Finding new music

Not much for starting discussions as I’m generally not very communicative but I thought I’d give it a whirl with something simple that’s a new reality for me now in my mid forties.
When I was younger, I would find it easy enough to discover new music that I liked. It helped that I had a circle of friends who were like minded with enough curiosity to have a listen to things that weren’t in their usual stereo rotation. Of course, back then our local version of MTV made it easy to just sit and watch and be exposed to something new.
Nowadays, I find it noticeably more difficult to be exposed to things I might enjoy and so here I am. I guess my intention here is to pose the question: how do you find new music you like?

Perhaps not the answer anyone wants to hear, but YouTube Premium has revolutionized my life! I find the algorithm is pretty good. Sometimes I’ll also Google something like “bands similar to *name of band or artist*”, and that has brought success too. I don’t know anyone in real life that has as much affection for synthwave, so have had to discover it all on my own; honestly, it’s been like digging for gold!

There is always a lots of new music to discover in music magazines, on Bandcamp, etc.
