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 best new music segment.
On this week’s list, we’re highlighting the first single from Porridge Radio’s forthcoming third album, ‘Back to the Radio’, which storms through complex emotions with exhilarating defiance; the haunting and mesmerizing new song from Just Mustard, ‘Still’; Denzel Curry’s wildly hypnotic, drum-and-bass-inspired new single with slowthai, ‘Zatoichi’; Tacoma rock band Enumclaw’s soaring new single ‘2002’; Daniel Rossen’s gorgeously layered new track ‘Unpeopled Space’, the second offering from his upcoming solo LP; and SASAMI’s Squeeze cut ’Make It Right’, which pairs a bluesy riff with wistful vocals and hints of dissonance to captivating effect.
