From the break out song “Nothing Mtters “by The Last Dinner Party to the fresh summer vibes of “(It Goes Like) Nanana” by Peggy Gou, many of the songs released this year or absolute bangers. Songs from emerging acts like swim school and Aziya were thrilling and carefree, while newcomer Paris Paloma and now-veteran Billie Eilish contributed to the narrative of strong women breaking free in 2023.
