Top Best Indie Rock Songs of 2020…
Best indie rock music 2020 - this selection may seem rather weak or “amateur” to connoisseurs of classic rock such as Led Zeppelin or Deep Purple ... However, we prefer to keep up with the times! Every year, new sound artists appear on the rock scene, among which there are truly worthy performers! Today we are going to take a look at the top best rock masterpieces of 2020! Ready? Then let's start!
Pop Evil - "Work"
After a loud instrumental lurch that Imagine Dragons could probably use for their next album, Pop Evil frontman Lee Kakati laments on the chorus of "ALL I DO, ALL I DO IS WORK!", causing a cacophony of beats and hooks...
"Will I ever break free?
Will I ever see what it's worth?
Because you tell me to be happy
When all I do, all I do is work...
I've been running since dawn
I've been making rounds, I've been pounding
It's been 90 days since I saw a friend..."
NOTHING - "Say Less"
“Say Less” is the name of perhaps one of the most inspiring rock singles of 2020…
I love to stop and scream
In a deafening litany…”
Porridge Radio - "7 Seconds"
Pretty dark song... In the words of Dan Margolin, frontman of Porridge Radio, "7 Seconds" is "the end of something that was never right"... Maybe that's why the track sounds like the artist finally got rid of his addiction? Rumbling drums and dirty guitars fight against uplifting synth swirls, which adds to the song's especially pleasant mood...
"I've been waiting for you for so long
And you know that I could never lie to you
You don't give me half my patience
which I taught you
I taught you love
And you never gave me enough..."
Claire Rosincrantz - "Backyard Boy"
The song quickly went viral on TikTok thanks to an eight-second dance challenge! She also brought Claire Rosincrantz a major label deal. Now this track sounds as great as it did in the summer of 2020…
“Dance with me in the backyard, boy.
You look super good in your velvet.
Take me around the block.
We can become obsessed.
And we'll turn up the volume on some good boy band tunes..."
Bob Mold - "American Crisis"
Election year in America turned out to be the basis for the return of Bob Mold with the track "American Crisis" ...
"I never thought I'd see this bullshit again
Coming of age in the 80s was bad enough
We've been marginalized and demonized
I have seen many of my generation die
Welcome back to the American crisis…”
Deftones - Ohms
As one of the most consistent bands in hard rock, Deftones release very good albums almost every four years… On Ohms 2020, the pinnacle ends with the final title track, which ties Chino Moreno’s vocal greatness to a riff that emerges in seconds… A melodic and touching composition "Ohms" explains why the new Deftones album should be considered one of the best of 2020!
All Time Low, Blackbear - "Monsters"
Quite an exciting song that definitely hooks the listener...
Dogleg - "Fox"
"You are in the fiction of the past that you wrote down
Stuck in the time my mind went out of my mouth
You're stuck in my head again, it's pressing against my skin
Do you think this case is unknown
When the father leaves and the mother returns to this house
I saw your face in a magazine in my sleep and it cut me off
And you still look around so people know
But have you ever noticed that you can't cut me out..."
Haim - "The Steps"
"The Steps" sounds like a warm summer breeze in Los Angeles... And Este Haim's light bass deftly overcomes the conflicting emotions that underlie the song. Danielle's voice is a mixture of determination and longing, while Alana's bright clean guitar riff underpins her performance...
Elvis Costello - "No Flag"
"I don't have a religion
I have no philosophy
I have a head full of ideas and words that don't seem to belong to me.
You can joke, but I don't understand what
I don't feel the future
but time seems to be ticking…”
Yves Tumor - "Gospel For A New Century"
Psychedelic soul opus Yves Tumor from the album Heaven to a Tortured Mind contains long stutters, unexpected turns and collisions with the walls of sound ... At the same time, the album itself is the clearest example of pop genius! The opening track "Gospel For a New Century" combines funk, sexy, horn blaring and crisp harmony, reminiscent of Prince's virtuosity...
The 1975 - "Me & You Together"
Matthew Healy doesn't do sentimental things, but if he did, it would be very similar to "Me & You Together" - a celebration of love, where the long-time love of the band leader gains new strength ... The song sounds especially cool when it reaches its emotional peak during second verse...
