A hand-picked collection of songs that made an unusual year a whole lot better, featuring music from Islands, Gulfer, Luna Li, Odonis Odonis, Small Sins, and more
It’s been another incredible year for music, and 2021 wouldn’t be complete without a list of our favourite songs. We search high and low to bring you some of the best music out there, so we hope you dig these tracks as much as we do.
That said, this list is a mix of many different sounds and genres that have inspired us throughout this unusual year. Without these artists’ contributions to music, things wouldn’t have been the same. Music, more often than not, gets us through everything.
Below, you’ll find our top songs of 2021, and of course, a playlist at the bottom to go along with it. Press play, listen in order, hit shuffle; it doesn’t matter because it’s all about the music and nothing else.
Finally … make sure you hit up the artist links to find out more about these talented humans. One thing is certain … they deserve your attention.
