"Good 4 U" much more so than "Brutal," IMO... (I think "Brutal" would have been dismissed as "poseur-ish" in the '90s, in a way that's not applicable now).

Grimes - Easily

Sounds heavily inspired by late 90s William Orbit

Fair, I'm maybe focusing on the Elastica resemblance too much.

Another big one:

Calvin Harris feat. Dua Lipa - One Kiss

Ella Mai - Boo’d Up

Also gives a strong 90s r&b sound

Robyn - Between the lines

Actually several songs from “honey” could qualify...

I mean, a lot of 1975 songs, but "Me & You Together Song"

Vinnie, Tuesday, 25 May 2021 03:04 (two months ago) link

Planet 1999 - party, replay... I guess their whole discography

✖✖✖ (Moka), Tuesday, 25 May 2021 03:06 (two months ago) link

Oh yeah another one from this year:

TDJ - lalala

one month passes...

Just overheard CLOVES - dead and thought it was a trip hop / industrial pop song from the late 90’s.

Reminds me of Garbage.

this London Grammar band sounds like Dido

This (good) Bachelor song nicks a bit from Superdrag's "Sucked Out" and weds it to some bits of Pixies and Breeders. Pretty '90s.

Now Now - "SGL"

boxedjoy, Tuesday, 13 July 2021 21:54 (three weeks ago) link

both of those specifically make me think of the 90s through the prism of the Daria soundtrack

From 2015 but maybe it qualifies... Heard this used as the theme song to a podcast and assumed it was a forgotten grunge record from 1993 or something:
