The Giggs’ Best of 2014

the giggs best of 20142014 was the year that The Giggs truly found a home, whether we were in NYC or SLC. For Sydne in New York City, that ranged from getting tickets at the door to sold out shows like Ben Howard, to standing side-by-side with Aly in an empty Terminal 5, moments before the fan girls rushed in to see the 1975 play a sold out show. For Aly in Salt Lake City, a defining moment from 2014 was finally meeting one of the most important musicians in her life – Jack Antonoff (of Bleachers and fun.) – and watching him perform a unique acoustic version of “I Wanna Get Better”, in addition to working behind the scenes at concerts in the Salt Lake area. We’re just as college as ever, but we’re growing up a little bit.

Below are the 50 songs and albums that we chose as our Best of 2014 – the music that has shaped and colored moments from our year. Cheers to even greater moments in 2015!

– Sydne & Aly
