It’s the first New Music Friday of February, and here’s what’s dropping to bring joy to your music-loving ears.
UK Alt Pop megastars Bastille have the big release of their latest album, finding the group experimenting with more electronic sounds. Indie singer-songwriter Mitski is going to capitalize on her viral success with her latest album, and punk group Divided Heaven have released their latest full length, with some songs produced by Frank Turner (who’s new album drops in a week!).
The big news in singles is the return of California’s favorite sons the Red Hot Chili Peppers, and the announcement of their new album coming out in April. Also making big returns are Dr. Dre (with Eminem) on a brand new single, and Machine Gun Kelly and Willow, who have a new pop-punkalicious single to get you pogoing. Critical darlin Arlo Parks has dropped a new melodic gem, and indie rockers Wallows have a new single from their upcoming new album. Pop punk duo girlfriends have dropped two new songs, and junior punks The Linda Lindas have a new single out along with the announcement of their new album on Epitaph.
Some great artists we have covered in the past, Aussie punks Skegss, synth rockers Glacier Veins, reggae star Koffee, guitarist Hamish Anderson, power pop punks Big Nothing, and songwriter Mo Kenney all have new singles out this week. And as always, we’re giving our first spins to new and up-and-coming acts like Findlay, Shadow Academy, Flo Gallop, Dimitra Korri, Tyler Meacham, Susan Cattaneo, Move Like Creatures, Cloe Wilder, Liam Davis, Many Voices Speak and Banditos.
