Indie Electronic

Some things are worth the wait. It took six years, a name change, and a change of coasts, but Waterbed (Formerly MVCLES) finally put out their debut album. And the Glo-fi is stronger than ever. FOREVER is fantastic electro pop. To go along with the brilliance of Sweet n Sour, there are also gems like Where U R.
Water Me Down is a sturdy, pop ballad about holding true to yourself and not giving an eff about someone having a problem with the way you present yourself. Ever the classy lady with the impressive vocal chops, Mothica delivers the message with her silky tongue and catchy synth chords to boot.
There are some things your are immediately in the bag for and all you can do is hope for the best. A Janelle Monae song called Pynk featuring Grimes feels like some fanfic I’m not nearly brave enough to write. I loved this before I knew it existed.
Wasted is an infectious little tune that’s a complete departure from Peking Duk's electro-pop or melodic future-trap sounds of yesteryear, but it’s awesome and bringing some light to one of the best genres to ever hit dance music.
Gladius James dubs himself a Singer Songwriter first and foremost, but that’s mainly because putting a genre classification on him ain’t so easy. It’s no easy accomplishment to weave so many various elements this seamlessly into one vocal performance piece. Man’s got flair, that’s for sure.
Ooh boy production duo Battle Tapes have dropped some of the finest nu-disco I’ve ever heard, with this ooey gooey sticky funk-pop track, So Broke. This upbeat, funky, hook-driven gold from LA singer/songwriter Party Nails comes in at the absolute last minute as a serious contender for best electro-pop song of the year.
