Top 5 Songs of December 2020

What a year it’s been. The world got turned upside down, but music has once again prevailed. 2020 has been packed full of great releases. I will keep this post brief as I plan to post my Album of the Year list soon, which feels like a better time to recap on the year properly.

December, though, wasn’t short of great new music either. Admittedly, I slowed my listening down a bit, to catch my breath mainly. But, without fail, I still bring you my top 5 songs of December 2020 which bounces from art rock to folk, and there’s even a couple of new, alternative Christmas songs for you to check out. I appreciate my post might be early, but honestly, it’s unlikely I will get to listening to anything new over the next week.

You can check out all of these songs in my December Spotify playlist, or if you don’t have Spotify, click on the songs below to listen to them on alternative platforms. You will notice The Bell and The Hammer, whose December release isn’t on Spotify, have been replaced by Porridge Radio’s ‘The Last Time I Saw You (O Christmas)’ on the Spotify playlist, which is my honourable mention this month (I literally just heard it).

I would encourage to listen to the whole ‘Is It Christmas? EP’ by The Bell and the Hammer if you have the time. They are great people who I know would appreciate your ears.

Follow the link at the top of this post too to find my older posts and my top songs for the rest of the year so far.
