This list includes new songs released fairly regularly, so you’ll never run out of fresh and great indie tracks to listen to. It’s music to trigger emotions, it’s rock ‘n’ roll! As you know music has the power to evoke emotion and we love it.
Indie rock music possesses a specific emotional cadence due to an attitude of perseverance, innovation, and nostalgia for tangible, physical experiences. This is the reason we love to rock too!
Talking about freshness now. An independent rock scene is a place that values innovation more than commercialism and therefore, produces fresh new music not influenced by trends or mainstream styles.
Indie artists have the freedom to experiment, use more creativity, bring new things and make life easier for us music lovers. That’s why we keep searching for new music and also accepting a lot of new press releases every day.

You can listen to our full playlist which contains the artists’ music, and know more about their work by scrolling down the page.
1) HELLO AMNESIA – UTYLGO
Hello Amnesia is a UK-based alternative rock band that’s bringing back that classic sound. I’m talking about the kind of music you used to listen to in your parents’ car when you would beg them to turn up the volume so loud it hurt your ears. The kind of music that made you feel like you were getting into something dangerous, but with a heart-pounding thrill.
In their latest single “UTYLGO,” the lead singer brings us back to those days with his powerful vocals and soulful lyrics. The track starts off soft, featuring only drums and guitar.
When the lead singer starts, you notice his energy straight away. He sings about what it feels like to be lost in the world around him. But then things get intense! The chorus kicks in and suddenly we’re being swept away by an electric guitar solo that will make you want to turn up your speakers even louder than before—and maybe even dance around waving your head like crazy.
“UTYLGO” is just one example of the power behind this band’s music; if you like what you hear here, be sure to check out their website for more info on how to find their other singles on Spotify and follow them on social media for updates on future releases!
2) I’VE TRIED SLEEPING – Without The Faintest Idea
Without The Faintest Idea by I’ve Tried Sleeping is a rock pop song with an alternative rock sound. The single comes from the artist’s album, I’ve Tried Sleeping which will be release this month. The artist is from Spokane, WA and is currently unsigned.
The singer-songwriter has a classic sound to his voice and songwriting style, which makes the song instantly relatable and accessible to listeners who are fans of artists like Tom Petty or Cat Stevens. I’ve Tried Sleeping has a classic rock feel that is balanced out by modern production techniques that add dimension to an already powerful track.
“Without The Faintest Idea” is an anthem for those who have been struggling with depression or other mental health issues. The lyrics are honest and raw as they convey emotions that many people have felt but don’t often talk about publicly.

The song is a combination of hard rock and alternative rock with a hint of grunge. It has a catchy riff that will immediately get stuck in your head. The vocals are strong and powerful and have a hard edge to them.
The instrumentation is heavy and distorted with lots of bass and guitar riffs that drive the song forward at a fast pace. There are also some electronic elements in the background that add to the overall production quality but do not distract from the song’s overall sound.

4) D3LTA – Hello
Hello by D3LTA is a banger. The single is a mix of Glam Rock and Alternative Rock, with a touch of the Europe Rock scene. The song starts out with an alternative rock guitar riff that has a classic feel to it.
The vocals are strong and melodic, and the drumbeat is active and steady. After the first chorus, there’s a short instrumental break with some piano chords that add some variety to the song. The second verse is more intense than the first one but still maintains its classic rock feel.
Athenian-born D3LTA has established himself as one of the most exciting up-and-coming artists on the Greek and British music scenes. This is since his third single, Strange, was released earlier this year.
His track ‘Strange’ was played on 40 of Greece’s biggest radio stations, many of which kept it on rotation throughout the summer, raising his profile throughout Europe and beyond.

5) THE MARGARET HOOLIGANS – Turntable Tribulations
The Margaret Hooligans are a rock n roll duo from the United States. The pair is based in Bala Cynwyd, Pennsylvania and they have been making music together for some time. Now releasing their album Turntable Tribulations.
It’s a 9-track project and is ready for you to explore. Their sound is a cross between garage rock, noise rock, post-punk, psychedelic, punk rock and a lot of quirkiness. They are a perfect example of what it means to be an indie hard rock band. “Pete And Roger” will give you a good idea about what they came for.
They have a committed attitude towards their work but still manage to maintain a playful sense of humour when it comes to their lyrics, and make use of their creativity. Try out “I have Something To Say”, we loved the guitar work and vocals.
They also love experimenting with new sounds which makes them stand out from other bands in this genre. “Oh Lord, Hit It” is a very good example of their freedom, including the use of some swear words to make it even more rock ‘n’ roll.
Their style in music has always been influenced by 80s artists like Joy Division or The Cure as well as 90s groups such as Nirvana or Pearl Jam. So if you like what you hear, check it out, visit the artist’s website and follow on Spotify.

