Sabrina Carpenter's "Feather" & 9 Other New Songs Out Right Now


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.

“feather” - Sabrina Carpenter

Soulful, plushy R&Pop is Sabrina Carpenter’s sweet spot, and you can really hear it on “feather,” the soul sister to “nonsense” and a grade A breakup bop. (YouTube)

“Smoke Sprite (feat. RM of BTS)” - So!YoON!

It’s about time more of the world hears about South Korea’s alt music scene, like this propulsive ethereal rock cut from artist So!YoON! featuring a grizzled verse from BTS’ RM. (YouTube)

“The Grants” - Lana Del Rey

Nothing will emotionally prepare you for Lana Del Rey’s staggering new song, an unbelievably moving ode to her family and the memories she’ll take when she leaves: “my sister’s first born child/ my grandmother’s last smile.” (YouTube)

“The Most Wanted Person In The United States” - 100 gecs

This is probably 100 gecs’ chillest song, but it still has enough personality to go head-to-head with the rest of the band’s ear-clanging catalog. (YouTube)

“Big World” - Ni’Jah, KIRBY

I interpreted this cosmopolitan dance song as SWARM’s Renaissance sound-alike, which means the vibes are immaculate. (YouTube)

“Latina” - Isabella Lovestory

Another piece of incredible high-octane performance art by reggaeton princess Isabella Lovestory. (YouTube)

“Killing Me” - Aluna, TSHA

Defeat any forces sucking your soul by blasting Aluna & TSHA’s revitalizing house jam “Killing Me” at max volume. (YouTube)

“Reckless & Sweet” - Amaarae

A tantalizing dark club cut from afropop’s most angelic voice, Amaarae. (YouTube)

“Fed Rock” - Island of Love

The intentionally loud, intentionally lo-fi rumbly rock of London’s Island Of Love will immediately zip you to the sweat-dripped venues of the ‘90s. (YouTube)

“dumiri” - Keltiey

“Dumiri” — or “do me right” — introduces a formidable new pop star in Houston dance diva Keltiey. (YouTube)
