|BEST NEW SONGS - BONZAI - I DID|
My initial reaction to I Did, the new single from Dublin-born singer Bonzai, is that it annoyed me. Later that day I found myself humming the lyrics. Before I knew it I was full-blown obsessed with the song, having played it a dozen plus timtes, and thoroughly embarrassed by my premature judgement of it. I Did is the lead single off Lunacy, Bonzai’s forthcoming third EP.

|BEST NEW SONGS: DENM - I LIKE IT|
We haven’t been subtle about our love for Santa Barbara’s favorite son DEMN. I Like It, similar to all of DEMN’s music, isn’t about lyrical or emotional depth, but it’s about the feels. And this song, like the rest of DENM's entirely-too-brief catalog, is packed full of feels.
|BEST NEW SONGS: MOSES SUMNEY - WORTH IT|
If there’s one thing we all could use some more of, it’s soul. California crooner Moses Sumney's new tune, Worth It, is more or less an a capella ballad save for some sparse hand claps and finger snaps. This minimalist environment, complete with the use of autotune, is sure to draw comparisons to Imogen Heap’s classic Hide and Seek.
|BEST NEW SONGS: BRUNO MAJOR - WOULDN'T MEAN A THING|
If there’s one thing I can root for, it’s someone stepping from out of the shadow of their brother(s). So I’m all in on Bruno Major, and thankfully his debut, Wouldn't Mean A Thing, is easy to cheer on.
