Best New Indie Pop

While we’re all basking in the afterglow of Solange and 2 Chainz dropping a couple of nukes on us this past Friday, the pop culture world is reeling as titans Luke Perry and King Kong Bundy left this mortal coil earlier in the week. The crushing, never ending change of creation is the one constant in life.
Welcome back everyone to another edition of We Are: The Guard’s Best of Indie Pop. I hate to be rushing today’s feature a bit but I’ve got a baby in the oven waiting to come out and she literally can pop out any second. Perhaps today’s songs will help her come into the world a bit faster.
GIRLI "Deal With It" is the sonic equivalence of those light-drenched rooms the Swedish are said to occupy during the darkest months of winter. “Deal With It” is the electro-pop bop we need during these overcast and gloomy times.
Would it be shocking to say that the Grammys was a hot mess? I’m just glad it’s all wrapped up and we can finally move on to next year’s nominee predictions. I have all my money on the artists featured in today’s Best of Indie Pop post.
This is not the first collaboration between Theophilus London and Tame Impala’s Kevin Parker. In fact the song we’re here to talk about today, “Whiplash,” was initially recorded in 2016.
Instead of the Best of Indie Pop Songs this week we will call it the best of what the Grammy’s should have nominated. It’s our column so why not? The artists below are just as talented as the ones who are running for a golden trophy.
The buzz has been building since the October release of “Buried in the Sand,” and this week HÆLOS made it official, announcing their sophomore LP Any Random Kindness and releasing a brand new song, “Kyoto.”
