The resurrection of punk presents an exciting year for music.
Punk is back. After a frustrating year politically, socially and environmentally, more and more artists are coming to the forefront to unveil angsty tunes that really capture an uncertain climate where a healthy mix of individuality and conformity is the order of the day.
These upcoming albums are the most exciting punk releases to come this year. We’re not talking the TikTok pop-punk revival, but a simple return to a shouty, DIY aesthetic that shaped a generation back in the 70s and 80s.
