Braids, La Force, Lowell: Radio 3's top 30 songs for the week of June 11, 2018

Editorial Staff

Montreal electro-pop trio Braids released two new tracks last month, which they described on Facebook as "sonic apothecary for digital malaise." Indeed, "Collarbones" is a thoughtful and soulful exploration of the pressure on women to live up to societal expectations. The track debuts at #27 on our top 30 this week.

You might already be familiar with Ariel Engle's voice via her work with venerable indie supergroup Broken Social Scene, but she also releases her own solo work under the name La Force. Her single, "You Amaze Me" is the smooth groove you need on your summer playlist. It's the highest debut on the chart this week at #21.

Other debuts this week include Frog Eyes with "Idea Man," Smaller Hearts with "Summertime III," and U.S. Girls with "Rosebud."

Lowell rockets to the top spot with her dance-floor anthem "War Face."
