you’ve ever been in love – or even had a crush – you know that feeling. That feeling that takes over you when you see the object of your desire for the very first time. It’s that surreal sensation that TYSM sings of for Wraith.
Hit N Run, the newest single from Swedish-born artist Francis Novotny, features a masterful blending of genres that brilliantly showcases of talents of the up-and-coming producer/vocalist. We Are The Guard presents what might be a genesis of an intriguing musical career.
They’ve just released their debut single, but we’re already hearing from Dem Yuut again and reviewers at We Are The Guard are not mad about it. This time, the new indie band gets a featured credit alongside fellow rookie, Webster X on Tick Tock.

Equal parts electronic and alternative rock a la Imagine Dragons, Austin duo Missio have been making noise with a showcase at SXSW last week, and the release of several sleek songs that kinda make me want to lurch around in a dark alley.
XYLO, the brother-sister duo of Chase and Paige Duddy are the Norwegian-influenced electro-pop We Are The Guard have been waiting for. School of Seven Bells were too dark and brooding, you say? You want something more poppy and upbeat but with the same look? Well now you’ve got it!

Melvv has come up with something special. The musicmaker, also known as Jeffrey Melvin, first got the industry whispering with electronic covers that are both complex and distinctly immersive. Now, the producer is proving himself with his very own original songs.
The latest songwriter to be fed up with writing hit songs for other artists is Los Angeles based songwriter turned singer Harloe. The wordsmith is trading in her pen for a mic because it’s the circle of life. Harloe’s breakout single, All In My Feelings, is in short...STUNNING.
