Genre of the Week 4: Britpop

#GenreoftheWeek Britpop 

This week has been Britpop week at Nowhere Bros. I have been posting daily about Britpop, its history, its artists and its legacy. 

Below is a list of the songs I posted. Although it is not a definitive playlist, it is a starting point for getting into Britpop, or re-familiarizing yourself with Britpop, twenty years on. There are of course plenty more tracks out there as well. 

It has been a wonderful week posting about Britpop, and indeed reminiscing about the music of my youth. Karl is back this coming week with a new genre. Should be good… see you in a week. 

Check us out and like our page on Facebook.
I have also created a Spotify Playlist for this weeks genre as well. Spotify/Britpop
