If 2011 was the year of synth pop and the measuring stick was M83's Hurry Up, We're Dreaming
, then 2012 may be the year where everyone tries to recapture the magic of Real Estate's Days
and its revival of slick pop. Whether it's the jangling guitar hooks of Hospitality, the mellow swirls of Beach Fossils, or now the reverby pleasure of Australian outfit Twerps
, electronica may be out and the chillwave guitar revolution may be in. Check out the new music video for Twerps, "Through the Day," below as another act trying to make their mark in this increasingly popular field.
