- “Motorcycle Journey” is the debut single from London-via-Argentina band Oh So Quiet, who are like a gentler version of Local Natives.
- “Vampire” is the rocking, rousing new tune from Avers, who we’ve featured a couple of times. Take a listen to why so many music journalists and blogs were buzzing about them following SXSW.
- “To the City’s Core” is from Comet Gain‘s new EP, Fingerprint Ritual, which is available on Fortuna Pop! The fuzzy, punk-ish track is infectiously delicious.
- “Skeletons”, the bubbly indie-pop track by Trails and Ways, is a splash of Bombay Bicycle Club, a twist of Passion Pit, and a dash of Chromatics. It’s the lead single from their forthcoming LP, Pathology (6/2 on Barsuk Records). Click the link to read the origins of the song (it’s pretty awesome).
- “Forest Fires” is the stunning new single by Axel Flóvent, whose dream-pop is reminiscent of S. Carey and Bon Iver. Flóvent hails from Iceland, and “Forest Fires” is the self-titled, lead single from his new EP (5/25 on Trellis Records).
- “Marble” is the awesome new single from Bronx Cheerleader, one of our favorite discoveries since starting The Weekend Showcase. We’re still hopeful the band will release an EP or LP.
- “Zen A” from Surf Rock is Dead, another of our favorite discoveries, sees the NYC-based go more a bit more dreamy yet retaining the indie rock premise of their previous tracks. Like Bronx Cheerleader, we’re patiently awaiting a record.
- “Wait Just a Minute” is the jivey, poppy new single from Nashville duo Myzica, which may remind you of Robyn with its combination of a rousing chorus and electronic beats.
- “Feels Damn Good” is from Dallas band Repel the Robot who likes to consider themselves Robot Rock. We consider them a great electro-rock duo and their newest surprise release gets you moving to the beat.
- “Maybe You Can” by Minneapolis band Murder Shoes who are creating great female led indie surf-rock. With shoegaze undertones the single is from their forthcoming self titled EP out May 1 on Land Ski Records.
- “Break Out” is the stirring new single from London-based CRHØMA who have recently gained traction with their soulful vocals and energetic beats. They are definitely an up and coming electro indie band you want to keep your eye on.
- “Gods We Are” is a single from Savanna‘s new album that was released last month titled Dreams To Be Awake. The Lisbon, Portugal based band is displaying a myriad of experimental and psychedelic sounds similar to Temples.
- “Whisperer” from LA Font is some great indie based rock reminiscent of Built To Spill. Their newest track is from their upcoming release Hangtime Vol. 1 via Fleeting Youth Records on April 28th.
- “Blackhole” is from another returnee, London-based, multi-genre specialist Mvrie Celeste, who goes electro-pop on this stirring track. It’s the latest single from her upcoming EP, Animalia (May).
- “Pearl and Oyster” is the shimmering, garage rock-pop track from Montreal-based The Muscadettes. This is the debut single from their debut EP, Side A (4/21, PaperCup Music), from the twin sisters that is boisterous and feels huge.
- “Breathe” is the new single from UK based Youth Club who released a great EP titled Brothers earlier this year that went under our radar. Every single song they have produced is indie pop gold and we look forward to more from the quartet.
- “Twentynothing” is a little melodic rocker from False-Heads who are perfecting that garage-rock-punk vibe. The London based band came out with a great little EP last year titled Tunnel Vision and we are excited to hear new material from these lads.
- “Overgrown” is a Smiths-esque tune from London-based Crushed Beaks. The single is from their LP, Scatter, which will be released in North America on May 12 on Matilda Records and Moshi Moshi Records.
- “Trial & Error” is the new single from Brisbane, Australia group Calais, who have a new EP, Silhouette, coming out on April 21.
- “Alone” is the lush, lovely tune from London-based musician Nathan Ball. Much like haux’s single last week, it’s dreamy and gorgeous, making it the perfect closer for our playlist.
