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 ‘Haffmilch Holiday’, the robotic yet eerily comforting debut single from Angel Deradoorian and Kate NV’s collaborative project Decisive Pink, which was inspired by the daily ritual of ordering haffmilch cappuccinos while working on their album in Köln; ‘Gorilla’, a highlight off Little Simz’s new record NO THANK YOU in which she sounds both remarkably loose and assertive; ‘Plagiazer’, a heartfelt lo-fi track from Rachel Brown’s new thanks for coming compilation You Haven’t Missed Much; and Crosslegged’s plunky and entrancing ‘Only in The’, the latest preview of Keba Robinson’s forthcoming LP Another Blue.
