Finding high-energy workout music from the last 10 years was harder than I expected.
Playlist searches got me remixed oldies, EDM or rap/hip-hop (all of which which I like, but the 1st is outside parameters, while the 2nd & 3rd intrude on hyperfocus.)
And I got screaming Scandinavians if I used heavy metal as a keyword.
I had to search for “new bands like___” to get lists I could mine for names.
Happy ending: TIL the 70’s rock sound is having a comeback, & 8 yr old me is v happy.
Bands I’m listening to at the moment:
Greta Van Fleet
(none of those are exactly new, but they’ve dropped albums in the required timeframe.)
Also listening to Bebe Rexha, because a teen patron at the ‘brar shared their ultra-excitement about road-tripping to Toronto for a concert this summer, & enthusiasm is contagious.
