Top Alternative Acts for 2018

There’s more to music than just straight forward pop and we’ve thought long and hard about our choices to share with you all. The following acts do us proud by breaking sound barriers and defying societies rules on what pop music is. We look forward to jamming to these acts all year long, particularly in the summer with a beer.

THUNDER JACKSON 

Thunder Jackson has rocked our worlds since their first release last year. ‘Guilty Party’ has to be played in our office daily, at a volume that we will not apologise for! The Cardiff/Oklahoma based duo are set for a great year and we will be right there grooving embarrassingly next to them!

PORTUGAL. THE MAN

Although these guys have been around for a while, they came back last year with a bang and we’re so happy that they did so. After featuring on the soundtrack for Will Smith’s latest Netflix film ‘Bright’, their tour in February is about to be crazy – be sure to check them out if you haven’t already!

SUZI WU

Suzi Wu is girl on a mission for sure. If you haven’t heard of her yet then we guarantee that by the end of the year she’ll be on all of your playlists. Her track ‘Taken Care Of’ shows her creativity perfectly and if you enjoy feisty and fierce characters in London streets then Suzi will be your latest addiction.

TWO ANOTHER

Taking it down a notch to a calm, cool and collected note are Two Another. The R&B/alternative infused duo from two alternate universes connect and become the soft yet hard-hitting band that we’ve grown quite attached to. If you’re looking to two step your way into next week then do so with these guys in your ear.

PARCELS 

Let’s put it simply; If you love Daft Punk then you’ll adore these guys. They have taken funk/alternative music to 2017 with the best attitude ever. We guarantee that the power of their groove will keep you going all week long. If you’re looking for a way to jazz up your midweek Parcel’s will take you to Saturday night within minutes.
