A year has never gone by quicker than 2020, but simultaneously it’s been one of the longest, worst years ever.
However, it has been a year of bountiful music releases, a year for innovation in the industry and one to be remembered – and to be experienced later, when we finally see tours of 2020 albums in action.
The below are 20 of my favourite releases this year, 20 albums that really stood out to me this year, with a little bit of objectivity, and a hell of a lot of subjectivity.
Without further adieu, in no particular order: 2020’s Top 20 albums
Mondays always seem to be music posts. Maybe I should make music Mondays a thing on here.
This week I’m listing off some amazing musicians I wish I’m able to see perform live in concert one day, and some that I’ll never be able to see perform, and I truly wish I could have done.
SCANDAL are a four piece Japanese indie/rock/pop band that have been around for ages now. I first fell in love with SCANDAL when I was 14 I think, near 8 years later and I’m still a huge fan.
Their music spans genres, they’ve toyyed around with their style over the last 10 or so years, and it’s really paid off, for the most part.
The girls seem to perform in London once a year or so, now I live here I’m hoping I get the chance to see them soon. SCANDAL’s greatest hits dropped not too long ago, fingers crossed there’s an accompanying tour.
Bonus fact: I spent most of my teenage years yearning after Rina (third from left), the drummer of the band. My crush is still strong.
