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 ‘Hey Big Man’, a raucous, Beastie Boys-esque highlight from 100 gecs’ surprise Snake Eyes EP that has already become a live show favourite; ‘Rotten Bun’, a gorgeous, mesmerizing introduction to the fantastical world of mui zyu’s debut album; MIKE’s latest single, ‘Stop Worry!’, a collaboration with dancehall legend Sister Nancy that contrasts his woozy style with a buoyant hook; Chubby and the Gang’s roaring Christmas banger ’Violent Night (A Christmas Tale)’; and ’in|FLUX’, the stirring, dynamic lead single and title track from Anna B Savage’s upcoming album.
