MNDR :: "Cut Me Out"

It could well be the year of MNDR. If latest single, "Cut Me Out," released on Mountain Dew's fantastically corporate (a terms of use agreement, really?) indie music project Green Label Sound, is any indication, she is one step closer to being the La Roux people don't know yet. "Cut Me Out" thumps and pulses in the verses before tumbling into an eighth note riddled chorus of layered vocals and attacking synths. She scorches her own creation, stalking through the arrangment in a combination of sensuality and rage. The synthetic, UB-40 horns at the end of the chorus are the only indication this is as fun as it is serious. MNDR, Amanda Warner, you have 11-months to kill all these people. Take that as seriously as you want.
