Another Monday, another new releases weekly roundup! And this week truly has provided.
Soccer Mommy tease their upcoming album colour theory with single ‘Circle The Drain’, providing openly sad lyrics with themes of depression and heartache, but lifted by light and buoyant melodies to create an honest and beautiful contradiction. Described by her video director Ashley Connor as “An ode to every sacrificial act of love”, TORRES releases the polished and 90’s pop infused ‘Dressing America’. Next, LA based trio Moaning return with punchy guitar and moody drums, elevated with late Twin Peak style synths to form the addictive single ‘Ego’, and Peggy Sue’s ‘In Dreams’ delivers the perfect haze.
Exploring the idea of adopting male tropes to gain confidence while paying homage to the dance tracks of the early 2000s, Rina Sawayama exhibits seductive vocals on new single ‘Comme Des Garçons (Like The Boys)’, while Thundercat walk us through the week with the funk laden basslines we all deserve in ‘Black Qualls (feat. Steve Lacy & Steve Arrington)’. Finally, reminiscent of early Strokes with pushing drums that set the pace, and an energetic crashing backdrop, Pet Shimmers release new single ‘Post-Dick Circle Fuck’.
Check out all the tunes below and come back again next Monday for more new music!
