This Week’s Best New Songs: The Beths, Naima Bock, Julia Jacklin, 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 The Beths’ new single ‘Silence Is Golden’, a propulsive, subtly ferocious track about “stress and anxiety manifesting as an intolerance to noise”; Dry’s Cleaning’s ‘Don’t Press Me’, the first single from their new album Stumpwork, which manages to leave a significant impression in less than two minutes; ‘Campervan’, the bleak yet mesmerizing new single from Naima Bock’s upcoming debut record; ‘I Was Neon’, the latest from Julia Jacklin, which maintains a steady pulse even as the version of herself that she sings about becomes harder to hold onto; Enumclaw’s hooky, romantic ‘Jimmy Neutron’, the first preview of their long-awaited debut LP; High Vis’ new track ‘Fever Dream’, which is equal parts dizzying and anthemic; and Pool Kids’ ‘I Hope You’re Right’, a dynamic, resonant track about “men who think they have perfect politics and nothing left to work on.”
