If you feel like you’re drowning in a sea of songs, desperate to know which tracks and videos deserve your attention, consider this your life preserver: Below, discover the best songs #NewMusicFriday has to offer.
“Jungle,” Loreen and Elliphant
Swedish pop queens Loreen and Elliphant collide on "Jungle," a humid, aptly-titled tropical banger with flourishes of breezy dancehall. The pop stars' collective hazy, intoxicating vocal delivery makes for perfect hammock-under-the-palm-trees listening.
“JUNK,” Vivienne Chi
London-based Spanish singer-songwriter Vivienne Chi delivers bittersweet euphoria on "JUNK," an ode to finding balance between the madness. Artful, melodic, poignant and instantly memorable, this sweeping alt-pop would fit right alongside Sia or Kimbra.
“Without Love,” Alice Glass
Former Crystal Castles front woman Alice Glass returns with another glitching glimpse at her wicked solo venture. Dropping "Without You," a toxic dose of warped, gloomy electro-pop as indefinable as Alice herself, the artist goes down the rabbit hole indeed in the single's dark, haunting video.
"Priority," Emily Vaughn
Electro-pop princess Emily Vaughn comes through yet again with another certified bop, this time called "Priority." A bona fide feminist self love anthem, the hazily melodic single finds the singer celebrating independence and "making up the rules" as she goes.
"We Should Kiss," Zombie-Chang
Tokyo-based anti-pop star and rapper Zombie-Chang is delightful as usual on "We Should Kiss," a slice of weirdly sinister dark disco. Accompanied by an equally weird and glossy video, this is tongue-in-cheek Italo-influenced electro at its most undeniable.
