Another week with turnover on the Alt18 Countdown. Seven songs dropped off, though Twenty One Pilots simply swapped in “Saturday” for “Shy Away” and The Neighbourhood is back with “Stargazing” after a week off.
Bastille brought a new song, “Distorted Light Beam,” and Lorde’s “Solar Power” also joined the Alt18.
To make room for the changes, here’s who dropped out:
- Vance Joy, Missing Piece
- Holly Humberstone, The Walls Are Way Too Thin
- Coldplay, Higher Power
- Saint Motel, It’s All Happening
- Blu DeTiger, Vintage
- Beabadoobee, Last Day on Earth
- Twenty One Pilots, Shy Away
Glass Animals spent another week at No. 1 with “Space Ghost Coast to Coast,” while Modest Mouse lingers with “We Are Between.”
