MONO: “Angel of 8th Ave.” By Gang of Youths.

THE SONG: Angel of 8th Ave.

WHO: Gang of Youths.

WHY IT’S HOT: For starters, the machine gun bass line that propels the song forward from beginning to end. Peek below the hood and you’ve got a drum beat battering in the background. Lead singer, David Le’aupepe’s mid-tempo and deliberate delivery gives the impression of his voice hovering somewhere in the ether. It’s not the obvious choice bit it is the best one. Shades of Ian McCulloch mixed with a little early Scott Walker.
