Top 18 Songs of 2018

As the genre lines continued to blur in 2018, lots of great music was released by fresh new faces and the familiar with new tunes. It was a banner year for newer artists like Billie Eilish and Greta Van Fleet and a solid start for Snail Mail and The Aces. Odesza started 2018 off with a bang that saw them play numerous festivals, sold out arenas and a coveted placement in that famous cell phone ad over the summer. The return of The 1975 and twenty one pilots stirred up their rabid fanbases as they geared up for their new album releases and demonstrated how both artists have evolved and grown.
