Yeah, Bieber dropped a new single. (Yeah, it is awesome.) But that’s not the only new music we’re jamming to. Here’s our round-up of favorites from this week.
Nile, “Evil To Cast Out Evil”
There’s been a lot of darkness this week, and what better way to exorcise my demons than with a death metal band from South Carolina who worships at the monster-conjuring altar of H.P. Lovecraft? Have a seizure and sever your spine to “Evil To Cast Out Evil.” —KA
Keys N Krates, “I Know U”
Toronto’s biggest electronic export drops earworms pretty consistently but there’s something in the heaviness here that feels special. It lifts you up while dragging you down. —MV
CHINAH, “We Go Back”
The Denmark trio’s velvety smooth track gives us floaty Solange vibes — don’t be surprised if you find yourself closing your eyes and getting into some serious desk chair groovin’. —IB
Potty Mouth, “Cherry Picking”
Welcome to Valhalla. Potty Mouth’s latest is a shred-fest with hair-flipping lyrics that feels like 10 Things I Hate About You for the millennial. —MV
Skylar Spence, “Can’t You See” (Ryan Hemsworth Remix)
Not having a drop is definitely the new having a drop. Ryan Hemsworth gives Spence’s disco-tinged ditty a welcome slowdown. —MV
Diplo and Sleepy Tom, “Be Right There”
Want to clap your hands and shimmy into the weekend? Cool! Us too! Check out Diplo and Sleepy Tom’s collab—which, you will have heard if you follow Diplo on Snapchat. He’s been playing it all over the world this week and it’s not hard to see why. —MV
