RELEASE RADAR is here to give you the breakdown of the top singles, albums, and videos of the week, so you can head into your weekend with a new list of killer tunes.


Photo Ops | "July"

The dreamy folk track from LA's Photo Ops is all about self care. "'July' is about the limits of what you can offer someone," the singer said. "And when that bumps up against the limits of what you yourself need to thrive—healthy boundaries and a healthy amount of Jeff Lynne-style acoustic guitars."
