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 latest single from MUNA, the punchy and infectious ‘The One That Got Away’; Christine and the Queens’ 070 Shake-assisted ‘True Love’, a warm admission of vulnerability sung over stark, creeping production from Mike Dean; Militarie Gun’s hooky and visceral ‘Very High’, which leads their debut album Life Under the Gun; Arlo Parks’ ‘Blakes’, a danceable and wonderfully detailed track about remembering and rekindling a friendship; bar italia’s nervy, hypnotic new single ‘punkt’; Squid’s ‘Undergrowth’, a hauntingly groovy song about being reincarnated as an inanimate object; and ‘Good Ghost’, a gentle, heartwarming highlight from Steve Ciolek’s debut LP as superviolet.
