MNDR’s ‘#1 In Heaven’; the video

We posted MNDR’s new single, ‘#1 In Heaven’, on Tuesday when it dropped and it’s been on repeat ever since.

It’s already got itself a video that sees Amanda is full on ‘80’s Pop star mode, sans giant glasses!

‘#1 In Heaven’ is out now with MNDR’s full length album due out this summer, both on Ultra.

MNDR’s ‘#1 In Heaven’

mndr

MNDR’s new single is really good! No two ways about it!

Released today, ‘#1 In Heaven’ is catchy, rousing, SynthPop with MNRD’s unique Indie-Electro edge. It’s like a fine wine that hits you with different elements. When I listen to it I get hits of mid-‘80’s Depeche Mode, late ‘80’s Indie songwriting and contemporary Electro, all packaged up with Amanda Warner and Peter Wade’s particular sound. It’s got both classic anthemic quality and a rough ‘n’ ready rawness to it that will have it sticking in your head. We really liked MNDR anyway, but this track has us gagging for the album.

MNDR reMixes Austra

Following on from their critically acclaimed début album, ‘Feel It Break’ Canadian Avant-Pop outfit Austra are earing up for the release of a reMix collection, titled ‘Sparkle’.

Alongside some producers such as Planningtorock and Mark Pistel featured in the package is this slice of dark tropical from New York’s raining SynthPop act MNDR. Amanda and Peter get their steel drums going for this mix which, combined with pulsating synths serve to create a mysterious vibe for the previously sparkling track. It’s a totally different mood for the song, but one that is perfectly complimentary to the original.

Austra – Spellwork (MNDR Nighttime reMix)

Austra have found themselves on the Polaris Prize Short List for 2011, which is apparently, in Canada like, the Mercury Music Prize is here in the UK.

‘Sparkle’ is released 26th July.

MNDR’s ‘Cut Me Out’ video

MNDR’s recent free single ‘Cut Me Out’ is now available in video form.

Simple yet effective the video is pretty much a tour of a bunch of video effects on Amanda’s head. It never feels uninspired though and works quite well.

You can pick up the full quality version of ‘Cut Me Out’ at Green Label Sound.

MNDR Vs. Hervé

Green Label Sound sure love giving away great tracks for free!

Having already released MNDR’s ‘Cut Me Out’ for free on their official website they now take the same approach with this reMix from UK Rave master and Cheap Thrills head-honcho Hervé. Be prepared for some rough and ready digital dance music. Bass heavy and in your face, Hervé’s reMix is the kind of track that makes you forget where you are on the dancefloor, until the big breakdown kicks in.

MNDR’s new single

MNDR, New Yorks ElectroPop heroes, have just dropped a brand new single from free.

The duo, made up of Amanda Warner & Peter Wade, are just staring out on a US tour supporting Chromeo (what a show that will be!) and have released ‘Cut Me Out’ to celebrate, Starting off with some moody synth burbling, the track quickly kick into it’s spikey, yet fun, main. Not many acts could take icy, ColdWave-esq, synths and make them sound , well, pretty bouncy, but I think that’s what gives MNDR their charm. The ability to sound both edgy and accessible.

MNDR releases ‘Fade to Black’ 7”

mndr

‘Fade to Black’ was actually the first MNDR track I heard, way back when it was part of the ’E.P.E’ EP, it was the track that really got me into this New York ElectroPop duo.

Great news for us in the UK then, as ‘Fade to Black’ is being released as a double A-side with fellow ‘E.P.E.’ track ‘I Go Away’ on limited edition 7” via Trouble Records.

Despite most of the UK knowing Amanda Warner’s unique vocals from Mark Ronson’s storming ‘Bang Bang Bang’ her voice seems much more suited to her raw SynthPop. MNDR’s music is stripped down enough to be Minimal Synth but catchy and funky enough to be DiscoPop, weird huh? But it really works. If you didn’t like the Ronson track (and if you didn’t you need help!) don’t write off MNDR, ‘cos their own material is some of the best SynthPop being produced right now. Just check out the anthemic ‘Fade to Black’:

Russ Chimes reMixes Ronson

Mark Ronson’s current single ‘Bang Bang Bang’ (Featuring ElectroPop artist MNDR and Q-Tip, ex of A Tribe Called Quest) is actually pretty good. It’s got a real old school Electro Funk feel to it and is generally pretty darn banging.

But, oh look! Russ Chimes has got his hands on it (and, as we know, his hands have the Midas touch) and, keeping the elements that made the original groove, has transformed it into a monster disco workout. We really cannot wait to hear what Russ’ EP will hold, I hope he releases it while the weather is still good, I have a feeling it might just end up being the soundtrack to my summer…if it’s out in time!
