This Week’s Best New Songs: Vampire Weekend, Myriam Gendron, Waxahatchee, 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 Vampire Weekend’s Classical’, which combines the familiar whimsy of the band’s best work with bleak commentary and a great hook; Myriam Gendron’s strikingly emotional and honest ‘Long Way Home’, which the singer-songwriter calls, in a way, her “first pop song”; ‘365’, another poignant preview of Waxahatchee’s new album; Drahla’s ‘Grief in Phantasia’, the knotty and captivating closer of the band’s new album; ‘Imaginary Friends’, a darkly honest and beautiful highlight off Tierra Whack’s new album; Ride’s driving new song ‘Monaco’; and ‘Enough for You’, the entrancing first single from shoegaze artist Wisp’s debut EP Pandora.
