Best New Indie

Look – the day after Coachella is NEVER fun. We nevertheless hope that this playlist – featuring The Weeknd, CHVRCHES, The Wombats, and seven other favorites – gets you excited for the good times still to come this festival season.
On Selfish, SAINt JHN reveals himself to be a Bad Boy with a heart of gold. We Are The Guard give our approval, and advise other rappers to consider spilling their complex, contradictory emotions. Especially when it's over sick beats and smooth synths like these.
Nottingham's Shelter Point will make you feel things with "Feel." "Feel" is a transcendental disco/house seeped in smooth, soulful vocals. It's warm, cool, detached, insistent. It's a contradictory dance tune that is that much more compelling for its nuance.
St. Vincent’s New York is one the best heartbroken anthems to come out in 2017 or any other year. Thankfully we get to revisit it in a rather different light today thanks to the West Coast duo DJDS.
America’s Favorite Music Festival just dropped their Weekend One schedule and now there’s all sorts of conflicts for the artists you do want to see and so much down time where you don’t recognize a single name. Well, don’t worry we’re help to help.
German singer/songwriter Bibi Bourelly's Dreamers is here to set the record straight, telling a whole new generation they can be anything they want to be. Dreamers is an almost unbelievably positive call-to-arms to never give up on your dreams.
Listen to this week’s top curated songs selected by the music experts of We Are: The Guard (believe it or not, we manually listen to EVERY song out there). A special thanks to Band of Horses, Drake, Tom Misch, Low Cut High Tops, Lil Xan, Charli XCX, and the rest of the top 10.
Evidently, it's been a fruitful week for music memes, but luckily for us, it's also been a fruitful week for REAL, ACTUAL music. Get ready for the arrival of festival season with the latest edition of Top Indie Songs, featuring Gallant, Beach House, SOPHIE, NONONO, Jon Hopkins, and more.
