Pet Shop Boys
Depeche Mode
John Grant
Years and Years
Chvrches


#1 is PSB, and #2 is DM - the rest in no particular order.
Really close with Hurts, Goldfrapp, Kraftwerk and Scissor Sisters too. Would be easier if a top 10! ;-)

To post a second time here are my top 5 streamed in Spotify this year:

That's out of the 1028 artists and 35,667 minutes I used Spotify with, I listen on other platforms too.

Joji is the one you may not recognise. Essentially a hip hop artist, leans towards a chilled out downtempo vibe. Best songs include Sanctuary, Slow Dancing in the Dark, Gimme Love, Like You Do.

Anyway nice thread. I'm not familiar with some of these artists like St Etienne, though looking now I've definitely heard a couple of their tracks. Vocal style is a bit like PSB.

A blues would be in B flat, pain defining wisdom,
but the soul is in the high hat, programmed in the system.
