Indie Electronic

Joywave, the five-piece band from Rochester, New York, just dropped their first original track after over three years since their last album, How Do You Feel? Quite a long while between singles. We Are The Guard wants to find out if it was worth the wait.
We hate to break it you, but there is something inevitable that comes with living: Everything eventually comes to an end. This is the blunt message, riddled with anxiety, that Helsinki native Lxandra delivers in Flicker.
Hailing from the sunny confines of my hometown of Los Angeles, the musician known as Toyko presents his second offering, Stronger Love, to us here at We Are The Guard and, of course, the rest of the world.
We at We Are The Guard have another new artist for you. They’re a Minneapolis foursome called DEM YUUT and they’re getting ready to release their debut album, Liberator. Dawn/Sea is the first song we’re hearing from the band.
Kayex has debuted strong and our first impression is that they’re just what we'd expect from an Australian act. On their first ever release, called My Friends, the Sydney duo mixes house and soul with electronic-tinged funk in a genuinely relaxed and cool way.
IDER is what has been missing from the pop world. They prove anthems are always necessary in the genre. The new project is Megan Markwick and Lily Somerville who together perform just the right kind of melancholy. The duo sings in such unison when they sing, it feels as disciplined as a drill march.
