Milky Chance’s latest climb up the Alt18 Countdown is complete. The duo hit No. 1 this week with “Colorado,” swapping spots with Bastille and “Distorted Light Beam.” Here’s a recap of the countdown, plus links to industry news and previous weeks’ lists.
Over on the Finding Alt18 Discord we’ve started voting for a “People’s Champ Song of the Week” and there’s some pretty impressive work going on looking at the history of the Alt18 Countdown. Head on over for a look at the top Alt18 songs and bands from the past decade. You may be surprised who tops the list. I was.
