Every weekend, we bring you#SOUNDCHECK—your destination for the best of 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 round features 12 of our favorite emerging and established artists including Hayleau, Christine and the Queens, Pip Millett, and so many more. Turn up, tune in, and tune out.

"That's Life" - Hayleau

We've got a pretty big crush on her, if you couldn't already tell.

"Catch Me If You Can" - Kelsy Karter

You're gonna have to jump up and dance to this one.

"Closer" - Astrid S

This Nor-pop artist really knows how to set the mood.

Spotify Singles - Christine and the Queens

We can always use a little more Christine and the Queens in our lives.

"Everything Hurts" - Emmy Wildwood

Like the final sequence in an '80s movie.

"Magic Hairdo" - Sônge

Am I hearing a hint of disco?

"Drunk & Alone / On Your Mind" - Pip Millett

Some mellow vibes for a chill weekend.

"Crush" (prod. Cuco) - Hunnah

We've got a big crush on this song right now.

"Cycles" - Tove Lo

This song is an easy, fun bop, but maybe don't watch the video for too long if you get motion sickness.

"Honestly" - TS Graye

While we don't recommend giving toxic men (the subject of the track) the time of day, we do recommend this song.

"Look At You Now" - Sleeper

A beautiful blend of synth vibes with rock undertones. We've had it on repeat since its release.

"All Ready To Go" (video) - Taking Back Sunday

This is an actual rock bop, and we all can use some soft head-banging.
