Best bands in 2021 you should know about 

2021 has seen a major shift in music. Now that bands are not allowed to perform in stages with an audience, the music scene has changed and will continue to do so until the pandemic is over. 

Still, despite the hiatus and lack of physical gigs, a lot of emerging and established bands in the indie music scene continue to produce music that can sweep listeners off their feet. So, if you want to discover new tunes to listen to, here are some of the artists we can recommend you at Allahabad:

Sufjan Stevens 

Sufjan Stevens is an American musician who started his career producing contemporary folk music. While Sufjan has been in the music industry for quite some time, he has recently released new albums that are worth listening to. Just this year, Sufjan released an album of instrumental collections titled ‘Convocations’. 

With heavy bass, synths, and electro pop beats, the songs he releases on a weekly basis are engaging and at times, unnerving. If you’re a fan of mellow instrumental songs, Sufjan’s album is worth the listen.
