    Charlotte OC - “Strange”

    Red sky at night is a visual delight in the video for this slow-burning song off of Charlotte OC’s upcoming Strange EP that peaks with layers and layers of her gorgeous looping vocals against flashes of her gorgeous self. MELISSA GIANNINI

    Ella Eyre- “Comeback”

    Every weekend playlist needs a feel-good, screw-your-ex track. Enter Ella Eyre, who belts biting lyrics over floor-shaking beats on her latest single. Because when you sound as commanding as this, it’s basically a given that any guy will come crawling back to you. Single ladies: Rejoice in your new power anthem. BANU IBRAHIM

    She Keeps Bees - “Owl”

    As if the winding guitar, kick-drum thumps, maracas, and smoky laments weren’t enough, my god, was that a sax? Damn, this song is a cure for pain if I’ve ever heard one. MG

    George Ezra - “Blame It On Me”

    Judy Garland taught me as a child that even when you follow the yellow brick road, it doesn’t come without some obstacles. Trade in flying monkeys for a team of overly aggressive rugby players, and, years later, up-and-coming singer-songwriter George Ezra is proving the same in the video for his latest soul-folk croonfest.

    J. Cole - “Be Free”

    Just listen. MG
