Monday, December 14, 2020


We’re thrilled to today bring you part two of our annual best tracks list, featuring another collection of the finest gems from around the world. The final part of our list will be coming to you next week, so stay tuned. Until then, let us take you through more of the tracks that we’ve loved during the year that was. If you missed part one last week, click here to catch up with more of our favourites. 

The Lounge Society – ‘Burn The Heather’ 

Just when we thought the year was almost over, up-and-comers The Lounge Society unleashed one of the most exciting singles of 2020 with ’Burn The Heather’. Look out for The Lounge Society next year, we’re predicting big moves from them in 2021 if their first two singles are anything to go off. 

RINSE – ‘Back Into Your Arms’ (ft. Hatchie)

Brisbane’s RINSE (the project of Joe Agius) has created pure magic with ‘Back Into Your Arms’ — everything about the track is perfect. Once you press play, don’t be surprised if you end up listening to this gem on-repeat for hours on end. 

Priestgate – ’Summ(Air)'

’Summ(Air)' is a song that randomly fell into our path after hours of searching online for new music and we haven’t forgotten it. The track is melancholic, yet vibrant and fast-paced — depending on your mood, it either makes you want to mosh up a storm or lay on the grass and stare at the sky. Priestgate are ones-to-watch. 

Tkay Maidza – ’24k’

The truth is, we had a hard time choosing which song to feature from Tkay’s release Last Year Was Weird, Vol 2. as each track is back-to-back fire. But there’s something about '24k' in particular that makes us forget about the type of year it was.  

Megan Thee Stallion – ‘What’s New’

Nothing was going to stop Megan from dominating this year and we can’t see her reign letting up anytime soon.


PVA – ’Sleek Form’ 

There are many reasons why we love PVA but one of them is how they refuse to be boxed into one category. Their all-consuming rave number ‘Sleek Form’ was one of their many highlights from 2020. 

Porcelain Boy – ‘dull girl’  

Sydney-based duo Porcelain Boy left us absolutely intoxicated with their enticing first single ‘dull girl’. We have a feeling they have some big tracks on the way in the new year and we can’t wait to hear what they’ve been working on. 

Katy J Pearson – ‘Hey You’

Katy J Pearson created the soundtrack to the majority of our daydreams this year. Everything she creates is exqusite and ‘Hey You’ is absolutely no exception. 

Pretty Sick – ‘Angel Landing’

NYC band Pretty Sick put their best foot forward with their EP Deep Divine. We’ve listened to ‘Angel Landing’ a lot over the last few months, and each time we hear it, it takes us to an indescribable place.

Little Simz – ‘might bang, might not’

Little Simz continues to prove why she’s a force to be reckoned with and ‘might bang, might not’ only reaffirms this. 

Oscar Lang – ‘Antidote to Being Bored’

Oscar oozes Brit-pop swagger on his electrifying track ‘Antidote to Being Bored’. He said that he wanted to create a stadium rock banger and he did this and so much more. 


Pynch – ‘Somebody Else’ 

Last year, Pynch appeared on our end of year list with ’Disco Lights’ and they’ve done it again in 2020 with their mesmerising single ’Somebody Else’. We're always excited by Pynch and they always come through with something incredibly stunning. 


Moses Sumney – ‘Me In 20 Years’

I remember pressing play on ‘Me In 20 Years’ right at the beginning of the year and feeling frozen in time. It might have been released in January but ‘Me in 20 Years’ is impossible to forget. It’s a masterpiece.


Alice Skye – ‘Grand Ideas’

Alice Skye's charming single provides words of comfort to anyone who has felt the weight of the world on their shoulders. It’s a beautiful track by one of Australia’s best artists. 

pizzagirl – ‘cape canaveral’ 

Released before things got weird, pizzagirl’s ‘cape canaveral’ is the ultimate party anthem. We still love the song just as much as we did in February.
