Awards2012BestSong

This is it!

It’s been an odd year for ElectroPop, Nu-Disco, SynthWave, Nu-Italo, Dreamwave, Indie-Electro, Minimal Synth, SynthPop etc…. Whereas last year provided us with a steady stream of tunes, this year’s classic tracks seemed to come in fits and spurts, and some of the best tunes of the year came from unlikely sources. In the world of ElectroPop particularly, 2012 birthed a handful of acts that are sure to become big players in the genre over the next twelve months.

As ever, apologies to those who didn’t make the list, to those we forgot about and apologies to ourselves as we’ll probably be kicking ourselves when we remember that one track that slipped out minds when compiling the list. But there’s no turning back now.

MNDR have been on our radar for a few years now, but it was 2012 that Amanda Warner and Pete Wade ramped things up a gear. This début album, Feed Me Diamonds, was an amazing collection of tracks that really deserved the critical acclaim that was heaped upon it. It’s the album’s lead single, #1 In Heaven, that takes our top spot. A deliciously subversive slice of ElectroPop, a rough ‘n’ ready electronic anthem inspired by the story of Patty Hearst. MNDR’s sound is so unique, both musically and in Amanda’s vocal style, that whenever they release a new track it’s like a breath of fresh air. Non-conformist ElectroPop that found a massive place in our hearts.
