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 Rina Sawyama’s country-inspired pop panger ‘This Hell’, the first single from her upcoming album; Harry Styles’ ‘Matilda’, a heartfelt highlight from his new LP; Sudan Archives’ infectious new track ‘Selfish Soul’; ‘Through the Fires’, the gorgeous new single off Angel Olsen’s upcoming record; Soccer Mommy’s heart-wrenching ‘Bones’, another incredible single from Sometimes, Forever; Special Interest’s propulsive, liberating new single ‘(Herman’s) House’, the New Orleans group’s first material for Rough Trade; IAN SWEET’s ’FIGHT’, a dreamy track that reflects on a pandemic relationship that didn’t work out; ‘Toll’, the subtly captivating third single from Naima Bock’s forthcoming debut; and ‘You Have Got to Be Kidding Me’, the confident title track that closes out fanclubwallet’s debut LP.
