by nylon

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 10 of our favorite emerging and established artists including Years & Years, Junglepussy, and so many more. Turn up, tune in, and tune out.

"If You're Over Me" - Years & Years

Years & Years is back at it with a charming new track for you subtweet your exes with. 

"Stop" - Justice

This new Justice visual is pretty much a 2018 version of "D.A.N.C.E." Embark on a trippy adventure above. 

"MI Amore" - Frenship

Frenship takes us behind the scenes of their touring life in this warm new video. 

"wrong" - pronoun

Have you ever felt sorry for someone that you... hate? Well, you're in luck: pronoun took all those confusing feelings and turned it into this dance-worthy jam. 


After seven years, SSION is back with a infectious new record. With appearances from Sky Ferreira, Devendra Banhart, and MNDR, what more could you want?

JP3 - Junglepussy

Junglepussy has given up on being bitter about the state of the world, and has moved to caring less about the negatives so she can focus on the positives. Her latest album perfectly reflects this mental shift.

"Messy" - Kiiara

If Scorpios could be defined in one song, it would be this one. Kiiana's mood towards a casual hookup reveals that she's an overthinker with trust issues who secretly cares at heart. As a Scorpio: same girl.

"Yeah Right" - Joji

Joji's first new music release since February sounds like a fun dance song on the surface, but the lyrics reveal a tone of (relatable) sarcastic self-loathing.

"Twice" - Christina Aguilera

Do you even need a reason to press play? If it's by Xtina, it's going to be iconic (and she does not disappoint here).

"Lately" - Wet

Ever been in a relationship where you felt like you were giving so much and getting little in return? If so, this song will speak to you. Haunting vocals ask, "What have you done for me lately?"
