Sometimes, Wednesdays suck. Your relaxed vibes from last weekend are starting to wear off, and the next one can’t come soon enough. It’s like you’ve entered the work-week tunnel and can’t see the light on either end. There is, however, a cure for the midweek slump, and that is new music of course! We’ve hand picked some of the best new indie pop songs to help pick you up.

 

BAUM - FUCKBOY (DULLBOY REMIX)

How could we not include our very own BAUM’s brand new release: a danceable, pop remix of her popular track “Fuckboy.” Teaming up with up and coming remixer dullboy, it’s got bass, it’s got drama, it’s got everything we love about the original and some new elements that just take it over the edge. Do not listen if you’re not prepared to dance.

 

BABY ROSE - MARMOT

DC native Baby Rose has got us in the palm of her hand. Her unique voice is smooth, full of depth, and sits atop a chill track on her new release “Marmot.” Put this on loop and let the meditative, sense of peace that “Marmot” evokes wash over you.

 

AVENUE BEAT - F2020

After picking up a ton of traction on social media, Avenue Beat have released their viral track “F2020.” They hit the nail on the head with this one and accurately describe the shit this year has brought upon us all.

 

RAYE - NATALIE DON’T

We’ve heard Dolly Parton beg “Jolene” not to steal her man, but now we meet Natalie. On “Natalie Don’t,” RAYE pleads in a similar way. The music video is gorgeous. Also doesn’t hurt that the song absolutely slaps.

 

GRACIE ABRAHMS - TEHE

Off of her introspective debut EP, Gracie Abrahms’ “tehe” discusses a relationship that isn’t working, but it’s easier to pretend that it is. With lush production, and her honest, conversational vocals, the track stands out.

 

FIJI BLUE - I SHOULD’VE TOLD YOU

Breakups are always full of regret. We come up with every excuse as to what may have prevented the end. On “I Should’ve Told You,” Fiji Blue wish that they could’ve told that person that they loved them one more time.

 

EMILEE - HIDE

Everyone needs that special someone who can “turn the black and white back into color,” and Emilee shares this message on her new single “Hide.” The gentle voiced internet famous singer has been steadily releasing original music and we are SO here for it.

 

ANGEL CINTRON - HOMETOWN

The typically pop-punk angst of hating your hometown has taken a new shape on Angel Cintron’s “Hometown.” The vibe-y, R&B track walks us through feelings of isolation and having ideas too big for her surroundings.
