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.
070 Shake and Christine and the Queens go head-to-head on this woozy and haunting track that pays its respects to the female form. (YouTube)
After years out of the spotlight, Santigold returns sounding as refreshed and timeless as ever on the funky, punky new song, “High Priestess.” (YouTube)
Soccer Mommy’s “Bones” is like the older sister of breakout track, “Cool.” No longer concerned with not being good enough to catch the boy, “Bones” centers on feeling insecure after a failed relationship. (YouTube)
Fousheé continues to captivate with each new drop, this time embodying the “tranquil above water but anxious thrashing below” mental state on her new guitar song, “I’m Fine.” (YouTube)
Like the founder of his label, Saddest Factory signee Charlie Hickey has a knack for describing the anxieties and pains of growing up and into yourself with tender writerly specificity. (YouTube)
