Fire up those playlists, it's New Music Friday! Here are all the tracks you need to hear this week, featuring METTE, Dylan, Bakar and more.
'FOR THE PEOPLE' by METTE
‘FOR THE PEOPLE’ is our pick from METTE’s debut EP, METTENARRATIVE. On the track, she speaks defiantly about society and her place within it, stirring emotions with dance-focused electronic beats.
'All Night' by Bakar
‘All Night’ is an upbeat musical remedy for a poisonous relationship. Bakar speaks definitively about his pursuit of toxicity over cybernetic jangle pop.
'Rebel Child' by Dylan
Rock-pop trailblazer Dylan is a ‘Rebel Child’ on her thunderous new single. The BBC Sound of 2023 nominee is set for an extensive UK, EU and North America tour next February.
'Air Raid' by Jeshi
UK rap rulebreaker Jeshi returns with the frenzied single ‘Air Raid’: a declaration of disassociation and detachment.
'Agora Hills' by Doja Cat
Doja Cat is surprisingly smitten on ‘Agora Hills’. For someone known for their more platonic wordplay, it’s endearing to hear her so giddy over ethereal 808s.
'TRIPLE THREAT' by Headie One, K-Trap, Clavish
On ‘TRIPLE THREAT’, K-Trap, Headie One and Clavish write the manifesto for a better UK drill, one that harks back to the genre’s origins to accelerate its future.
'Into Your Room' by Holly Humberstone
You can feel the anticipation brewing for Holly Humberstone’s debut album, Paint My Bedroom Black. On ‘Into Your Room’, the singer-songwriter taps ‘80s electronica, dissecting heartbreak and dependency over uplifting soundscapes.
'WY@' by Brent Faiyaz
As nights get colder, Brent Faiyaz season is well and truly upon us. On ‘WY@’, the Maryland artist’s vocals are like a warm blanket, inducing a meditative state of mind.
'Kamehameha' by Balming Tiger
Seoul-based collective Balming Tiger are back with the fourth single from their forthcoming album. ‘Kamehameha’, and its experimental soundscape, pays homage to a song sung during a Korean drinking game.
'Got Me Started' by Troye Sivan
Ever wondered what Troye Sivan sounds like on a garage beat? Well, thanks to ‘Got Me Started’, you’re about to find out.
