Soundcheck: The 10 Best Music Releases The Week Of March 28, 2022


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 11 of our favorite emerging and established artists.

“maybe (feat. Bring Me The Horizon)” - Machine Gun Kelly

Machine Gun Kelly & pop-punk OGs Bring Me The Horizon tend to their eruptive heartbreak on this pounding standout that also sounds a bit like “Misery Business.” (YouTube)

SM Entertainment
“Glitch Mode” - NCT Dream

NCT Dream’s colossal single “Glitch Mode” glitches through genres — rap to languid pop and to arena rock — and it works impressively well. (YouTube)

“Big Energy (feat. DJ Khaled)” [Remix] - Latto, Mariah Carey

Latto’s mainstream push with her new album 777 now ends on the highest note: a sugary, ‘90s euphoria remix with a feature from Mariah Carey herself. (YouTube)

“Talk” - Beabadoobee

Beabadoobee’s delightfully scruffy new single “Talk” is all about messy relationships and going out on Tuesdays. (YouTube)

“Somebody Like You” - Bree Runway

With a fluid, avant-garde sound, “Somebody Like You” shows off a powerful and auteur-leaning side to the genre-breaking U.K. pop star Bree Runway. (YouTube)

“No Hotel” - Lykke Li

Even as she’s dabbling in the desolate theme of unrequited love, Lykke Li’s first song in years is still gothically beautiful. (YouTube)

“Broken Shadow” - Karen Elson

There’s such a soul-lifting effect to Karen Elson’s delicate and gorgeous new folk song “Broken Shadow,” a track about moving forward in uncertainty, accompanied only by your shadow. (YouTube)

“Acid In My Blood” - Channel Tres

Channel Tres’ “Acid In My Blood” brilliantly proves his claim that house music is Black music — or as he states at the beginning of the track, Black precision. (YouTube)

“Levitation” - Let’s Eat Grandma

Edgy synth-pop duo Let’s Eat Grandma’s powerful new anthem “Levitation” only gets higher and higher and bigger and bigger as the song goes on. (YouTube)

“Caliber” - Coco Jones

We’re making the early prediction that Coco Jones’ oil-slick sleek R&B bop “Caliber” will be a close contender for 2022’s song of the summer. (YouTube)
