“Don’t Say Love” - Leigh-Anne

Little Mix’s Leigh-Anne has gone solo, and her first release, a very ‘00s, breakbeat pop banger, sets her up for a bright future.

“405” - Gracie Abrams

Yet another heartbreaking smash from Gracie Abrams with lyrics like: “It’s almost like you like to let me down.”

“On My Mama” - Victoria Monét

Our skin is clear and our depression is gone.

“(It Goes Like) Nanana” - Peggy Gou

Peggy Gou’s uplifting new single pairs perfectly with a sunset and drink in your hand.

“No Cold” - KayCyy

Minnesotan rapper KayCyy’s sound blurs synthwave and rap thanks to his latest collab with Gesaffelstein.

“komfortzone” - Flesh Eater (feat. Fiona Apple)

You can hear Fiona Apple on shrieking vocals, piano, vibraphone, and cabasa on this disorienting, 7-minute lucid dream by Flesh Eater.

“Whole Family” - Saucy Santana ft. Flo Milli

It’s Saucy Santana, Flo Milli, on an “Apache (Jump On It)” sample — you know it’s good.

“Better Together” - Eaves Wilder

The saccharine sweetness of Eaves Wilder’s voice sounds even better against raging, rolling guitars.

“Make Me Cry” - Astra King

There’s still a human approachability to PC Music Astra King’s shellac-shiny pop music.

“Patterns” - Absolutely

Everything about U.K. musician Absolutely’s new single pulls you in: curling, vining synths and a soft, looping melody.
