Best New Tracks

Summer may be coming to a close, but the first song we’ve heard from Crystal Fighters' forthcoming LP has an endless-summer-anthem feel to it. All Night is the ultimate tropical beach party track. The Basque superstars have channeled their country’s historical sounds through a power pop filter and the result is this wonderfully bombastic jam.
By internet timelines, we’re decades late on Indonesian wunderkind rapper Rich Chigga. But just because we’re behind the times for once doesn’t mean we can’t give the 16 year old and his viral hit, Dat $tick, its due.
Laid back electronic garage pop artist DENM illustrates how perfectly simple love is when you find someone who loves you back. GREEN is part of DENM’s debut EP Dreamhouse, out today. This single is one of those tracks that the more you listen to it, the more you fall in love with it.
New Jersey trio A R I Z O N A's latest offering, Cross My Mind, has the feel of an instant pop classic. This coming on the heels of I Was Wrong, a track with over 16 million streams, and you begin to realize that A R I Z O N A is a band on the verge of taking over 2016.
Fill Bo Riva hails from Berlin, Dublin, and Rome. His second single, Like Eye Did, is pure fire. Featuring vocals that sound like they made their way here from a portal to a different time or dimension, Like Eye Did is probably one of those songs you’ll either immediately love or hate. If you’re in the market for a distinctive, instantly recognizable voice, we’ve got a doozy of one for you.
Just like that, the competition for song title of the year is over. It helps that White’s latest, I Liked You Better When You Needed Me, is also a great cut too. White has been one of the biggest buzz bands of Europe’s festival circle this summer, and with I Liked You Better When You Needed Me you can understand why.
Earlier this month we brought you our main man DENM’s new cut, Under Pressure, and today we’ve got an acoustic version of the song that highlights its dexterity. The pulsing electronics and bass-driven beat are replaced by shimmering guitars. This change in scenery recasts the lyrics and shines a light on the raw nerves being struck.
Save your snark and ‘these folks are old’ jokes for another time, because This Bitter Land, a collaboration between Nas and Erykah Badu, is pure fire. From the star-studded soundtrack of The Land, for which Ms. Badu stars and Nas is the executive producer, This Bitter Land is a string-driven ballad.
