Finding Alt18
We saw some motion on the Alt18 this week with five new songs joining the countdown. No change at the top, though.
I predicted in last week newsletter’s we’d hear the new one for Sir Sly soon, and there’s “Welcomes the Pressure” at No. 18 this week.
Also, new (including returning songs):
  • Shaed and Two Feet - Part Time Psycho
  • Alice Merton - Vertigo
  • Still Woozy - Rocky
  • Bleachers - Stop Making This Hurt
Twenty One Pilots hold on for another week at No. 1 with “Shy Away,” while Manchester Orchestra held No. 2 with “Bed Head.” If anyone is going to break up the Top 2 next week it’ll be The Band CAMINO with “1 Last Cigarette” or Glass Animals with “Space Ghost Coast to Coast.”
Leaving this week: Joywave, KennyHoopla, Coldplay, Imagine Dragons, and Black Pumas.
