Music in the 2020's and what to keep an eye out for 🙂

Music of the 2020s

Introduction

In the 2020s, music continues to be an important part of culture. The 2010s saw the rise of lo-fi music and the decline of rock music due to the increasing popularity of trap metal, indie rock and cloud rap. With an increase in popularity came more diverse genres like doomer pop, witch house, vaporwave and trap metal being introduced as well over the course of this decade.

The 2020s began with a continuation of the late 2010s scene of Latin, K-pop, emo rap and lo-fi music dominating the airwaves.

  • Latin music continued to be popular in this decade.

  • K-pop continued to be popular in this decade.

  • Emo rap was still popular in this decade.

  • Lo-fi music was still popular in this decade.

Pronounced dead after late 2000s and early 2010s, rock music began its rise to prominence once again in the second half of the 2010s, boosted by several new genres and subgenres being introduced that included trap metal, indie rock and cloud rap.

Rock music, which had been pronounced dead after the late 2000s and early 2010s, began its rise to prominence once again in the second half of the 2010s. The revival was boosted by several new genres and subgenres being introduced that included trap metal, indie rock and cloud rap.

Another factor that helped rock’s comeback was a surge in popularity for electronic dance music (EDM). EDM is an umbrella term for various genres of electronic music that make use of synthesizers or drum machines for their beats and melodies; it includes techno, trance, house and dubstep among others.

It was around this time when rock bands started melding their sound with EDM influences such as beat drops or drops—a section where there is no bassline but instead just a sudden silence with a loud “drop” sound effect—to create more danceable tracks while still preserving the essence of what made them great in the first place: strong vocals coupled with heavy guitars riffs

New genres like doomer pop, witch house, vaporwave, and trap metal were introduced as well over the course of the decade.

The new genres that emerged over the course of the decade included doomer pop, witch house, vaporwave and trap metal. Doomer pop is comprised of the sounds of doom metal combined with pop music — think grunge bands like Nirvana and Soundgarden mixed with Britney Spears’s “I Love Rock & Roll” or Taylor Swift’s “Today Was a Fairytale.” Witch house is a genre that combines the sounds of witch house (a kind of electronic music) with pop music. Vaporwave involves taking samples from pop songs and completely deconstructing them into unrecognizable pieces, which then get played at different tempos and pitches to create an entirely new composition. Trap metal combines trap beats (think Migos) with heavy metal guitar riffs; one example would be Ozzy Osbourne singing “Crazy Train” over a trap beat by Travis Scott or Lil Uzi Vert

Folk music and Indie pop continued to be popular in the mainstream.

You may have noticed that the popularity of indie pop and folk music continued in the 2020s. If you’re unfamiliar with either genre, it’s basically the same as saying “Indie pop and folk music were popular in the mainstream.” The popularity of indie pop and folk music was boosted by a new crop of artists like Billie Eilish and Shawn Mendes (side note: if you’ve never heard his song “In My Blood,” go listen to it now). They bring fresh sounds to their respective genres while still staying true to what makes them so great.

The best way for me to describe this decade is by quoting Shawn himself: “I ain’t gonna let you take my blood but I’m on your side.”

Music festivals continue to be popular.

Music festivals have become so popular that they are almost a necessity. In the 2020s, people attend music festivals to spend time with their friends or find love. Music festivals are also a way for young people to express themselves and enjoy music and dancing.

The 2020s is seeing a revival of psychedelic rock in which artists incorporate lo-fi elements taken from garage and psychedelia into their work.

The 2020s also saw a revival of psychedelic rock in which artists incorporate lo-fi elements taken from garage and psychedelia into their work. Artists like Phantogram, Beach House, The Flaming Lips and Tame Impala are known for this style.

The music scene is becoming more diverse during this decade.

You can expect to hear a lot more about music festivals this decade. The live experience is getting more popular, and it’s not just because of the music anymore; you can also meet people and find new music!

If you’re going to a festival in 2020s, be sure to bring some sunscreen so you don’t get sunburned on your face.

Conclusion

This is just a taste of the music that you can expect to hear in the 2020s. We hope you’re as excited as we are! And you can check it out all on SLERADIO.com 😉
