The 6 Best Songs Of The Week

Are you desperately looking for brand-new songs to update your Spotify playlist? Don’t worry because we’re (once again) here for you. Every week, we pick the best songs of the week that surprised, moved, or electrified us. With a great range of big stars to upcoming singers, there’s room for everybody and everything. So, turn up the volume because we discovered some true gems this week.

1. Chibi Ichigo and Jan Paternoster — Gracht

The Belgian whirlwind Chibi Ichigo has reinvented herself many times but has really found her sound. Her new single “Gracht” sees her collaborate with the Black Box Revelation guitarist Jan Paternoster and feels like a refreshing cross-over between hip hop, new wave, and techno. The accompanying music video is a spooky yet hilarious visual where she—once again—proves she has earned a spot on big festivals like DOUR and Pukkelpop.

2. Hamond — Badget

Hamond has excited us with his new wave R&B many times over, and his new music is ticking off all the boxes again. “Badget” is a short trip of just a little under two minutes and tells the story of a fading love that has left a mark on both sides. With his amazing production skills, Hamond manages to make a very minimal production sound incredibly mind-blowing, helping us transcend to a different dimension.

3. Chxrry22 — The Falls

“The Falls” is Chxrry22’s debut single and immediately shows that there’s a huge potential in her silky vocals. The Toronto singer combines a smooth R&B production with an interesting pop approach, which gives us flashbacks to the incredibly strong R&B era of the early 2000s but also sounds relevant enough to impress in 2022. We’re very curious what Chxrry22 has in store for us next because this is a very promising start.

4. Maggie Rogers — That’s Where I Am

Maggie Rogers was one of the nominees for a Grammy in 2020 as ‘Best New Artist’ and became a sensation within the indie-pop scene with her great debut album Heard It in a Past Life. After releasing no music for almost three years, Rogers is finally back with new music and released her cute pop song “That’s Where I Am” this week. The song has a very uplifting spirit to it and is a strong start to Maggie’s new era.

5. Oliver Sim — Fruit

After Jamie XX and Romy, Oliver Sim is the final The XX member to launch a solo career. “Fruit” wants to celebrate queer identity and self-acceptance, which really comes forward in the music video. Together with the French Yann Gonzalez, Sim translated the story of his song into a mesmerizing visual story where we see him transform from masculinity into femininity. “Fruit” is a bittersweet song with a dark undertone that never takes the upper hand and shines a light on a very important topic.

6. Empress Of — Save Me

Pop singer Empress Of has been through different phases with her music and impressed us with her latest album, I’m Your Empress Of. In her new single, “Save Me”, she gives us a new perspective on her music, creating an irresistible pop banger that could appeal to mainstream pop girls and an alternative crowd. The versatility of Empress Of has always stunned us, and we just adore how she keeps surprising us.
