Music Monday: 5 Songs You Need to Hear Today

These spring tracks bloom just for you…

NewNowNext spotlights new music by upcoming and established artists we think you should know about. Tell us what you think in the comment section.

  1. Caveboy – “Landslide”

    This raw and untamed 80s new wave track is a landslide in every way. Caveboy is a young indie pop trio based out of Montreal that’s putting the hot in hot yoga with this video. The song is passionate, dance-worthy, unpretentious, and pure fun. It’s a modern take on a throwback sound with catchy harmonies that are spot on.

  2. Tierra Whack – “Unemployed”

    Whack’s Whack History Month, where the singer drops a new track every week for the past five weeks, continues with an addictive and clever new track that brings her back to her hip-hop roots. Known for giving her fans a true spectrum of experimental sounds and performances, it’s exciting to have an artist who can pull out surprises while keeping such quality and intrigue. Like your favorite Drag Race runway looks, I want to see more from her.

  3. CupcakKe – “Bird Box”

    I’ve loved CupcakKe since a few years back when she offered a young gay fan a hotel room via Twitter who was just kicked out of his home. She is a fierce and underrated lyricist who, fair warning, is as raw as raw comes. “Bird Box” is her latest flex full of punch lines and metaphors that will leave your wig absolutely dissolved.

  4. Soak – “Déjà Vu”

    When she’s not busy fighting for LGBTQ rights in Northern Ireland, she’s busy making incredible music about her experiences. “Déjà Vu” is mesmerizing indie bedroom-pop at its best, and it’s rare to hear a song that sounds both brooding and bright. This only underscores the buzz around her new album Grim Town that drops next month.

  5. Karen O. & Danger Mouse – “Turn The Light”

    Combining Danger Mouse’s spacey alt rock with Karen O’s iconic range that has always been able to either coddle your soul or wake you from a coma, this pair is a match made in heaven. From the collaborative Lux Prima album, this track is a must-add for your spring romance fantasy.
