May 2013 Top 20: Part 2

Welcome back to this month's Top 20! As I said in Part 1, it's been incredibly hard to narrow it down, and I would say the no.s 1 and 2 are both equally worthy of the top spot! 
If you can only watch one video though I would recommend HAIM as they are definitely my favourite band of the year so far and I love their video for 'Forever' - it has such a modern yet nostalgic feel to it and the dynamic between the 3 sisters is excellent! Enjoy...

In part 1, I'm going to run down from numbers 20 to 11, so check back in tomorrow to see my top 10 and find out what made my number one spot!
