Best New Indie Pop

We are back once again with a new list of the hottest indie pop songs. You won’t find them on the radio, but the artists presented today show us their best as they dominate the genre and give us all something to talk about, or in this case something to sing along to.
Is wanting a bit of everything really that toxic? Ask LA singer Evalyn and she’ll agree with me: F*ck no. Listen to her aspiring, middle-fingers-up anthem Cherry Lambo below, and you’ll see.
Drake & Rihanna’s Too Good was so inescapable in 2016 that I found it difficult to believe that I could barely remember who the original was by. I was so deeply engrossed in this cover from Jo&Me that my mind completely forgot about Rihanna and Drake.
Siphon is the newest track from Zola Jesus off of her upcoming album, Okovi, which is due for release in early September. We Are The Guard is ready to deal out the important four-one-one on this surprisingly strong effort from this indie artist.
Portland-based artist Liyv, a potential princess who has quietly entered the realm of pastel pop, has released her debut EP, It Me. Maybe I Won’t slows the pacing of It Me for a couple minutes with its brooding, powerful allure.
Up-and-coming electronic producer Prince Fox released a single primed and ready for commercial take-off. In Space, the production speaks for itself instantaneously, plain and simple. Prince Fox creates an effortless and infectious beat, melody, hook -- the works. Vocals are provided by Quinn XCII.
Summer romances aside, there is a bountiful amount of break-up tunes that have landed at my feet. If you are ready to patch up those wounds from failed love before the turn of the season, I present you a pop-friendly, easy-listening song by SIBA named Clean Break.
I know we are two months away from Halloween, but things are already beyond spooky. Here to lighten the mood are some fine tunes from ten of the best indie pop songs from the past week.
Tucked within the fine print of numerous music festival posters in the last couple months is the moniker of a particularly enchanting UK artist. SHELLS’ pop songs often sound quiet and contained at their start, but the sound blossoms on its own. Take Jailbird, for instance, an organic and intricate tune that sounds like a fitting end-of-summer anthem.
With the mass hysteria over the eclipse event this week, it is only fitting and even coincidental that Elohim just released her brand-spanking-new song, Eclipse. We Are The Guard has the skinny on this mysterious musician's newest track.
While all of you nerds were busy waiting to look at the solar eclipse I was locked away in the darkest corner I could find surfing the interwebs in search of audible gold. So turn your ears over to some ASAP Ferg, Clipping., Elohim, and the rest down below.
With so many distractions, we’ve made it easy for you to find the best new music. All you have to do is hit play on the singles below. This week we feature music from Dorothy, Leikeli47, Ariel Pink, and other standouts.
