August was another strong month for new indie music. We do this list each month and focus on lesser-known artists that we think you should be aware of. Therefore, we don’t include artists with over 100K monthly listeners on Spotify, even though so many of them are amazing. It is always very difficult to narrow down our list to the top 15 songs as we get hundreds submitted to us each month. Submit your song here! Lastly, we try and keep this list diverse as far of genre and style of music so we are not always able to include every new song that we think is great. There are many amazing songs that we were not able to include in our list. Here we go ….

Bang! “All About Now” is one of our favorite songs of the year so far. Check out the super cool video for the song below! These guys are superstars in the making. Go follow them on Instagram and follow their journey.

Two Weeks in Nashville - All About Now

Speaking of superstars in the making. This powerhouse duo has only released 3 songs so far and they are all incredible. Their latest, “Kissing a Stranger” keeps them pointed to the top!

Check them out on Instagram and go listen to their music!

I remember the exact moment I first heard “Pass By” – It was one of the biggest “Wow Moments” I have had so far since I made this journey into Indie Music. How exactly can these guys not be famous? Keep it up guys and it is just a matter of time!

“We Wouldn’t Know” is our only “Country-ish” entry and it is a catchy one.

I’m no expert, but honestly, everything this guy has put out is crazy good!
