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’re highlighting Julia Jacklin’s latest single, ‘Love, Try Not to Let Go’, which is both quietly delightful and unexpectedly explosive; Rico Nasty’s eerie, 100 gecs-assisted Las Ruinas standout ‘Gotsta Get Paid’; Jessie Ware’s ‘Free Yourself’, which sounds like a classic dance anthem from the first listen; Art Moore’s gorgeous, layered ‘Sixish’; ‘Whatever Fits Together’, the hauntingly delicate and shimmering lead single from Skullcrusher’s debut LP; Johanna Warren’s catchy yet subtle ‘I’d Be Orange’, which accompanied the announcement of her new album; PVA’s thrilling, propulsive ‘Hero Man’, taken from the band’s debut album Blush; ‘Cujo Kiddies’, the entrancing, playful new cut from Wisconsin-based band Disq; and Pearla’s enchanting ‘Effort’, the first single from her forthcoming debut album.
