‘Now I’m In It’ – Haim

Los Angeles favorite trio of sisters are back with their new single, ‘Now I’m In It’ and have teamed up again with the Oscar-nominated Paul Thomas Anderson for the visuals. The sad banger is the band’s second single of the year and depicts the fear of losing yourself while backed with a club-approved synth and pulsating bassline. A great bop to dance to when you’re feeling sad but living with it.

‘I Feel Love’ – Sam Smith

Sam Smith has given a new lease of life to the Donna Summer’s 1977 classic record as they bring it to the 21st century.

“As a queer person ‘I Feel Love’ has followed me to every dance floor in every queer space from the minute I started clubbing,” Smith wrote on Twitter about the cover. “This song to me is an anthem of our community and it was an honour and most importantly so much fun to have a go at it. Highest song I’ve ever fucking sang. But a joy. I hope you all like it.”

The song is set to feature on Target’s holiday campaign, so hearing this will soon get you into the festive mood, even if it’s not Christmas themed.

If you’re going through a tough time in your love life, then this song will be heavily relatable for you.

‘Long Way To Go’ – Four Of Diamonds

Four of Diamonds have released the second single as part of their ‘Four Of Diamonds Singles Club’, where they will be regularly releasing new music. The single is an addictive bop that is totally destined for radio play. Speaking to us about the single, member Yasmin says: “Initially, when people listen to the track they probably assume it’s about being lied to in a relationship. The second interpretation is that the song is about you and your inner self. We’re all constantly fighting a battle in our minds so the words ‘you and I’ are you and your inner self.”

Whichever way you perceive it, this song is undeniably catchy and totally worthy of a spot on your playlist.

‘F*ckyounoah’ – Noah Cyrus featuring London On Da Track

Noah Cyrus has released her third single of 2019 with a pop/hip-hop blend which was inspired by the daily anxieties, self-doubt, and need for assurance (aka likes) induced under the glare of social media. The 19-year-old penned the track after a difficult period in her life. “Here ya go world.. ya might hate it. ya might not. but here’s a lil insight into my brain and headspace,” she wrote on Instagram as she dropped the video.

We hate to admit it, but this is definitely something that a lot of people – particularly around Noah’s age – are feeling about themselves, so at least we know we can relate while jamming to the brutally honest track.

‘Only You’ – 4th & Orange

Up-and-coming SoCal band 4th & Orange have had a hell of a first-year together. After releasing their debut single which surpassed 2 million views in less than 3 weeks, the band have just dropped their fourth single, ‘Only You’, a reggae-pop rock jam which samples Alyson Moyet’s 1982 hit ‘Only You’ (British readers may be familiar with another cover of the song playing at a Christmas time!). If you feel like you’re in the paradise of the honeymoon phase or crushing hard on someone, this song will sing the feelings of your heart as you picture your loved one.

Kid Bloom + New York, NY

Chatting to us about the new single, lead singer Garrett Douglas said: “Our manager Charles Chavez had a conversation with Julie Greenwald of Atlantic, and she mentioned something about a favorite song of hers that she’s always wanted a band to cover. Chuck played us ‘Only You’ by Yazoo in his office and we were all for it. We write most of our music, but this song has a ring to it and I can’t wait for our listeners to hear our rendition of it.”

‘That B-TCH’ – Bea Miller

Bea Miller is BACK and she didn’t come to play! The singer’s new single is an angsty explicit banger that talks about her personal experience with sexist double standards, such as a man asking her out on a date after telling her only men can cheat as well as being told to hide her shoulders in public. The song is a solid statement about sexism and double standards in the music industry and we know many of our faves can testify to that!

“When women assert themselves with strong confidence and intelligence they are often ridiculed by men who claim they’re being a b—h, but when men present themselves in the same way they’re praised and promoted,” she tweeted with the release of the song. PREACH IT, BEA!
