This Week’s Best New Songs: Camera Obscura, Burial, Dehd, 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 ‘Big Love’, the lush, jangly lead single from Camera Obscura’s first full-length n 11 years; Burial’s ‘Dreamfear’, which careens between ominous atmospherics, evocative vocal samples, and skittering beats across its 13-minute runtime; Yaya Bey’s ‘chasing the bus’, the laid-back, enchanting lead single off her new album Ten Fold; ‘Heavy Bag’, the sparse, gently driving fourth single from Ducks Ltd.’s sophomore LP; Dehd’s ‘Mood Ring’, an infectious song about falling for a boy with a motorcycle; and ‘Beautiful Boy’, a striking ballad off the Last Dinner Party’s debut LP.
