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 Sky Ferreira’s first new song in three years, the gleaming ‘Don’t Forget’, which is set to appear on her long-delayed album Masochism; Alex G’s new single, which is at once eerily noisy and strangely confident; Ganser’s propulsive, chilling new track ‘People Watching’; Tallahassee band Pool Kids’ irresistible ‘That’s Physics, Baby’, which blends nostalgic guitar pop with elements of math rock; ‘Dog Song’, a dynamic standout from Sweet Pill’s debut LP Where the Heart Is; Momma’s latest song ‘Lucky’, which feels both earnestly emotional and anthemic; and Rosie Carney’s ‘chihiro’, an enveloping highlight from her new album i wanna feel happy.
