Best New Indie Pop
Portland songstress Liyv describes herself as That Weird Girl in High School Who Was Too Into Music. Her newest song entitled Like You Mean It is anything but typical. Though I am not quite sure what exactly is Pastel Pop, she might be the originator of this very interesting genre.
Combining several genres in his newest track called Talk Is Overrated, singer/songwriter Jeremy Zucker is surely capable of dropping a song that emphasizes his musical versatility, as well as talent. We Are The Guard takes a closer look at this youngster’s budding career before he rolls into LA.
A word of caution to all of you reading this week’s edition of our favorite indie pop songs: there is a 99% chance that today’s list will be on repeat all summer long. Let’s get started and hit play on Lana Del Rey, Dillon Francis, KolaJ, and other musical gems.
First Time With You is Kolaj's stellar single about love, happiness and meeting that special someone. Prepare to get your heart gushed. Kolaj’s voice sounds like a ‘90s dream; breezy, emotive, and reverberating with a simple but impressive prowess.
Former 2AM Club vocalist Marc E. Bassy dropped his new song, Plot Twist. We Are The Guard is eager to see if this jam is worthwhile on your summer playlist or just another love song gone wrong.
We Are The Guard want you to meet our new crush, Ashe: a songwriter from good-vibes, summery San Diego whose mission, it seems, is to get you idly ad-libbing alongside her to the tune of her infectious tracks. Check out Used To It, the catchiest pop song you’ll find this week. I’m warning you...
