1. Anne-Marie, Neiked, Latto – I Just Called
The musical duo Neiked collaborate with popstar Anne-Marie and rising rapper Latto for a brilliantly fresh pop track. Of course it follows the trend of the 20s disco revival pop music for instant TikTok hit, but the artists do it splendidly. Latto’s verse, although well delivered, seems like an unneeded feature as Anne-Marie’s sweet voice is enough to power this sugary pop song.
2. M.I.A. – The One
The British-Tamil rapper is back after releasing a No. 1 hit in 2020 with Travis Scott‘s “FRANCHISE”. The rapper has now announced the release of her upcoming album MATA, her signing with Island Records and her rebirth as a “born-again Christian”. “The One” is a by-the-numbers rap song with echoes of AIM, M.I.A.’s last LP. Nevertheless, we are happy for the innovative artist’s return.
3. Hayley Kiyoko – for the girls
Popstar Hayley Kiyoko releases a fun pop song for the summer with a sunny vibe, memorisable, repetitive lyrics and a lightly empowering message.
4. Rico Nasty – Intrusive
Rapper Rico Nasty proves to be perfect for the punk sound as she continues to experiment with different sounds and genres. “Intrusive” is an endlessly inventive track that has punk rock sound and funny, playful sound effects which add humour to the overall piece.
5. Pritt – C U Win
British singer Pritt mixes South Indian music with Western R&B to make a love letter to all the important people in her life. The result is a gorgeously melodic tune.
6. Sky Ferreira – Don’t Forget
American pop singer and actor Sky Ferreira is a household name in indie/synth pop circles. The artist returns with a nice throwback electro synth-pop dance track. Ferreira’s voice is as resplendent as ever and the production often feels cinematic, if a little dated.
7. ELIZA – Neck of the Moon
The R&B songstress has dropped a dark, brooding R&B track with some dance elements. It doesn’t have a grip on you as strongly as her previous single “Straight Talker” but still makes for a wonderful mood setter or ambient background music.
8. Planet 1999 – Dune
The hyperpop supergroup have dropped their latest track, “Dune”, which glows with its brilliantly strange and haunting 80s inspired production. The only impediment may be the heavily autotuned high-pitched vocals which have become an overtly familiar and expected sound for PC Music.
9. Kamille – learning
British singer Kamille drops a simultaneous pack of highly listenable pop music and hardhittingly emotional life lessons with “Learning”.
