If there’s one thing that gets most of us through the day, it’s new songs. Whether we’re scrolling through SoundCloud looking for mood tunes to help alleviate a case of the Mondays, or listening to a mixtape someone has sent our way, not a day goes by without some kind of music playing in our offices.

Since our inboxes tend to get inundated with projects from artists interested in coverage, we’re spotlighting some of the quietly wondrous singles that find their way to us each week. These artists may not have conquered the Billboard 100 (yet) but they’ve all got something unique to offer, and they’re all worth getting to know.

Scroll through to see our 10 under the radar tracks to discover this week, and stay tuned for a fresh selection next week.

"2AM"

Who: Justene Where: London Sounds Like: When the stars align and your new bootycall is also drunk at 2 am and texts you "in the Uber now."

"5200"

Who: Maxo Kream Where: Houston Sounds Like: Walking everywhere in slow motion because you're holding a boombox that slows time itself.

"Falling" ft. Okay Kaya

Who: Vera Where: Copenhagen Sounds Like: Installing a synthesizer where your oven should be then throwing a party where everyone writes a song together using only things found in the kitchen.

"Last Breath"

Who: Yaeji Where: NYC / Seoul Sounds Like: Shopping for Korean beauty products in a pink fluorescent-lit store with the occasional fly getting in your way.

“Less~More” ft. Okbadlands

Who: Golden Vessel Where: Brisbane Sounds Like: Getting seduced by a robot, which would be weirder if their back massages weren't so damn good.

"Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun"

Who: Bedouin Where: Brooklyn Sounds Like: If Lawrence of Arabia had a mixmaster on deck while laying siege to Damascus.

"Swervin'"

"Transformations"

Who: X-Coast Where: Berlin Sounds Like: Crashing a mermaid orgy and getting down aquatic-style.

"Until the Day Of"

Who: Lenis Where: San Diego Sounds Like: Staring wistfully into the sunset, sipping on the last piña colada of the day and wondering if he'll ever come home.

"Where Were You When"
