I'm sure you've been wondering where will this never ending music recycling take us next. We started off the 00s with post-punk and garage rock, then proceeded to shoegaze and late 80s synth pop. In the last 2 years, there's been an explosion of 60s beach pop and the 90s vibe. I have personally noticed the "emerging" trends of this year to be: R'n'B aesthetics, goth synth pop and, of course, the 70s disco.
Now, the inspiration for this list came from songs released this year - there were quite a few, but the list expanded to include a handful release in the previous 4 years. You know, to truly highlight this as a "trend".
Break out those four wheel skates and disco ball!
