“ETA” - NewJeans

I wake to this song. I sleep to this song. I dream to this song. Those who get it, will get it!

“Talk To Me Nice” - Tinashe

Tinashe the independent artist continues to be her most interesting iteration.

“Love Like This” - Zayn

ZAYN actually sounds quite good over a drum and bass beat. I hope there’s more where this came from on his upcoming album.

“The Weekend” - Stormzy & Raye

Raye and Stormzy try to schedule a flirty hang on this slick, ‘00s R&B-laced bop.

“Vampire Empire” - Big Thief

A very “Big Thief” Big Thief song, which should be great news to everybody.

“skin in the game” - Slowdive

A clarifying shoegaze reset from the masters themselves, Slowdive.

“Sedative” - Viji

“London’s not as cool without you,” sings Viji on the extremely grungy yet deeply romantic “Sedative.”

“Studio Rat” - Celia

This pretty guitar song from Celia will be relatable to anyone who’s ever been asked to stop being so sad.

“11:11” - LUCI

LUCI’s vibrant sing-songy delivery give her loose, cool songs an edge.

“I Saw U” - Swank Mami

With a name like Swank Mami, you know the Oslo-based musician’s dance-oriented R&B is far from boring and bland.
