Best New Indie Pop

Day Wave’s music is an escape. Even though Jackson Phillips' first full-length album, Days We Had, won’t be released until May, I wouldn’t consider him a new artist. Since his first song premiered in 2015, Day Wave has developed a distinct shoe gaze sound. All of his music has a fuzzy quality to it, and his latest song release, Something Here, is also a bit hazy.
Who knew that love in the digital age between millennials could sound so darn cute and uplifting? Well, that is totally the case with producer Digital Farm Animals (Nick Gale) and singer/actress Hailee Steinfeld’s hot new single, Digital Love.
Seven years after releasing their last album Rock Dust Light Star, acid jazz legends Jamiroquai return from what I can only assume was some kind of faraway intergalactic odyssey armed with a heady dose of 90s escapism in the form of a brand new song, Automaton.
Chicago-based duo LOUIS THE CHILD described their sound as music that makes you happy, and that is definitely the case with their latest track, which is stirring up a ton of well-deserved buzz. The duo has teamed up with one of our favorite new producers, Elohim, to create a dreamy and blissful indie pop track called Love is Alive.
London-based duo SNAKEHIPS teamed up with rising songstress MØ on their explosive new single, Don’t Leave. But up and coming buzzed about producer, THROTTLE has just released his dance-infused remix of the track and we’re simply obsessed. The Australian new artist works his magic by adding a wonderfully infectious and uplifting disco-feel that we’re totally obsessed with.
New Los Angeles/New York duo POWERS come at us full force with their energy-packed and insanely catchy new single, Dance. It has all the ingredients of an infectious indie pop hit as it’s packed with welcoming oohs, hand claps, funky bass, playful and memorable lyrics, and a super fun singalong style chorus that will totally get you dancing.
Los Angeles based new artist NoMBe is releasing his debut album, They Might’ve Even Loved Me, single by single, and the song Wait is a sexy smooth track that we can’t wait to share with you today. His sound is self-described as electric soul, and he says his album is a “brutally honest account of romance, sex and heartbreak.”
