Supajam’s Best Tracks of 2013: 20 - 16

Supajam’s Best Tracks of 2013 20 - 16

Another year has gone, and the musicians of the world have proved again that it’s possible to keep engaging audiences with the same old instruments. (This isn’t a call to Dyson to prepare something that plays a tune for 2014.) So, here is Supajam’s selection of the best singles of 2013, drawn from across our team. Let us know yours.

20. Thunder Clatter by Wild Cub
A song to keep ready for when you need to be happy. Tropical indie pop sounds mixed nicely with slightly gruff vocals to create the image of working people escaping to a beach.



19. What Is Love by Flutes
Yes, that ‘What is Love’. Flutes took their melancholy style and covered Haddaway, taking an old pop tune and creating a song of real gravitas and emotion. It came out as a b-side, and lived on in our hearts.



18. Fresh by Summer Camp
When Summer Camp sing about first love being the best, generations of indie fans were transported back to their youths, and people currently there given a vote of confidence. It helped that the song was stylish and smooth.


 

17. Pursuit by Geseffelstein
The sound of robots pursing you down a metallic labyrinth, Pursuit was not suitable for playing late at night as you walked home alone. It was, however, fantastic, driving, dark and uncompromising.



16. Sacrilege by Yeah Yeah Yeahs
In which the Yeah Yeah Yeahs bring in a gospel choir to kick their song into space. Never has the thought of going against scripture been so beguiling.
