Demo’s 50 Best Tracks Of 2015

Narrowing the best music of 2015 to fifty albums was hard, but choosing just fifty songs to represent the year was an even harder task. It might be more feasible to write down some of this years’ songs on little pieces of paper and pick them out of a hat – you could probably even get a half-decent list. But the best songs in our unscientific poll are the songs that Demo contributors listened to over and over, whether it was at a summer festival or on tinny laptop speakers. You might not agree with every song on this list or the order they’re in, but from Grimes and Jamie xx’s perfectly crafted pop to Nicolas Jaar and David Bowie’s mind-bending experimentation, there’s something for everyone here.
