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.
We have more than a few songs to highlight this week, starting off with Soccer Mommy’s ‘rom com 2004’, a song that begins like something off last year’s color theory before producer BJ Burton “destroys” it, per Sophie Allison’s request, and the result is all the more colourful; TORRES delivered another confident and punchy single off her forthcoming LP; Lala Lala’s Lillie West considers the myth of Sisyphus through a different lens on ‘DIVER’, the majestic and rapturous lead cut off her upcoming album; Hana Vu made her debut for Ghostly International with the searching, evocative ‘Maker’; Morly showcased her powerful vocals on the stirring ballad ‘Wasted’; Bnny served up the minimal yet hypnotic ‘Sure’; allie, the moniker of Nashville-based singer/songwriter Allie Cuva, previewed their debut full-length with ‘listless’, an indie rock tune equal parts catchy, intimate, and dreamy; and ‘Finally’, the gentle, subtly gorgeous first offering from the debut solo album by Ohmme’s Macie Stewart.
