Talented and suave Mark Ronson may be – but subterranean sea deposits can flaunt more charisma than him. Or maybe it was just his way of dealing with another of those irritating as fuck Channel 4 presenters.
At least during the most boring interview drawn out on celluloid they managed to play Bang Bang Bang – his latest single with an awesome music video. It’s fantastic and made even better with vocals from the talented – MNDR. What a find – Ronson may be dull – but he does know his Michael Jacksons from his Leon Jacksons.
MNDR is actually a duo of singer/song writer Amanda Warner and producer Peter Wade. Amanda’s journey matches the changing geography of music in the US – moving from California to New York (Brooklyn of course) to propel her music career. She soon met Wade and within a year was supporting Massive Attack and The Shins – and not to mention lending a hand on Mark Ronson’s single.
Amanda is well known for programming beats and recently put together the touring keyboard rig for the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. Most importantly though Amanda has a great and scarcely found voice that cuts through synths like a knife.
Watch out for MNDR and her massive glasses – you’ll see them everywhere soon.
Here is the synth laden single which also features on their EP:
