Billy Nomates released one of the more striking debuts of the year, mixing country, pub rock, post-punk, hip hop, UK garage and more into a brash style that was uniquely hers. The album was produced by Portishead's Geoff Barrow who released it via his Invada label, and it also features pals Sleaford Mods, but the sound is all Billy's. If you haven't heard her album -- which made our Best of 2020 list -- yet, you definitely should. LIsten, and watch a couple of her videos, below.
