Our countdown goes to a timely blast of albums that range from the political to pure slices of rock and rap.
1. Imagine Dragons
Imagine Dragons is a pop rock band from Nevada, which first gained exposure with their single “It’s Time”, and the studio album Night Visions, but after the Evolve Tour was completed, they released Origins in 2018 and won three American Music Awards, one Grammy, one MTV Music Award has sold 12 million albums worldwide.
2. American Football
The impossible trick is that they slowed down, but prettier melodies don’t make these songs less gutting than “Never Meant” and LP3 is not above new tricks, as they invite textures while opening up possibilities.
3. The National
I Am Easy To Find will be accompanied with a music video.
4. The Twilight Sad
The Twilight Sad have spoken of their fifth album, recorded after the death of Scott Hutchison, on grief and the redemptive power of music, but rather than being owned by demons, it’s an 11-track exorcism, a full-bodied mood-piece in the fight to feel grateful.
5. Backstreet Boys
The new album will highlight their influences for 25 years with a lead single, a romantic anthem and an acoustic track nailing thus a tricky act of sounding like today’s climate, earning their first Adult Top 10 hit in 17 years.
6. Jonas Brothers
You’ll feel totally powerless in the face of this nostalgic appeal and catchy swagger, as “Sucker” definitely gets to us.
7. Arctic Monkeys
The guitarist slots into the new with these songs.
