Gracie Abrams' "Full Machine" & 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.

“Full Machine” - Gracie Abrams

Gracie Abrams has perfected the art of absolutely breaking your heart in two lines of lyrics: “I'm a shameless caller/ You're a full machine.”


“Tormenta” (feat. Bad Bunny) - Gorillaz

In unsuspecting great collaboration news, Gorillaz teamed up with Bad Bunny for a melancholic reggaeton banger that will thaw your February blues. (YouTube)

“Moonlight” - Kali Uchis

This going-out anthem by Kali Uchis exudes unhurried ease and self-indulgence, and is what we’ll be manifesting all 2023. (YouTube)

“The Day That I Met You” - Matilda Mann

“I forgave the world the day that I met you,” goes a lyric on this tenderly sweet song about finally being seen when everyone seems to look the other way. (YouTube)

“R U 4Real” - Gordo

This frenetic house sweat-er was already dubbed an anthem by none other than Drake. (YouTube)

“Bath County” - Wednesday

Right when you think Asheville indie rock band Wednesday can’t get any better on their grunged out suburban daze “Bath County,” frontwoman Karly Hartzman lets out with a body-shaking howl. (YouTube)

“pawnshop” - Kara Jackson

Steel and acoustic guitar make up a lush foundation for Kara Jackson’s modern witticism about love: “I’m not a liquidated asset/ I’m sharper than a jewel.” (YouTube)

“Cry Baby” - Nanna

You might know her as the frontwoman of Of Monsters and Men but Nanna’s solo atmospheric grit is a far cry from the band’s rock whimsy. (YouTube)

“Save Your Soul” - Tink

Tink’s R&B lands like puffs of confectioner’s sugar but it’s only to hide her cutting observations of dating culture. (YouTube)

“Star” - Sophie Meiers
