This Week’s Best New Songs: Nilüfer Yanya, Bartees Strange, Sharon Van Etten, and More

    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 have Sharon Van Etten’s ‘Used to It’, which hovers around hazy synths and tender vocals to create an atmosphere both haunting and warm; ‘the dealer’, the buzzing and hypnotic opener to Nilüfer Yanya’s new album PAINLESS; Bartees Strange’s captivating new single ‘Heavy Heart’, which anchors in an emotionally resonant chorus as it sifts through an impressive array of styles; Mallrat’s ethereal, pulsating new song ’Teeth’, taken from the Australian bedroom artist’s upcoming debut LP; Wet Leg’s latest single, the nervy yet boisterous ‘Angelica’; and PUP’s catchy and explosive new track ‘Matilda’, named after lead singer Stefan Babcock’s favorite guitar.
