New Indie Alternative Tunes

As the vibrant spirit of spring blooms around us, it’s time to refresh your playlist with some exciting new tunes. This month, we’re thrilled to bring you a curated selection of tracks that capture the essence of April: from infectious indie pop to raw and energetic rock anthems.

So, let’s dive in and discover what’s in store.

“Hot Dad” by CARR

CARR, born Carly McClellan, is a singer-songwriter known for her knack for crafting fun, relatable, and witty tracks. Influenced by artists such as Avril Lavigne and The All-American Rejects, her sound merges elements of alt-pop, indie-rock, and pop-punk. This is her latest release, which comes right after her album, The CARR Show (2023).

This track is a perfect addition to any new indie alternative playlist, but it needed to be April! Plus, the lyrics are characteristic of CARR’s usual exploration of dating life:

You’re a hot dad that I wanna take home

And I think about it when I’m lying alone

You must have kids cause you never call back

Are you paying for them like you pay for my cat?

CARR’s electrifying vocals and dynamic instrumentation make “Hot Dad” a standout hit. This is probably why it’s a must-listen track for anyone craving new indie alternative vibes this month.

With its upbeat rhythms and infectious melodies, this track encapsulates the vibrant spirit of April, where new beginnings and fresh sounds abound.

“Fun” by CHAII

“Fun” by CHAII is a vibrant and energetic track that celebrates self-expression, empowerment, and individuality. CHAII claimed that this tune “came to life in the midst of enjoying NZ summer and subconsciously I was excited about everything that’s about to happen this year. It’s the ‘I’m just getting started’ song.

The song’s lyrics encourage listeners to embrace their uniqueness, let go of inhibitions, and have a good time:

Run run, I said run

Gotta run, be on time

Run run ’til the sun gone

Run run ’til the sun gone

No I aint done

Gettin’ started ’bout to have fun

Imma start party you’re goin’

You gone have you gone have

This track marks the third single release from CHAII’s highly anticipated upcoming album. Preceding this release was CHAII’s empowering anthem “Main Thing” in 2023, which emphasizes self-belief. “Drippin In Gold,” is a track that underscores the importance of staying focused on one’s dreams. In contrast, “Fun” takes on a lighter tone, serving as a cheerful reminder to savor life’s moments.

“Dance Before We Walk” by August Moon

You know it’s not Spring until there’s a boyband in the background, come on. If you’ve already seen the new Amazon Prime movie The Idea Of You (2024) you know that August Moon is a fictional boyband. Although fictional, many believe it’s inspired by the love life of Harry Styles and his speculated attraction to older women.

Whether you’re into the speculation or not, it’s undeniable that this is a Springtime song, hormones and all. It beckons listeners to embrace the present moment and revel in the joys of life’s simple pleasures.

The song encourages us to let go of our worries and immerse ourselves in the beauty of the present:

We’re gonna dance before we walk

Off the Moon, and I’m hitting the ground like a rocket

We’re gonna dance before we walk

Took a shot, and I’m putting it right in the pocket

We’ll take any reminder to live in the moment and celebrate the journey, wherever it may lead.

“Oh Shit” by The Libertines

The Libertines brings another raw and energetic track. It captures the band’s signature blend of indie rock and punk influences through frenetic guitar riffs, driving rhythm, and impassioned vocals.

Lyrically, it delves into themes of chaos, disillusionment, and self-destruction, maybe reflecting the tumultuous lifestyle often associated with rock and roll:

And she went

Oh shit, oh shit

Let’s make some money

Just enough to get us by

I want you when you smile

You got the dollars in your eyes

It’s a visceral and unapologetic anthem that resonates with listeners who embrace the edgier side of music. The song exudes a sense of urgency and rebellion. Another version of April for some, ’cause it can’t all be pink puppies and flowers.

“Sorry F-boy Confession” by Kakkmaddafakka

Only Kakkmaddafakka could create this candid and tongue-in-cheek song. This indie rock band originated in Bergen (Norway) in 2004 and consists of brothers Axel and Pål Vindenes, along with Stian Sævig, Kristoffer Wie van der Pas, and Lars Helmik Raaheim-Olsen. They’re known for their energetic live performances and catchy, upbeat songs.

This fun and relatable track captures the band’s signature blend of indie pop and alternative rock, while also offering a thought-provoking commentary on the intricacies of human connection:

I can’t even tell you I’m sorry (sorry)

Pride has me holding on

To a sinking ship, 10.000 tonnes

I won’t even tell you I’m sorry (sorry)

Pride has me holding on

To a sinking ship, 10.000 tonnes

Through playful storytelling and a lively musical backdrop, they help digest this honest take on love, lust, and the challenges of navigating the contemporary dating scene.

Whether you discovered a new favorite artist, found solace in familiar tunes, or simply enjoyed the ride, we hope our April playlist has brought a bit of joy and inspiration. Until next time, keep dancing to the beat of your new indie alternative tunes.
