You’re here now so you may as well have a look at what we liked this week.
10. NSTASIA – Parachute
Last week, we introduced NSTASIA with the effortless Hell Of A Time and now she’s backed it up with Parachute. Parachute was produced by Skrillex and it shows the softer side of the producer’s beats, allowing NSTASIA’s voice to float effortlessly above the instrumental.
9. YUNGBLUD – Tin Pan Boy
Our favourite British big mouth YUNGBLUD is back today with another raucous anthem Tin Pan Boy. It may be his most ferocious cut yet, sounding again like a cross between Arctic Monkeys and your new favourite popstar.
8. Super Cruel – Sicklaced (Feat. CXLOE)
Super Cruel are making some of the most slippery, effortless electronic tunes out there right now and they’ve smashed it out of the park again with this one featuring Sydney vocalist CXLOE. Perfectly timed for the summer, we reckon you’re going to sink one or two to this tune this season.
7. Running Touch – Equaliser
Running Touch has been slowly building a profile as one of this country’s best electronic artists and Equaliser may be his best yet. It’s bound by an instantly addictive sample that gets the blood pumping
6. Kamaiyah – Slide (Bet)
It’s been a tough year for Kamaiyah but she’s back on top of her game, sliding through ’80s-tinged beats with autobiographical-yet-groovy raps. This gem is taken off her most recent mixtape Before I Wake.
5. Jesse Porsches – Say It To Me (Feat. Brasska)
Jesse Porsches is back serving up those crisply-produced beats and supremely melodic vocals. This is Porsches at his best, melding electronica with pop and managing to put his own trademark sounds on it too. It caps off a great week for him too, signing to BMG in global publishing deal.
4. KING IV – Bump
KING IV is making the most forward-thinking music of any newbie right now. The Melbourne artist consistently takes risks and on Bump she gives us an experimental pop moment that you’ll find hard to compare to anything. That’s a great thing.
3. Kimbra – Top Of The World
Kimbra is back with the second single off her forthcoming album Primal Heart and it’s an experimental cut. The Kiwi singer has delivered something daring this time around, matching a primal beat with aggressive, self-assured vocals that border on rapping at times. It’s minimal but it still feels dense and important which is a testament to Kimbra’s undeniable presence.
2. Taylor Swift – Delicate
Taylor Swift‘s Reputation is already dividing people but it’s likely that this is going to be one of the easier ones to devour. It’s one of Swift’s most personal, subtle moments and it’s so nice to hear her contained and honest with a hint of experimentation.
1. Sigrid – Strangers
Sigrid‘s Don’t Kill My Vibe was one of the best of the year and now she may have notched another one with Strangers. Strangers may lead you to believe it’s delicate initially but the beat kicks on and she hits it into the stratosphere. It’s a monstrous pop song that we didn’t quite expect Sigrid to deliver so soon.
