Every week, we compile a list of the best new rock songs out. Here are four that you shouldn’t miss.

“Essentially” by Japanese Breakfast

Japanese Breakfast have dropped a new song, “Essentially,” on global hospitality brand W Hotels’ boutique label W Records. The woozy track is the result of Michelle Zauner and bandmate Craig Hendrix’s recording sessions in Bali, Indonesia.

“Talking Heads” by Black Midi

“Talking Heads” is the latest single from Black Midi on their new label, Rough Trade Records, which they signed with at the end of January. The buoyant, chameleonic track is a great introduction to the band’s intense, off-kilter sound.

“Read My Mind” by Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever

Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever have given “Read My Mind,” the B-side of their latest single “In the Capital,” the visual treatment. The clip captures a late afternoon at the rodeo, with footage of riders facing off against bulls in grainy black and white.

“Hairpin Turns” by The National

The National have released “Hairpin Turns,” the latest single off their forthcoming album, I Am Easy to Find. It dropped alongside a black-and-white video that features dancer Sharon Eyal.
