10. Kill J - Gravity

Danish pop act Kill J hasn't released anything this year, but she's finally broken the drought with an intoxicating new song Gravity. Gravity is a careful, intricate pop song that sees her traverse minimal, clap-led beat. She's come in leaps and bounds since her last release and is becoming a really exciting artist.

9. Tentendo - One Stop Shop

Tentendo is a member of Melbourne group Billy Davis but he's stepped out on his own for this slinky jam One Stop Shop. Sounding both funky and experimental, he's managed to create an individual aesthetic in just one song. One Stop Shop slips through the ears so easily.

8. DAWN - Gravity

DAWN keeps delivering quantity and quality with another new song Gravity. The track maintains that hip-hop/electronica sound that was all over Redemption and features a whimsical, hypnotising vocal.

7. Set Mo - I Belong Here (Feat. Woodes)

Set Mo are back with a new euphoric cut I Belong Here featuring the vocal talents of Woodes. I Belong Here follows on from their club-centric After Dark Vol 1 EP and sees them take more of a melodic turn thanks to Woodes' expert vocal. It's got that big, trademark Set Mo chorus with '90s house-flavoured instruments, perfect for you to forget that we're in the middle of winter.

6. Cut Copy - Airborne

Cut Copy have released their first official single in three years and it's a breezy return. Airborne sees them return to their more relaxed Bright Like Neon Love vibes, completely ditching the house aesthetic of their last record Free Your Mind. There's a radio edit of this song floating around today but make sure you hit play on the five minute version for the euphoric finale.

5. AlunaGeorge - Turn Up The Love

AlunaGeorge are back with their first official single since last year's I Remember LP. The British duo have delivered Turn Up The Love, a song that's unashamedly aimed at the half of the world celebrating summer right now. That's not us but that doesn't mean that we can't get swept up in the euphoric vibes of this perky stunner.

4. Motez - The Future (Feat. Antony & Cleopatra)

Motez has dropped a new song The Future ahead of his biggest national tour to date. The Adelaide producer has toned things down for this one, taking a more heartfelt, soulful approach with added help from Antony & Cleopatra. The pair deliver a warm, caressing vocal that slips effortlessly into Motez's twinkling sonic atmosphere.

3. Mura Masa - Nuggets (Feat. Bonzai)

Can't confirm whether or not this song is about McDonald nuggets but if it is, hats off to you both Mura Masa and Bonzai. Nuggets is the latest drop to come from Mura Masa's debut album which is out next week. It's the second time the pair have come together after they collaborated on the beautiful What If I Go? This one is far more energetic than their previous drop but it's a stack of fun and it's nice to hear both of them loosen up.

2. HAIM - Nothing's Wrong

HAIM released their second album Something To Tell You today and Nothing's Wrong is likely to be one of the first ones that grabs your attention. It's a groovy, heartbreak anthem that's giving us Shania Twain vibes, in the best way. The vocals on this are so on-point, it's impossible not to be swooning by the second listen.

1. Kesha - Praying

Kesha has finally returned with an empowering ballad called Praying. The song poignantly sums up her struggles in the past few years, stemming from allegedly being assaulted by her then label head Dr. Luke. It's great to hear here so on-form, embracing a rawer vocal that we never really new Kesha had inside of her.
