This Week’s Best New Songs: Adrianne Lenker, IDLES, Friko, and More

    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 Adrianne Lenker’s sparse, lonely, and beautifully devastating solo track ‘Ruined’; Joanna Sternberg’s jazzy, affecting new song ‘Without You’; @’s whimsical new single ‘Soul Hole’; ‘Grace’, another enticing single from IDLES’ upcoming LP, co-produced by Nigel Godrich, Kenny Beats, and the band’s Mark Bowen; ‘For Ella’, a hauntingly intimate ode to classical music from Chicago’s Friko; and Punchlove’s ‘Dead Lands’, the Brooklyn shoegaze outfit’s engrossing new single about grappling with grief following the death of a family member.
