Ocean Alley Takes Out Triple J’s Hottest 100 Of 2018

Written by Emmy Mack on January 27, 2019

Update: triple j Hottest 200 of 2018 results

Ocean Alley have smashed the triple j‘ Hottest 100 of 2018, coming in at the #1 spot with their funky chill-banger ‘Confidence’.

And not only have they taken out the top honours, the Sydney groove-rockers basically crushed this year’s whole countdown with a whopping four tracks placing all up, with their Like A Version cover of Player’s ‘Baby Come Back’ charting at #16, their original ‘Knees’ at #10 and ‘Happy Sad’ down at #100.

The gold medal in this year’s big list was widely predicted to be a two horse race between ‘Confidence’ and Childish Gambino’s ‘This Is America’, which ended up coming in down at #4.

The Top 10 was then rounded out by Ruby Fields’ nostalgic tearjerker ‘Dinosaurs’ at #9, Billie Eilish’s ‘when the party’s over’ at #8, Mallrat’s ‘Groceries’ at #7, Dean Lewis’s ‘Be Alright’ at #6, Amy Shark’s ‘I Said Hi’ at #5, Travis Scott making his Hottest 100 debut with ‘SICKO MODE’ at #3 and Fisher’s club banger ‘Losing It’ at #2.

This year’s countdown featured 65 Aussie songs, with a record-breaking 2,758,584 votes lodged in all up.

21 artists are making their very first appearance in the countdown ever, including G-Flip and Lime Cordiale.
