Alternative Friday

because great new music doesn’t always get the exposure it deserves

2017 – What an outstanding year for new and emerging artists! It was therefore a huge challenge to whittle the long list down to these 20 tracks, so sadly there were plenty of gems that couldn’t be included, (the monthly Mixtapes and Spotify Evolving Tunes are the places to head to during the year for more).

As previously, it’s another eclectic array of hugely impressive songs, so dive in and wander through everything from ridiculously catchy indie & pop, to floor filling electronica & synth, via some dark & dreamy alternative tunes, breathless ballads, and playful wordsmiths. Enjoy…
