Number 9 in BBC's Sound of 2008, but number 1 to their many fans: MGMT!
A couple of years ago, Ben Goldwasser and Andrew VanWyngarden started out as a little known band called The Management, but now they're one of the biggest hypes around. Contrary to many other hypes, though, they dó make great, fascinating and fresh-sounding music. From psychedelica to disco, from glamrock to indie pop...MGMT is THE soundtrack to this spring!
MGMT - "Kids"
