This Week’s Best New Songs: Young Fathers, Sorry, Pool Kids, 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 Young Fathers’ sublime, entrancing new song ‘Geronimo’, their first in four years; Sorry’s propulsive, nervously euphoric new single ‘Let the Lights On’, taken from their upcoming album Anywhere But Here; The Mountain Goats’ latest single, the roaring, perfectly titled ‘Wage Wars Get Rich Die Handsome’; ‘Arm’s Length’, another catchy, radiant single from Pool Kids’ upcoming sophomore record; ‘Parking Lot’, a grungy highlight off Launder’s debut LP Happening; black midi’s aggressively chaotic Hellfire cut ‘Sugar/Tzu’; and ‘Go On’ by Panda Bear and Sonic Boom, which reimagines and builds on the Troggs’ 1967 track ‘Give It All To Me’ in hypnotic fashion.