The new single from MAXIMILIAN WENTZ, Your Silhouette, is a massive hit. The song is the perfect mix of pop rock and hard rock with an extra dose of amazing male vocals that make it one of the most unique tracks on the market today.
This single is a must for any fan of classic rock or hard rock. It has an old-school feel that puts you back in time—it’s like you’re listening to a song that could have been released in the 1990s or 2000s!
Almost 6 minutes long, Your Silhouette packs a lot into those minutes: it starts out with a guitar solo intro and then builds into an upbeat anthem with powerful vocals and heavy guitar riffs that will get your blood pumping!

7) RUBY NIXXONS – Keep On Keeping On
Recently, I’ve been listening to a lot of RUBY NIXXONS. This is a great indie artist who lives in Scotland and has been making music for quite a while now. The first time I heard him was when he released her single “Keep On Keeping On” last week. It’s a classic rock pop song with some hard rock elements and a catchy chorus.
I’m really into this kind of music, but not too loud, but this artist has managed to pull me in with his retro style. His voice is so unique, powerful and energetic that it’s impossible not to like his music if you’re into rock or alternative rock at all (which I am). He also has an unmistakable sound—you can tell it’s his right away.
It’s a catchy tune that will get stuck in your head for days. The chorus is simple but powerful, which makes it easy to sing along with. This song would be perfect for any party or just hanging out with friends. If you like this single, then I suggest checking out his website and following him on Spotify!
8) PATIENT LOUNGE – Hard Truth
We all know that music can be a powerful thing. It’s an art form that can speak to you in ways that nothing else can, and it can make your heart race, make you cry, or put a smile on your face. It has the power to heal us and help us feel like we’re not alone—and when it comes from an artist who’s truly putting their heart into their work, it’s even more powerful than that.
Patient Lounge is one such artist. Based out of Brisbane, Australia, they are an alternative rock band with a sound that is both nostalgic and fresh at the same time. Their new single “Hard Truth” showcases Patient Lounge’s ability to blend grunge rock with alternative elements of prog rock and catchy pop-rock choruses.
The song starts off with a great guitar riff before building up into power chords over the course of several minutes. The vocals are rich and layered, giving the listener plenty to enjoy as they listen through Patient Lounge’s rendition of what could easily be considered a classic song, a hit, and the soundtrack of most Netflix series.
After listening through this track several times over, I found myself thinking about how much I loved 90s rock music—especially alternative rock bands like Nirvana and Pearl Jam (both favourites of mine). But then again we are in 2022 and amazingly happy to find artists like Patient Lounge. Check it out, visit the band’s website and follow it on Spotify.
9) COMBINATOR – Re//combinator
Combinator is a new electronic rock band that has recently released their 7-track EP, Re//combinator. It’s a collection of songs that run the gamut from alternative rock to soundtrack-style beats to ambient and everything in between.
The track “Guest In Your Own Skin” is one of my favourites from this album. It starts off with some great guitar riffs and smooth drums before moving into a bass solo that sounds like it belongs on an 80s film soundtrack.
The song then goes into a groove section which makes me think of funk music, but then it gets darker with some distorted vocals and heavy synths—this section reminds me of both industrial rock and hard rock bands like Nine Inch Nails and Marilyn Manson.
The next track is “Things That Should Be”. This song has an electronic soundscape feel, with lots of drum machine beats and synth sounds that give it a kind of cinematic feel. It also has some awesome bass lines throughout the song which make it very enjoyable!
The third track on this album is called “Hide And Seek”. This one starts out with some slow, dreamy piano chords before breaking into more electronic sounds and even some horns! It also has some really cool synth loops and robotic voice effects. If you like this kind of experimentation fusion with rock, then this album is for you. Check it out, visit the artist’s website and follow on Spotify.
10) DOLL RIOT – Mrreowrr
DOLL RIOT is a band out of Oceanside, California that is making waves in the indie pop music scene. They’re a four-piece band with a unique blend of heavy rock, punk, and metal that’s sure to get your blood pumping.
The single “Mrreowrr” is just a taste of what they have to offer—it’s hard-hitting and super edgy, and it’ll make you want to listen over and over again. They play hard and punk rock with a hint of pop, with real-life topics like feminism and relationships woven into their lyrics. There is a wide audience for it, so it is appropriate for everyone.
If you’re into bands like Alice in Chains and Nirvana, DOLL RIOT is definitely for you. If those aren’t your cup of tea (or if those bands are too mainstream), then DOLL RIOT will still be right up your alley: they have a sound all their own!
They’re not afraid to take risks or push boundaries—they’re always experimenting with new sounds and textures, which keeps their music fresh and interesting every time you hear it.
