Best New Indie
It's the first week back at work after the holidays and spirits are at an all time low, but Los Angeles artist Ryan Marshall Lawhon, aka Mating Ritual, is here to give us the boost of energy that we need to get through to Friday with the rip-roaring How You Gonna Stop It?
Music was basically the one thing that saved 2016, and 2017 is definitely sounding as though it's going to be even better. On that note, grab your brand spanking new AirPods and enjoy a taste of what's to come this year by hitting play on the latest tracks from Gabrielle Aplin, Fickle Friends, Run The Jewels, Abra, Francis And The Lights and lots more.
The meteoric rise of Echos has been something to behold over the past couple of years, with the Portland duo having amassed a total of 20 million streams over their short career. It was only in October, however, that Lexi Norton and Tal Richards gifted their fans their debut EP – a self-titled eight-song collection which houses perhaps their most grandiose magnum opus yet: Gold.
Washington D.C. singer-songwriter Bobbie Allen aka Young Summer returns to gently pluck at the heartstrings with her devastatingly gorgeous latest offering – a cover of Billy Joe Shaver's Old Chunk Of Coal.
Enjoy one final dose of Best Indie Songs before the festivities begin from Jarryd James, Two Door Cinema Club, Francis And The Lights and many more. Just don't forget to support the featured bands, artists and producers by liking, sharing and buying their music using those iTunes vouchers that you're inevitably going to receive from your grandma on Sunday.
The Grammy Awards have been a hot mess for years, and 2017 looks set to be no different. But at least Parquet Courts are up for Best Recording Package, right? RIGHT? Anyways, moving swiftly on to this week's edition of New Indie Music featuring the definitely NOT Grammy nominated artists Poliça, Of Monsters And Men, White Lies and lots more!
Best Of 2016 lists are slowly but surely starting to overtake the music blogosphere (spoiler: Frank Ocean tops them ALL), but you won't find any of those here at BitCandy. Come with us into 2017 with yet another edition of Top Indie Songs from TOBACCO, Tove Lo, Theophilus London and even more!
