Best New Indie Pop

What we’ve got here is the kind of pop style and songwriting strength (AND these guys make and write all their own tunes) that only comes around maybe ten times in a lifetime, tops. The Brooklyn based synth-pop duo of Jon Sandler and Luke Moellman have got every single box checked off.
CAUTION: There is an Alvin & The Chipmunks-esque high-pitch speediness to the beginning of this track that requires you to come prepared with at least a modicum of hype to effectively enjoy this incredibly interesting tune.
FMLYBND continues their quest to blend Grunge, electronica, and straight-up pop on "Wasting My Time," their first new single in two years. And we’re excited and honored to premiere “Wasting My Time” on We Are: The Guard.
Today’s top Best of Indie Pop column features ten artists who are doing music right. They’re all about delivering sweet jams that make you get lost in the melody while bouncing along to upbeat rhythm and have you singing along to ear-grabbing lyrics.
After listening to Sucker Punch several times in a row I feel sort of comfortable making the judgment call that Sigrid is the new new. The one we should all be paying attention to, the kind that can bring the world together through a song.
There are two things you should do each day. The first, dance like there is no tomorrow, and second, drop in and check out the latest indie songs that the team at We Are: The Guard has curated for you. Today’s featured songs come from FRDN, Sigala, Logic, LEON, and more.
Yaeji might be one of the most iconic names in dance music right now, with her muted warehouse ready techno beats and unique/magical vocal stylings that come together to form this whole amazing package of otherworldliness. She turns the chorus of Charli XCX’s original into a hook that really carries this bouncing beat along.
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.
College is a highly relatable song about moving on from a relationship when one party moves away. It’s a beautiful and honest song as well as the best response to subtweeting I’ve ever seen.
Youth is bleak. Few songs have ever captured the anguish of growing up the way GIRLI’s Young does. The angst and bombast feels earned here and you won’t mind as this song gets stuck in your head for weeks.
Bad is a song about heartbreak; the ones that hurt the most because you don’t see it coming. “I wish you treated me bad,” Lennon Stella sings in the chorus, and of course no one ever wants to be treated like dogsh*t - but it will at least justify the hurt.
