Best New Indie: 7 Songs You Need to Discover This Week

Essential weekly listening from The Darcys, Gorillaz, Art d'Ecco, Belle Game, and more

It’s been a good week for people who love great music. New records arrived today via Nine Inch Nails, Kamasi Washington, and English ambient house duo The Orb. We also saw the arrival of new tracks from the likes of Gorillaz, Oh Sees, and The Darcys featuring Leah Fay of July Talk.

We’d be remiss not to mention the release of our own Stiegl Hidden Studio Session featuring Norwegian songstress AURORA. You can watch that here.

The Pride Parade takes place this weekend, along with numerous other events. Don’t head into the weekend without a soundtrack, check out the Best New Indie below.
