Alt18 Countdown on Sirius XM, 4/24/21: Twin XL, Glass Animals among four new bands on this week’s countdown


What a week! Four brand new songs, plus two old songs returning, to knock off some stalwarts on the Alt18 Countdowns this week.

Adam Melchor, Twin XL, Chvrches, and Glass Animals all join the countdown, while carolesdaughter and Mike Shinoda, iann dior and UPSAHL return. Those six knocked former No. 1’s “Dirty” by Grandson and “All About You” by The Knocks and Foster the People. Also dropping off: “Deadline” by Grouplove, “The Bandit” by Kings of Leon, “4Runner” by Rostam and “Waiting on a War” by Foo Fighters.

It all amounts to a big week of turnover, though nothing changed at the top. Manchester Orchestra and “Bed Head” continue to roll, while Twenty One Pilots wait their turn and The Neighbourhood round out the Top 3.
