Best new songs this week: Ob picks

Every Friday, Overblown selects the best of the week’s new songs. Ob Picks rounds up the single releases and album releases which may have passed you by: we gotchu.

Fontaines D.C. // Starburster
Fontaines D.C. have announced Romance, their new album made in collaboration with the UK’s busiest producer, James Ford. ‘Starburster’ is a track (and video) of contradictions, as frontman Grian Chatten reaches for some clarity amongst the chaos.

A.G. Cook // Soulbreaker
‘Soulbreaker’, from the mastermind behind PC Music is packed with a perfect harmony of hope and doom. Forthcoming album, Britpop, is a 24-song funfair populated with A.G. Cook’s eclectic and expansive music tastes.

Eyedress // Skater Dater ft. Bb Trickz & Elvia
One of 34 tracks on Eyedress’s new album, Vampire in Beverly Hills, Spanish rapper Bb Trickz and partner/collaborator Elvia jump onto the dreamy ‘Skater Dater’. This is the sound of Eyedress at his minimalist and ethereal best.

Kartell // No Escape ft. Barney Bones
You may be sat in your basement flat in the rain, but close your eyes and allow Kartell and Barney Bones to grant you three and a half minutes of sunset cruising on ‘No Escape’.

Joe Goddard // Moments Die (feat. Barrie)
New album Harmonics, out 12th July, will feature collaborations with Jungle’s Tom McFarland, Alabaster DePlume and Ibibio Sound Machine alongside appearances from Goddard’s Hot Chip bandmates. This is gunna be good.

King Hannah // Davey says
‘Davey Says’ sees Liverpool duo King Hannah tessellating their lofty, moody soundscapes with the fuzz of garage rock to make for an instantly lovable cut. New album Big Swimmer arrives 31st May via City Slang.

Moon Tide Gallery // Venus Fly Trap
Mason Gainer twins reverb-heavy dreampop with the relentless urgency of garage percussion on the unignorable ‘Venus Fly trap’; an unlikely marriage made in heaven.
