Every weekend, we bring you#SOUNDCHECK—your destination for the best of the best new music that's just hit the web, because you should always be prepared when someone passes you that AUX cord. This week's roundup features some of our favorite emerging and established artists, including Maren Morris, MARINA, The Coathangers, and so many more. Turn up, tune in, and tune out.
"Common" - Maren Morris feat. Brandi Carlile
Please call for help, my two favorite people have collaborated, and nothing will ever top this.
"Handmade Heaven" - MARINA
With her first single in four years, Marina Diamandis is back and giving me major flashbacks to my pastel Tumblr blog days.
"F the NRA" - The Coathangers
The title literally says it all.
GIRLS-Yung Baby Tate
For every damn mood.
"Capacity" - Charly Bliss
If you need another reason to love this release, just know that Michelle Zauner of Japanese Breakfast directed the video.
"Talk" - Khalid, Disclosure
Completely here for the new wave of men finally communicating in relationships, TBH.
"CHOOSE GO!" - CHAI
CHAI's incredible new music video is like if High School Musical met Clueless.
"Clovers" - Barrie
We got lucky with this new indie psychedelic bop from Barrie.
"Easy" - closegood
Just the sentiment we all need ahead of V-Day.
thank u, next - Ariana Grande
Ari just isn't letting up with all of the girl power-fueled tracks.
Quiet Signs - Jessica Pratt
Like a fairy singing you a lullaby, and I'm obsessed.
"BLACKJACK" - Aminé feat. YBN Cordae
Aminé's instantly recognizable sound is at its best in this "BLACKJACK" remix.
"ZORA" - Jamila Woods
An apt ode to author Zora Neale Hurston.
"Fix Me" - Cuco, Dillon Francis
A real tearjerker from Cuco.
"Shine" - Raiche
The exact kind of empowerment we need to get us through the week.
