“Heaven (feat. Tinashe)” - Shygirl

With its dazzling tropical fantasy music video, Shygirl’s “Heaven” rework with Tinashe sounds like hyperpop made for mermaids. (YouTube)

“Mike (desert island duvet)” - Fred again.., The Streets, Dermot Kennedy

Fred again.. turns the tender poetry of rappers The Streets and Dermot Kennedy into a chest-panging ‘90s house jam. (YouTube)

“on the street” (feat. J. Cole) - j-hope

There’s incindiary chemistry between j-hope and J. Cole on the BTS rapper’s warmhearted “see you later” to his fans. (YouTube)

“Not Strong Enough” - boygenius

Every progressive listen of boygenius’ emotionally colossal new single gets better and better. (YouTube)

“Bang Bang” - Momma

Momma, NYLON’s prediction of indie rock’s next “It” band, delivers some really delicious ‘90s and early ’00s guitar angst and signature big-arena hooks on “Bang Bang.” (YouTube)

Billy Zammit
“F U Goodbye” - Peach PRC

Peach PRC’s slick flip and interpolation of hellogoodbye’s “here in your arms” on her latest is *chef’s kiss.* (YouTube)

Arabian nights meet DIY bedroom pop on eclectic East New York song-maker Ernest Rareberrg’s “Pirelli.” (YouTube)

“Need You Like” - May Rio

May Rio’s ascetic troll anti-love anthem (watch the music video) is a wondrous concoction: squiggly synths, plinky drums, and her own cartoonish croon. (YouTube)

“Hard To Be” - Arlissa

Ditching an untrustworthy partner has never sounded so easy on Arlissa’s weightless, soulful bop, “Hard To Be.” (YouTube)

“Barley” - Water From Your Eyes

The riotous, jolting “Barley,” from NYC band Water From Your Eyes, is one part meditative count-up to four and one part commentary... on the soul-crushing monotony of life under capitalism? (YouTube)
