INTO’s roundup of our favorite new releases vows to remain purposefully intersectional in highlighting the best in queer music. When things take a turn and you need a lift in spirits or just a distraction, music continues to serve as one of the most practical forms of self care.
The month of July was saturated with euphoric moments in music. Robyn teased her new material with a love letter to fans and then released the new track “Missing U” earlier today. Janet Mock starred in a new Blood Orange music video, delivering a moving monologue about occupying space as a QTPOC. Amandla Stenberg and King Princess continue to offer up glimpses at a romance that makes us blush. Alt-R&B ensemble The Internet released a full-length studio album Hive Mind, brimming with blissful throwback dancefloor cuts and ballads. Controversial pop twink Troye Sivan paid homage to The Knife. Finally, fresh off an inaugural mixtape release, Spain’s King Jedet went on a cute MMA date and discussed gender sexuality on i-D.
