New Music Friday - July 29

This week’s New Music Friday features new album releases from Beyoncé, Hayley Kiyoko, Maggie Rogers, Amanda Shires, and King Princess. Happy listening!


Album: Renaissance


“The album’s pace is continually played with, much like a DJ spinning tracks in a club, and the final result is like one brilliant set on a night out. In a similar light, Beyoncé toys with structure and form throughout Renaissance, and makes the listener question why these structures were there in the first place.”

“panorama” by Hayley Kiyoko

Album: Panorama


“The album’s 12 tracks are punctuated with glossy pop music, lyrics detailing relationships that didn’t work out, and stories about how she sees herself moving forward in her burgeoning career.”
Riff Magazine

“Anywhere With You” Maggie Rogers

Album: Surrender


“From the lyrical outpouring of questions and realisations, to the emotions encapsulated by these instrumental vignettes and thoughtful production, you get the sense that Maggie is at home here in this state of experimentation and consideration.”
Clash Music

“Here He Comes” by Amanda Shires

Album: Take It Like A Man


“For all her strong feelings on Take It Like a Man, Shires remains a poet at heart. If her lyrics here are often forceful, they’re also always evocative and sometimes even elegant, whether she’s revisiting her fondness for bird imagery or seeking the thrill that accompanies a new relationship.”
Paste Magazine

“I Hate Myself, I Want To Party” by King Princess

Album: Hold On Baby


“Following up the rockstar swagger that saturated even the most intimate moments of King Princess’ 2019 debut Cheap Queen, Hold On Baby flips the table round and saturates even its bolshiest moments with a sensitive, tender energy.“
