Alrighty, it’s a bit of a muted New Music Friday today, but we’ve still picked out the absolute best for you. Starting with the inimitable Christine & The Queens, who floors us with the latest taste of her upcoming album. There’s also great stuff from big hitters like SG Lewis and Clairo, newbie Moli is irresistible (as is our old fave LKA), High Hoops get us off our feet shuffling, while Ariel is a proper pop star to watch, delivering one of the best debuts we’ve heard all year.
And as usual, we deviate from Spotify’s NMF picks with some tremendous upcoming acts. There’s brilliant work from Joseph J Jones, James Droll, iiola, KIN, and NUUXS; meanwhile you’d do well to make time for China Lane, DIMA, sister act Aya, and all the other goodness we have for you below.
