30. "Wings" by HAERTS
The indie beach-pop stylings of HAERTS surprised me in just how captivating it was. Thanks to the breezy guitars coupled with haertwrenching vocals, the band soon became a staple amongst the underground lovers of alternative. Hopefully, the rest of their debut album shapes up to be like the soaring "Wings."
29. "Marabou" by Antonia
This ridiculously beautiful lady is Antonia, a Romanian singer who makes some pretty good music. The music is so good that it managed to make this list. "Marabou" should be the soundtrack to every romantic summer getaway. Simply magical.
28. "What's Going On?" by Monsieur Adi feat. A*M*E
Why can't A*M*E be on more singles this year? Once again, she touched this slice of classical music turned chic disco-tinged tune with her magic. Monsieur Adi has been an excellent remixer and this song showed he can do just fine with his own stuff. Well until next time Monsieur.
27. "Real Slow" by Miami Horror
Disco rockers Miami Horror returned in 2013 with "Real Slow." One of the most honest songs about just living life as slow as possible with people you love, it really doesn't get better than this. And once again, a rave piano always gets to us good.
26. "Thrift Shop" by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis feat. Wanz
Shout out to my friend Andries for introducing me to Macklemore. With "Thrift Shop", we got a cultural phenomenon that wasn't too ruined by social media. Overall, a strong rap song that disguised itself as a dance song. And honestly, when we all look back to 2013, we'll all remember that little girl who asked "Can we go Thrift Shopping????"
