If 2011 (or was it 2010?*) was about chillwave, then 2012 is about taking that lo-fi sound out of the bedroom, sticking it in some designer shorts and giving it a pop shower. With the likes of Yalls and MMOTHS taking the best element of chillwave (i.e. the sunshine) and mixing it with a more refined pop taste, we're presented with the natural progression we've been hankering for. 'Intella-pop' (intelligent-pop) is a genre we made up (we think) - and we stick with it.

'Summer', which features Superhumanoids, really is wonderful.

*It was probably 2010.
