Soft-focus pop star Clairo keeps us enthralled to her Charm(s) as the gentle folktronica of “Nomad”—the second single from her forthcoming sophomore album—takes the mantle of heaviest KCRW rotation for the week. LA’s Pearl & The Oysters hang onto second place for the second week in a row with “Side Quest” and London’s Ezra Collective moves on up with their triumphant ode to dancing like no one’s watching. 

New and notable: UK alt-soul-star-in-the-making Hope Tala charts at last with her second single of '24, “Bad Love God.”
