Hozier’s self-titled album is his debut album released in September 2014 which reached commercial success almost immediately. Hozier was placed in the top ten lists in the UK, Ireland, Greece, Denmark, Australia, the U.S., and Canada. “Take Me to Church” which is the first song on the album has over 1.2 billion adds on Spotify. Over the years the album has gained critical acclaim and is debatably one of the most memorable Folk/ Blues albums of all time. Hozier has always been a part of my music since I jumped into the Alternative music universe. The music videos for “Cherry Wine” and “Take Me to Church” are etched in my mind. They had such a strong impact on me for their

Classic Rock eventually evolved into Alternative Rock, but some bands didn’t get the memo. These bands show that even in 2020 Classic Rock still creeps out on top. These bands have similarities to popular bands of the 60s, 70s, and 80s. Whether you’re a fan of the old music or the new music you’ll love these artists!

The latest album from the psychedelic pop band Glass Animals is suitably called Dreamland. Not only is “Dreamland” one of the most impactful songs on the album, but the whole sound of the album gives that feeling of a dreamland.

His music sounds a lot like boy pablo and dayglow, so the genre is
