TURN UP THE VOLUME Listens Back To The Year Of GEORGE ORWELL – 25 Ace Tracks From 1984

25 April 2021

1984 – The year of George Orwell‘s dystopian social science fiction novel published
in 1949. A visionary book focused on the consequences of totalitarianism, mass surveillance, and repressive regimentation of persons and behaviours within society.

Musically 1984 was a year of sonic eclecticism. Folk, punk, classic rock and pop, ska,
soul, post-punk, new wave. Turn Up The Volume‘s 1984 list has that diversity too.

And the 25 winners are…
