With so much new music coming out each and every day, it can be hard to listen to everything, but we'll be damned if we don't try. Here are our favourite tunes from the week that was from the likes of B.D.B, BARKAA, Drahla, Gregor, Maxo Kream, Milan Ring, RinRin, RINSE, Tokyo Police Club and Wisp.

B.D.B - CHROMA 002 L.A.V.A

Bicep linked with longtime friend and collaborator Benjamin Damage for the second release on their new CHROMA imprint, going proggy tech house and electro with sultry vocals, taking things slightly harder and faster than 001. Out now via CHROMA.

BARKAA - We Up

Rapper and ​​Malyangapa, Barkindji woman BARKAA comes in hot with a blistering new anthem pairing booming drums and classical string samples, with trap and Bmore club influences. Out now via Bad Apples Music.

Drahla - Grief In Phantasia

Leeds-based art-rock experimentalists edge closer to their highly anticipated sophomore album with a stark and exploratory new single that combines post punk with noisy art rock and no wave to great effect.

Gregor - The Sparkle

Naarm/Melbourne pop eccentric Gregor pairs stripped back analogue drum machines with melancholic piano and swirling synths before giving way to dreamy vocal harmonies on stripped back new single. Gregor’s new album Satanic Lullabies is out May 10 via Chapter Music.

Maxo Kream - No Then You A Hoe

H Town OG continues his recent string of one off singles with a new song that’s title sums up “don’t judge a song by its name”. Rather than what the titular line may imply, the lyrical content sees Maxo in a pensive and reflective mood, detailing the struggles of being surrounded by negative influences even when you’re on top with some deeply personal bars.

Milan Ring - Photograph

After dropping previous singles Mangos and Quicksand, Eora/Sydney R&B musician, producer and engineer Milan Ring announced her second studio album with a short and sweet new cut of jazzy neo-soul and r&b. Milan Ring’s new album Mangos is out May 10 via Astral People Recordings.

RinRin - Miss Miserable

Award winning West Aussie alt-metal artist goes emotional pop punk on new single that sees pummelling drums alongside blistering lead guitars (with a huge solo thrown in for good measure) with RinRin’s sweet, soaring vocals looking back on hard times in her youth while offering hope to anyone going through something similar.

RINSE - Stranger feat. Caroline Loveglow

When he’s not a producer, co-writer and live performer with Hatchie, Naarm/Melbourne artist Joe Aguis can be found crafting enchanting dream pop and shoegaze flavours as RINSE, as heard on playfully upbeat new single Stranger. Bringing 1994 kicking and screaming into 2024 with slowmo breakbeats, reverb drenched guitars and dreamy synths, Stranger’s rounded out with choral vocals from Los Angeles producer Caroline Loveglow. Out now via COHORT.

Tokyo Police Club - Just A Scratch / Catch Me If You Can

After starting the year by announcing their breakup (just shy of 20 years as a band!), beloved Ontario indie rockers TPC have unveiled their farewell single… or singles, with the complementary pairing of Just A Scratch and Catch Me If You Can. While coming in at similar tempos, JAC is an anthemic and emotional cut, while CMIYC is more of a party starting affair as Tokyo Police Club go out with a bang.

Wisp - Enough For You

Grungy, alt-rock shoegaze newcomer Wisp continues to impress with a dreamy yet crushing new single ahead of highly anticipated debut EP. Wisp’s debut EP Pandora is out April 5 via Interscope.

Enjoy all these tunes as well as a stack of other new music we've been feeling in our Spotify playlist.
