2020 is going to be another exciting year for the indie music scene and the beginning of a new decade. With lots of new albums from bands such as Bombay Bicycle Club, Twin Atlantic, Blossoms or The 1975 in the making, 2020 promises to be just as good as 2019. While some records already have a definite release date and title, others are in early production stages or have merely been announced.

New York rockers The Strokes have recently revealed they will release a new album in 2020, their first since 2013, while Aussie trio DMA’s have announced their third studio album for April 24.
Debut albums have been confirmed for Torres (Jan 31), Flawes (Jan 31) and Drama (Feb 14). The Orielles, Gengahr and Seafret have announced their sophomore albums.

The 1975 will follow up 2018’s A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships with a new album titled Notes On A Conditional Form (Feb 21). Blossoms have announced their third album Foolish Loving Spaces for January 31st. Mystery Jets also have a new album in the works, titled A Billion Heartbeats, which has been pushed back to April 3rd.
