…This is the Inbox Jukebox:

Beach Weather – “Unlovable”

“Unlovable” seems destined to make the pop charts burst and TikToks more memorable. Maybe it’s the peak alternative rock of it all. Or the buzzy but bright vocals. Maybe it’s how intrinsically we all relate to feeling unlovable—meanwhile, knowing we’re not the only ones turns up the love. Beach Weather is back and they brought a sunny, head-nodding hit for the summer and beyond.

Maggie Lindemann – “self sabotage”

Maggie Lindemann casts a dark-pop-rock incantation with “self sabotage”—it’s shredded and melodic, over a beat that knocks with an urgency.

347aidan – “so what!”

You might expect “so what!” to be tinted P!nk when the song starts but—while the sentiments of giving a middle finger to conformity are similar—347aidan throws back to the riotous chants and unfiltered emotion of punk. The feelings are felt with such a relatable intensity that you’ll be singing along by the end (and daring anyone to try an’ stop your flow).

Elyse Jewel – “Friends”

Written for those times when you and your crush don’t see your relationship the same way, “Friends” captures those fluttering and claustrophobic emotions as surely as a butterfly in a glass jar. Elyse Jewel cannot be denied, she sings her true-life story with floaty vocals and a warming cadence of confession, accompanied by rhythm and keys that hook us in and keep us in the moment. If you know, you know.

John Harvie – “Not Another Song”

IT’S NOT ABOUT LOVE but then again you gotta get paid. John Harvie is done with writing love songs but he and our beloved pop-punk are forever. “Not Another Song” is ready for your car speakers and your closest friends—hard-driving guitar and rollicking lyrics—with the top open and the air conditioning up. Rocking out to this one is gonna get hot.
