Best New Indie

LA's jesse saint john has an impressive resume for someone just releasing their first single. He's already written songs and singles for Britney Spears, Charli XCX, LAUV and Brooke Candy, as well as guesting on a track on the soundtrack for Fox's Empire.
As long as there are people like you around to listen, authentic, engaging, and interesting artists will continue to have an audience. This is Week 6 of We Are The Guard's New Indie Music, featuring TOKiMONSTA, PLYA, courtship., and many more.
Adrenaline is a self-explanatory name and perhaps the defining release from this rookie ensemble. Infectious and filled with electricity, there is no dull moment in this 3-plus minute electro-pop number.
We’ve got a romantically wistful song today from a mysterious London artist that will have you all choked up like Kesha did on Sunday night. Listen to new, emerging artist Lokki’s single, I Catch You below.
If the awards ceremony has left you fearing for the future of music, then we're here to help. There's still a TON of engaging music out there waiting to be discovered, like these tracks from Dashboard Confessional, James Blake, George Ezra, and seven more.
The start of a new year also means a new beginning for your playlist. We Are The Guard presents a soft and lofty track all the way from down under, songstress KM delights us with her single Downside.
Let's raise our glasses to Dolores O'Riordan and her timeless oeuvre, because let's face it – we likely wouldn't be music fans or creators without it. Here are the Best Indie Songs of Week 4 from Beck, Cashmere Cat, EDEN, Young Fathers, Sylvan Esso, and more.
Young Fathers invite the listener to question absolutely everything entering their nervous system. In My View is right proper Millennial hip-hop, speaking truth to power with earnestness, intellect, a unique viewpoint, and aesthetics.
The past, present, and future of Punk intersect in Still Alive. The Spook School feature a kind of snarky New Wave vocal style, in line with The Stranglers, Devo, or the Dead Kennedys’ Jello Biafra.
As January continues to drag on, we're making sure that you have everything that you need to get through this harsh winter with yet another edition of New Indie Music. Featuring MGMT, First Aid Kit, Nina Nesbitt, and lots more, there's something here for everyone!
If you are reading this on We Are The Guard, welcome to a new year of hope, possibilities, and new music. The first one of the year is actually provided by something the Frills released at the end of last year named We Can Be Friends.
If you haven’t heard of Superorganism yet, they’ll be your first obsession of the year. Think of them as a super-indie/hipster version of supergroups like Broken Social Scene, or Brockhampton. Listen and watch their video, Everybody Wants to Be Famous.
