1) KID KOI – Who’s Dat
If you’re looking for a new indie pop artist to add to your playlist, look no further than KID KOI. The singer is based in the United States and has released a new single called Who’s Dat. It’s a fun, upbeat song that should get you dancing and singing along.
The song starts out with a catchy acoustic guitar and a very calm vocal that immediately draw you in. The male vocals are smooth and soothing, but they pack enough punch to hold their own against the heavy bass line that comes in. The melody is catchy enough that it will be stuck in your head all day long, but not so much that it feels like it’s been ripped from another song.
This track has alternative pop vibes and can be considered commercial because it could easily find its way onto the radio or into commercials for major brands. It’s also got Latin pop influences (the drums) and vocal dance influences (the heavy bass line). But what really stands out about this song is how much US Latin influence there is: from the vocals themselves to the use of instruments like acoustic guitar sounds and drums, everything about Who’s Dat screams “American.” Check it out and follow the artist on Spotify.
2) EVA NO – Batteries
If you’re looking to add some new Pop EDM music to your playlist, consider checking out the latest EP from Swedish artist Eva No. Her new release, Batteries, is an electro-pop album that’s perfect for working out or just having fun.
This EP has everything you could want in a pop album: danceable beats and melodies, female vocals that’ll make you swoon, and lyrics that will remind you why you love music so much. It’s got a little bit of everything: EDM, synth-pop, Nordic influences… all topped off with just enough humour and charm to keep things interesting.
The track with the same name “Batteries” is our favourite. So if you want something fresh and energised for your next workout session, or just something fun to listen to while enjoying the party, check out Eva No’s new EP Batteries! Listen to all songs and follow the artist on Spotify.
3) CHILDREN OF ZEAL – Moonlit Lullaby
We’re all about finding new music that we can’t stop listening to. And when we find it, we want to share it with the world.
Well, this is one of those cases. CHILDREN OF ZEAL has released a new single called “Moonlit Lullaby” and it’s seriously something special. The song was released on Spotify last month and the artist has been getting so much buzz over it that we thought we’d make sure you heard about it, too!
The single is a mix of industrial, electronic, synth-pop, post-punk and dark pop vibes. The vocals are male and there are some US rock and EDM influences as well—which makes us think this artist could have some serious crossover potential.
If you’re looking for something new to add to your playlist this week (or just want to hear something new from an independent artist), check out “Moonlit Lullaby” by CHILDREN OF ZEAL and follow him on Spotify.
4) SAHARA BECK – Her Kryptonite
Have you ever been so in love with a song that it made you want to just sit back and let the music play out? We are feeling like that after listening to the songs created by this artist.
It’s one of the most beautiful feelings in the world. You can’t help but get lost in its rhythm, its melody and its lyrics. And when it comes to indie pop, there are so many artists out there doing incredible things with their voices and instruments—it’s hard not to fall head over heels for them.

We will not even give many details about the five tracks, you will have to check by yourself and follow the artist on Spotify for updates about her art.
5) ALSA – I Wanna
It’s no secret that we love indie pop, and we’re always on the lookout for new artists to add to our playlists. When we heard about ALSA‘s new single, “I Wanna,” we knew we had to try it out.
ALSA is an Indonesian singer based in Jakarta who has a classic indie pop sound that feels both intimate and accessible at once—and her voice is just dreamy. She has a very distinct way of singing that makes you feel like she’s singing right to you; it’s almost like she’s in the room with you, reading your mind.
The best part? The song is super catchy! It’s impossible not to sing along when this track comes on—and even though there aren’t many verses, each one feels different from the last, it’s all about emotions and romanticism. You’ll find yourself wanting more after each listening; it’s impossible not to want more of this girl and her incredible voice!
We highly recommend checking out this single as soon as possible—and following ALSA on Spotify so you can see what else she has coming up in the future!
6) VANESSA BUMAGNY – Cinema Apocalipse
Vanessa Bumagny‘s new album, Cinema Apocalipse, is a journey through the many moods of Latin indie pop. It begins with a melodic and groovy pop rock which has a retro feel and will have you dancing in your seat. Then it takes you into art pop which is slower and more introspective, with richly layered vocals and a synth soundscape that will make you think of the future.
Then it’s back to high energy with nice female vocals and the Brazilian “gingado” that is very common in Brazilian Funk, it’s present on the drums. You’ll want to get up and move with this track called Tudo Está Bem, which is our favourite.
The middle of the album brings us some slower songs with fewer instruments accompaniment, its singer-songwriter style, and a mix of Bossanova and also Forró, two very popular Brazilian music genres.
While some tracks are amazing for dancing, especially in pair with your loved one, the slower tracks are perfect for taking a deep breath and reflecting on what’s been going on in your day.
Overall, the whole album has a retro vibe but also feels fresh and contemporary. Now check it out and follow the artist on Spotify!
7) FRIDAY NIGHT FIREFIGHT – Boxed Red Wine
The discovery of a new artist who can breathe life into our playlists is always exciting since we all have our favourite music genres. I’ve been listening to the new single from FRIDAY NIGHT FIREFIGHT, and I’m so excited to share it with you!
This indie pop track Boxed Red Wine is a wonderfully melodic mix of synth-pop and alternative rock. The vocals are soothing yet powerful, while the lyrics are simple but poignant. The song starts off slow and gradually builds up to an explosive chorus, which will no doubt get stuck in your head for days after listening.
FRIDAY NIGHT FIREFIGHT hails from Southampton, England and has been making waves since their debut album Invisible Kids. Their sound is influenced by modern electronic music, but they add an element of rock that makes them nostalgic, retro radio style, and stand out in their genre.
If you like what you hear on this track (and I know you will), check out more of FRIDAY NIGHT FIREFIGHT’s music on Spotify and follow the artists!

It’s time to give your playlist a breath of fresh air. If you’re looking for some new indie pop music that isn’t just all the same ol’ thing, check out THEHIZ‘s new single, “All My Love.”
This song is an anthem for the indie pop genre and will give your playlist a much-needed boost. The vocals are powerful and catchy, and the songwriting is top-notch.

9) PRESLEY DUYCK – My Someone
You’re looking for a new relaxing indie pop song to add to your playlist, and you’ve found the perfect one. Start with Presley Duyck‘s single “My Someone.” This singer-songwriter from Dallas, Texas has a soft band sound that’s both cinematic and relaxing.
Her music is perfect for a romantic evening or when you’re just feeling like chilling out. It’s also ideal for playing in the background while you’re working—some of us need music in the background to stay focused, and this is definitely the kind of music that will keep you going without distracting you from what you’re doing.
Duyck’s sound is very much about love songs—the kind that makes you want to curl up with someone special on the couch. But it’s not just the lyrics: the way she blends her voice with her instruments creates a soothing atmosphere that will help you relax after a long day at work or school. Check it out and follow her on Spotify.
10) WILD HORSE – Joy Ride
Wild Horse‘s new single, “Joy Ride,” is the perfect song to soundtrack your summer road trip.
The British alternative pop band’s latest track is a feel-good, upbeat love song with an 80s vibe and a classic sound that will get you singing along in no time. It’s got a commercial, radio-friendly vibe, but it also has some rock pop elements to it—so if you’re looking for something new that still feels familiar, this is definitely worth checking out.
The band is based in Brighton, England, but their influences are all over the map: from 90s American grunge bands like Nirvana and Stone Temple Pilots to the British rock bands of the 70s like Queen and Led Zeppelin (which explains why they have such a distinct sound).
