Dork's Albums of 2021

From unexpected superstars to returning heroes, here’s the year in its standout records.

The Best of 2021: Wolf Alice: "We had a feeling it was good, but it was hard to perceive it for what it was"

With every new music drop, it feels as though Wolf Alice couldn’t possibly get any better. Then, they do another album and deliver something that’s once again surprising, innovative, and ridiculously special. Magic.

The Best of 2021: Arlo Parks: "No part of me thought that any of it would happen"

At the start of the year, we were pretty sure Arlo Parks would ‘do quite well’, but what followed was positively interstellar.

The Best of 2021: Claud: "A lot of my album is about learning when you've outgrown something"

No stranger to these here pages, when Claud released ‘Super Monster’ earlier this year, they were well on their way to the centre of our hearts.
