Every weekend, we bring you #SOUNDCHECK—your destination for the best of the best new music that's just hit the web, because you should always be prepared when someone passes you that AUX cord. This week’s round features 12 of our favorite emerging and established artists including Troye Sivan, BROCKHAMPTON, and so many more. Turn up, tune in, and tune out.
"Dance to This" - Troye Sivan feat. Ariana Grande
The world is Troye Sivan's dance floor, and we're just lucky to be living in it.
"1998 Truman" - BROCKHAMPTON
BROCKHAMPTON gets just as mad as we do when someone tells us "don't talk back."
"Love If We Made It" - The 1975
The 1975 pay homage to Lil Peep and reference Trump's absurdity in this track, which came highly anticipated after they dropped the lyrics earlier this week.
"you should see me in a crown" - Billie Eilish
Can we get this girl a throne?
"I Dreamt We Spoke Again" - Death Cab for Cutie
This dreamy single is the second one released off of Death Cab's new album, coming at us on August 17.
"Carb Yr Enthusiasm" - Miss World
Miss World takes a sarcastic look at summer fad diets and the concept of the "beach body," jokingly listing off all the things she's not going to eat this summer.
"Guess There" - Bully
You wouldn't think you'd want to watch a video featuring a snail family until you watch this—and then you'll want to watch nothing else.
Lamp Lit Prose - Dirty Projectors
The Dirty Projectors' new album is full of hope in a time that we desperately need it.
"Duet" - Frankie Cosmos
Find someone who looks at you the way Frankie Cosmos' Greta Kline looks at this test dummy.
"Empress In Reverse" - Tanners
Not everyone can write an upbeat bop about a topic like anxiety, but Tanners does just that.
Still Life - Katie Ellen
The breezy EP is perfect for cool summer nights, which has us annoyed that we're spending the weekend in rainy NYC.
