Ebony Riley's "Deuce Deuce" & 9 Other New Songs Out This Week


Every week, we bring you #SOUNDCHECK — your destination for the best new music that hit the web over the course of the week. Because you should always be prepared when someone passes you that AUX cord. This week's roundup features 10 of our favorite emerging and established artists.

“Boy’s A Liar Pt. 2” - Ice Spice, PinkPantheress

“Blood And Butter” - Caroline Polachek

There are notes of Frou Frou and Cocteau Twins in Caroline Polachek’s whimsically weird (and somehow botanical-sounding) new single, “Blood And Butter.” (YouTube)

Bráulio Amado
“CSI:Petralona” - Westerman

Rootsy folk and twitchy electronica collide on British singer Westerman’s warm new song, an orange-tinged memory about one day in Athens. (YouTube)

“Echolochia” - Yves Tumor

This grimy, post-punk single from one of live music’s greatest showmen is laced with dark, tempting fantasies: “Just put me in a house with a dog and a shiny car/ We can play the part.” (YouTube)

“Gatekeeper” - Dylan Conrique

Young singer-songwriter Dylan Conrique builds tumbling, pretty melodies on her tender new song “Gatekeeper.” (YouTube)

“deuce deuce” - Ebony Riley

Model Ebony Riley makes a successful pivot into R&B with the smooth, languorous “Deuce Deuce.” (YouTube)

“Mama’s Eyes” - Mette

Mette’s incandescent “Mama’s Eyes” starts as a thumping house track before blossoming into a radiant, gospel-influenced celebration. (YouTube)

“Maybe I’m Lonely” - Rachel Chinouriri

Rachel Chinouriri’s stunning, crystalline voice can lace together a beautiful song with only an acoustic guitar accompanying it. (YouTube)

“stranded” - Babebee

Raging guitar, video-game bloops, and scruffy pop are blended into a delightful soup on Atlanta artist Babebee’s “stranded.” (BandCamp)

“Don’t Want To Become You” - NEZZY, Leila Pari

NEZZY and Leila Pari’s electropop bop “Don’t Want To Become You” satisfyingly builds to a grand finale. (Soundcloud)
