Good music from this decade (2010s)

Share good or notable tunes from this decade only.

Can be obscure, can be Lemonade. But it has to be 2010s.

so ive been into this new genre called synthwave which is basically 80's music <think soundtrack like john carpenter or even sega genesis music, or think killers> that i think could be huge. the main "band" i like is the Midnight. youtube sent me down a rabbit hole with this genre and bandcamp.com literally lets you just dl the albums legally for free, most of the time

I'm going to post some pretty mainstream hits, for those who haven't followed music of late but might want to try something with mass appeal. I'd love to hear others.

First off, Imagine Dragons - Believer. Done in this decade's rock-pop style.

I'm With Her - See You Around

A Fantastic trio of Americana singers.  The harmonies are stunning.
There's a bible verse,
says the last one shall be first.
Well, if that verse is true,
there's hope for me and you.
-Kevin Kerby

Oh, sorry if this thread is redundant.

I'll be listenng to the suggestions. I like old music but don't want to be stuck in the past.

I don't follow charts but some songs are just huge in popular culture. Also, I have a teen. She loves Imagine Dragons. But I brought this Bruno Mars hit to her - love the 80s sound.

Nothing redundant about this thread, Laoghaire...............feel free to keep filling it full of stuff and listening to the stuff others put in.

The more the word is spread about the big wide world of music that is out there the better.

Azealia Banks.

Theophilus London.

The former is a nutter of course, but that doesn't mean she is untalented, far from it.

My personal favourite band in the 2010's is The War on Drugs. Their music I absolutly love. It's expansive, melodic, with amazing arrengments and out of this world production. I don't think there's one song I dislike. Adam Granduciel (the leader) has only one negative point, which are his lyrics, but as Pitchfork writes in a review: itís the impossible sweep and grandeur of the music that tells the real story, of how a rush of sound can take us somewhere we canít explain.

They have 2 albums that are a must in your library, "Lost in the Dream" from 2014 and "A Deeper Understanding" from 2017 (which got them a Grammy for Best Rock Album). They are now in front of my homies Arcade Fire as best rock act of the decade.

Under The Pressure, from 2014 (extremely long fade out that the end, but worth it IMOH)


"Pain" from 2017 (just a great song, listen with headphones if you can)



First Chair. Last Call.

Financeguy, give us some sample songs to try.

MPare, Under The Pressure sounded interesting to me. Heard of the band but not any of the music - looks like there is still some rock and roll being made. The song titles made me think they might be Bowie fans.
