So a new year means more great music, new singles albums, festivals and gigs. I cannot wait. After missing gig season in late 2015 because of crippling student debt I’m more eager than ever. Many bands and artist didn’t wait too long into the new year before dropping hints that new material is going to be released.

MGMT’s twitter accounted tweeted on the December 25th, even before the new year began that “2016 is the year MGMT re-dominates your mind hole , see you then <3”. If you’re not familiar with them I suggest you listen to ‘Kids’ and ‘Electric Feel’. I’m so fed up of listening to their old material, they’re tunes but I think we’re all ready for fresh meat. And if they play at Reading even fucking better.

Two Door Cinema Club didn’t even hint at the idea of new music, they told us straight that our ears will be graced this year. They’re not as big as they use to be, I suppose the hype kind of died down, but could the fan rally be starting up again?

Vampire Weekend, well Ezra Koenig tweeted a very cryptic tweet which I’m still trying to figure out, but I’m sure it means 2016 is a prosperous year, for all of us. Unfortunately they will never release a song better than Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa.

So with those little treasures brightening up our year, or at least hinting that they will, 2016 isn’t looking as dull as it did before.
