Though her interpretation of Sharon Van Etten’s “One Day” has totally ruled KCRW’s airwaves over the past few months, we sure have been craving much more from our Best New Artist of 2020, St. Panther. Consider those cravings officially satisfied as her breezy new single “Problems” tops this week’s chart.
