Sherwyn feat. PawPaw Rod, “The Season”

Mac Miller and Duckwrth Producer Sherwyn Slips Easily into the Spotlight on Seven-Song Project Manufacturer design, which features kaleidoscopic indie rock (“Fake Frenz”), offbeat soul (“Goddess Reign” feat. Amber Mark), and playful, nonchalant funk on tracks like “The Season” featuring fellow genre talent PawPaw Rod. –Joe Lynch

Mariah the Scientist, “Bout Mine”

Given that the art of Mariah the Scientist’s latest single shows the words “Bout Mine” written in blood, you might expect some seasonally appropriate Halloween fare here (Mariah the MAD Scientist, perhaps? ). But the bleeding in “Bout Mine” is a slow drip, as Mariah’s eager vocals yearn to “fix things” and “get back” over languid, lonely synths. – J. Lynch

Lauren Jauregui, “Always Love”

As she continues to locate her solo niche, Lauren Jauregui has found success in material that showcases her powerful yet nuanced voice and fiercely compassionate lyricism. “Always Love,” a post-breakup ballad, exists in this sweet spot — simple yet heartfelt, encouraging both flowing tears and cathartic chanting. –Jason Lipshutz

Rachel Chinouriri, “I’m Not Perfect (But I’m Trying)”

While London-based pop artist Rachel Chinouriri is responsible for one of the most delicious pop singles of 2022 in “All I Ever Asked”, the new single “I’m Not Perfect (But I’m Trying)” demonstrates just how much it can cover: catchy and more dynamic than its lighter-than-air predecessor, the track seeks understanding in constant motion and bolsters the singer-songwriter’s catalog. – J. Lipshutz

Mae Muller, “I Just Danced”

Is Mae Muller’s “I Just Came To Dance” the coolest music video ever shot on a golf course? As the British pop star cuts it through an august country club, the beat whips up and recalls some of the swaggering gumballs of the early 2000s. Muller, proving she can turn any setting into a party, wins another round. – J. Lipshutz

Isabel LaRosa, “I’m Yours”

On “I’m Yours,” Isabel LaRosa leans into wooziness, allowing her voice to swing between the more urgent verses and the abandoned vibe of the chorus. The result is moody yet seductive, as the 18-year-old cranks up a sound that can be segmented into viral clips as well as stretched and repeated on a lonely road. – J. Lipshutz

Chappell Roan, “Casual”

Yes, Chappell Roan’s new single ‘Casual’ is produced by Dan Nigro, who helmed Olivia Rodrigo’s hit debut album Acid last year…but even though Nigro helps “Casual” find a soaring indie-pop groove, the song is giddy because of Roan, a Missouri native who imbues every line with the exhaustion of a casual relationship. “Casual” sounds a lot like a singer-songwriter setting out on the path to stardom. – J. Lipshutz

The green light! Team achievement. The Star Feminine Band, “Look Away, Look Away”

A collaboration with the Beninese group The Star Feminine Band, “Look Away, Look Away” finds The Go! Team offering the kind of all-smiles training that made the collective a critical darling when Thunder, Lightning, Strike made some noise in 2004. Feel your Mondays case melt away with every tambourine beat and joyful harmony here. – J. Lipshutz

Bob Vylan ft. Laurie Vincent, “The Delicate Nature”

With only six months since the release of their third studio album the price of life, British grime punk duo Bob Vylan are back with a vengeance. The duo – consisting of members Bobby and Bobbie Vylan – are back with a new track “The Delicate Nature” featuring Laurie Vincent of Slaves. The aggressive track features menacing guitar work and lyrics that lead singer Bobby to reflect on the nebula of life and “the idea of ​​growing up and seeing the shared decisions you would make and how they might lead to results. that change your life”. The track’s steady guitar riffs slow to a deceptive output that gives listeners a boost as it speeds into mosh-ready madness. — Starr Bowenbank

Gus Dapperton, “Wet Cement”

While previous single ‘Antifreeze’ saw Gus Dapperton – with the help of UK band easylife – reflect on the impending winter chill, Dapperton’s new solo track ‘Wet Cement’ sees him moving towards something bigger. even colder. Dripping with a metaphor about the passage of time, the lyrics evoke the vibe of days gone by (“No, I don’t speak sweet, speak sweet / I let my heart bleed / Cold nights, cold feet”) that finally dried up. in hardened concrete as his signature, the impassioned drawl expresses both sadness and acceptance. —S. Bowenbank
