Best New Indie

I hope you’re all gearing for the long weekend ahead, and I know you're gonna need some fresh tunes. So, we offer you this week’s Spotify playlist, packed with songs that’ll make you popular with your friends and your next door neighbor. Let’s get lit.
Here's one thing that our ears are almost certain to agree on – that this week's edition of We Are: The Guard's Top Indie Songs is among the best yet! Turn up the heat on your summer playlists with the following hotter than hot tracks from HONNE, Robert DeLong, Poolside, Lykke Li, Natalie Prass, and more.
2018 is strange, and it looks like it's only getting stranger. While I try to keep on top of all of the madness, you check out the latest edition of We Are The Guard's Best Indie Songs, featuring Snow Patrol, James Bay, Courtney Barnett, and more.
As a community of tireless music obsessives, we know the FOMO (fear of missing out.) Luckily, We Are The Guard have got your back. We are a community of dedicated diggers and epicurean curators. Every week, we round up our favorite singles of the week on our Weekly Chart playlist on Spotify.
Hello and welcome to the latest edition of We Are: The Guard's New Indie Music, or as I prefer to call it, 10 Songs That Aren't by Kanye West. Check out the following hand-selected tracks from Childish Gambino, Gallant, HONNE, The Erised, Nothing but Thieves, and five other favorites.
Be sure to listen to, be sure to support, and be sure to share with your friends this week's 10 tracks from SZA, Cam, Father John Misty, Hobo Johnson, Highasakite, and five other favorites!
It's time to check out the top indie tracks of the last seven days. While we attempt to hydrate our way out of this Beychella hangover, you get your week started right with the following 10 songs from James Bay, Noah Kahan, Lykke Li, Slow Hollows, Battle Tapes, and more.
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.
