THE SONG: A Real Hero.

WHO: College & Electric Youth.

WHY IT’S HOT: This song paints such a vivid picture in my mind of the early 2010s. It was all over the place and for good reason. As far as neo-synth-pop songs go, this one stands out. It’s constantly teasing a break-out, exploding into a New Order-like frenzy. Yet it never does and its restraint makes the song amazing.

WANT MORE? Here’s a live version. It’s all about this song today. Actually quite like this version.

WORDS: brice.
