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 Armand Hammer’s dense, frenetic new single ‘The Gods Must Be Crazy’, which was produced by El-P of Run the Jewels; ‘dawn service’, the glitched-up, wonderfully layered pop song that leads Katie Dey’s next album; Sweet Pill’s pensive yet fiery new single ’Starchild’, their first for Hopeless Records; Maria BC’s hauntingly gentle, gorgeous new track ‘Still’; and Helena Deland’s calm, wistful new song ‘Strawberry Moon’.
