Throughout the week, we update our Best New Songs playlist with the new releases that caught our attention the most, be it a single leading up to the release of an album or a newly unveiled deep cut. And each Monday, we round up the best new songs released over the past week (the eligibility period begins on Monday and ends Sunday night) in this segment.
On this week’s list, we have the incredibly catchy and energetic ‘Holiday’ from Turnstile’s surprise new EP; the equally memorable yet intensely ferocious ‘Pringle Street’ from hardcore outfit One Step Closer’s forthcoming debut LP; Shygirl and slowthai’s raunchy and infectious new collaborative track ‘BDE’; ‘Chaeri’, the pulsating, vibrant lead offering from Magdalena Bay’s debut album; the beautiful ‘Latter Days’, one of three tracks Big Red Machine previewed this week from their upcoming sophomore full-length; and Babehoven’s tender and affecting new single ‘Annie’s Shoes’.
