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.
Mallrat’s sweet summery serenade gets a colossal lift from Azealia Banks, whose iconic and irreverent verse ends on an incredible lyric: “My p*ssy tighter than Nicole Kidman’s face.” (YouTube)
Every summer there’s one dance song that reigns over the rest and, this year, we’re putting our bets on Swedish House Mafia’s hopeful and soaring anthem featuring U.K. singer Connie Constance. (YouTube)
With her voice wrapped in vocoder, Phoebe Bridgers delivers another lyrical doozy with “Sidelines.” “And I used to think you could hear the ocean in a seashell/ What a childish thing,” she sings. (YouTube)
