A good week for the world ‘Home’.
11. YK Osiris – Fake No Mo
YK Osiris is taking it back to early ’00s Mario and Omarion with this album highlight Fake No Mo. It captures the sweetest elements of his voice over a gradually expanding trap beat.
10. Kim Petras, Kash Doll & Stefflon Don – How It’s Done (Feat. Alma)
Don’t Call Me Angel was a mess but the next taste from the Charlie’s Angels soundtrack improves on it. It’s a celebratory girl power anthem that’s driven by a hearty Petras hook.
9. ROLE MODEL – hello!
ROLE MODEL impressed us with his last release Minimal and now he’s doubled down with this soulful jaunt. Over Bennie & The Jets-borrowed keys, he gives a present, finessed performance.
8. Hayley Kiyoko – Demons
Hayley Kiyoko picked October to drop her spookiest track yet. Demons unfolds with a creeping beat and a haunting, manipulated hook that Kiyoko bookends with some delectably melodic verses.
7. MorMor – Won’t Let You
Won’t Let You will hook you with the first sound of falsetto. MorMor sounds better than he ever has on this intimate new cut that falls somewhere between experimental Bon Iver and Frank Ocean.
6. Caribou – Home
Caribou is back with his first single since 2015 Home and it’s likely to make you feel all the warm and fuzzies. Home slows it down a bit from Our Love, trading pulsating bass for vintage soul samples.
5. Camila Cabello – Easy
Camila is dropping them fast right now, showing plenty of different sides. This is the first love song of the bunch and it’s a slick ballad that’s not dissimilar to Never Be The Same.
4. City Girls – JT First Day Out
JT is out of prison and it feels like City Girls can finally soar. She shows how good a rapper she is on JT First Day Out giving us her situation raw and unfiltered.
3. E^ST – Talk Deep
E^ST is back with her first single TALK DEEP and it’s also the first single off her forthcoming debut album. TALK DEEP takes us right into the early hours of the morning, offering up an effortless dance-pop track that hits right where it needs to.
2. FKA twigs – Home With You
Home With You goes from a muted club track to a sweeping ballad in the space of seconds and it’s thrilling. It’s one of twigs’ most moving cuts yet turning feelings of loneliness and displacement into a liberating sprint.
1. Harry Styles – Lights Up
This is what we’ve always wanted from Harry. Lights Up finally veers into a camp pop world albeit while retaining some of his British rock influence. It’s a sweaty, psychedelic trip that is difficult to predict. It’s clearly a result of psychedelics but if that’s what it takes, keeping going Harold.
