Another wild year is coming to a close and one thing's for sure: It didn't lack in good music, soundtracking what has happened over the past twelve months. Instead of yet another worn out best-of list from 50 to zero, the NBHAP staff went to some length to compile some of the most remarkable new releases under three vital aspects: What was new, what was surprising and what left the most impact? Dive into our selection right here.
Danish artist Lydmor is an unstoppable force of nature, one that is destined to push her own artistic and personal boundaries with every new release. Her pop is adventurous, relentless and forward-thinking and in a time that’s dominated by a lot of question marks it’s not the worst thing to imagine a better future. Together with her music we might be ready to shape it and this exchange will hopefully ignite it. And of course, she also picked tunes for our beloved playlist.
The current phase of self isolation is forcing us to be creative, kill some time and maybe also do something we've never done before. Listening to music can be a great way of coping with the situation and we decided to make a little challenge out of it. NBHAP head Norman finally found some time to give the music of Icelandic icon Björk far more attention than he did in the past years. And he quickly discovered that it's not enough.
Besides having one of Europe's strongers musical line-ups the Primavera Sound in Barcelona is also one of the best organized open air events, despite being such a huge one. Here's why we had such a great time.
Following a four year long absence we're happy to be finally back in Barcelona, reporting from Europe's best festivals with the most impressive line-up, including pretty much all of your favourite bands. But even if you won't be making it to the festival in person the Primavera Sound will bring you some of 2018's finest performances directly into your living room.
The buzzing Portuguese artist takes us on a trip through some of her most loved musical highlights, whether they are from the past or more recent ones. The result is an exciting trip for all music lovers.
What makes a music video truly great? The answer can obviously only be a subjective one but it's always nice to get it from professionals who know a thing or two about that special art form. So, that's why we asked them for this year's visually stunning clip recap.
