Here's a cool "song of the day" courtesy of Electric Youth. I heard this song performed live only a couple of weeks ago, and it translates to the studio quite well. Even cooler-- the band is working with Vince Clarke, a real hero of synthesizer music.
"We've released our new single 'The Best Thing' Today!
We worked on it with the amazing Vince Clarke (founder of our fav groups Depeche Mode, Yaz & Erasure) and plan to work further with him on our debut album once we come off tour."
Bonus: if you're unfamiliar with Vince Clarke, here's a classic look at Vince in the studio in 1985 (or 1987, if one of the comments is correct).
