Stray Kids Are Back And Bolder Than Ever With Celebratory New Single ‘MIROH’

How do you sum up a Stray Kids song? The JYP Entertainment rookies have been (self-) producing some of the boldest, most sonically interesting K-pop tracks since their debut a year ago, and their latest, "MIROH," is no exception.

Bop Shop: Songs From Sky Ferreira, Foster The People, Szjerdene, And More

I went back and forth over which song from Stray Kids's latest album, Clé 1: MIROH, to include on this week's list. In fact, I started writing this with "Victory Song" in mind — a confident, in-your-face track with an explosive EDM hook that boasts the kind of big energy we've come to expect from…

Bop Shop: Songs From Billie Eilish, Hozier, Tomorrow X Together, And More

I fell in love with AJR the first time I heard "Sober Up," a bittersweet plea to a loved one to help someone "feel something again," with a whimsical singsong chorus and some help from Weezer's Rivers Cuomo to bring it full circle as a track that felt like light pining for a relationship from…
