Every week, there are hundreds of thousands of new songs hitting the airwaves. It’s too much for just your two ears to handle. With all those options, you can’t be wasting your time on tracks worthy of a thumbs down button. Don’t worry, we’re going to save you the hassle. We listen to some of the most hyped and interesting songs each week, and tell you what ones are worth using your bandwidth on.

Here are our top 5 songs to stream this week.

Ellie Goulding – On My Mind

Ellie Goulding debuted in 2008 as a 22-year-old with a low-key style. Her very first single jumped immediately into the top songs in the United Kingdom. Before her first record was even released, she won a BBC poll showcasing new talent and scored a win at the Brit Awards. After all that happened, she finally released her debut record. When you start a career like that, it’s hard to imagine there’s room to continue going up.

And yet, with her third studio record Delirium on the way, it looks like she’s ready to push the ceiling even higher. On My Mind serves as the lead single for the record, and while it’s gotten plenty of attention — as people debate whether it’s about her ex-boyfriend Ed Sheeran — it deserves to be on repeat on its own merit. She delivers her verses in a sort of stunted rhythm, sounding almost like a rapper’s cadence. It’s a new style for Goulding, but it works wonders and makes the track an instant standout.

Battles – The Yabba

Battles, the New York-based experimental rock group, have their third studio album ready for later this year. It’s titled La Di Da Di, which is a funny name to give a record that is entirely instrumentation. Although there are no vocals featured on the Yadda, the seven minute track still says a lot. It takes its time to build into something much bigger than what it is at the start. By the end, the electronic humming and off-kilter guitars come together just in time for the drummer to let loose.

Motion City Soundtrack – Lose Control

It’s been three years since pop-punk rockers Motion City Soundtrack put out an album, but they’ve been due for a refresh. After their last release, they performed the entirety of their discography during a series of concerts. Now the group is ready to drop the new album Panic Stations, and the lead single Lose Control seems like it’s a palette cleanser. It features a glitchy, electronic veil over the familiar indie rock backdrop, and it captures a frenetic sort of energy.

New Order – Plastic

English rockers New Order have been at the music game since 1980, give or take a couple breakups. The group has reunited once again with a new record on the way, and if Plastic is any indication, it may be their best work yet. The song has everything you could want out of a New Order track: a building tension, climbing vocals, and a breakdown that will have you turning the nearest surface into an impromptu dance floor.

Beyoncé – Runnin’ (Lose It All)

Generally speaking, when Benyoncé puts out something new, you’re going to want to here it. After her last album snuck up on everyone and stayed in heavy rotation for months, Bey is back with a new track. Runnin’ (Lose It All) gets a production boost by Naughty Boy and a guest star role for Arrow Benjamin, but none of it overshadows Beyoncé, as she unleashes her epic range on the dramatic track.

That’s it for now, but check back every week for more new tunes to stream!
