Because you should always be prepared when someone passes you that AUX cord. This week’s round features 10 of our favorite emerging and established artists including CHVRCHES, Wet, and so many more. Turn up, tune in, and tune out.
"Miracle" - CHVRCHES
Can CHVRCHES do area-sized pop? Bump this through your strongest speakers and you'll see they very much can. "Miracle" is going to slap so hard live with its soaring chorus and the desperation in Lauren Mayberry's "Ask me no questions/ I will tell you no lies" delivery.
"High Five" - Sigrid
Sigrid's back with another refreshing pop anthem that'll remind you that summer is on its way.
"Fetiche" - Arca
Here, watch Arca and Carlos Sáez crush flowers in Prada heels for 11-minutes as Arca's latest song, which blends hip-hop with industrial trappings, bumps in the background.
"Best Part" - Daniel Caesar & H.E.R.
Daniel Caesar and H.E.R.'s new visual feel like a warm blanket. Get wrapped up in it above.
"enemies?" - nobigdyl.
Straight outta Nashville comes nobigdyl. He's got that uplifting flow, preaching doing good over fronting like you're all tough and relishing in your haters.

Friends, we have another contender for Song Of The Summer with this one.
"Softens" - Wet
Wet's latest will guide you through those difficult times with ease.
"Youngblood" - 5 Seconds of Summer
Okay. 5 Seconds of Summer's latest taste of their forthcoming third album of the same name is... great. Like, really, really great.
