Synthy Award for Single of the Year

Synthy Awards Bandcamp Best Single

Alright, things are getting pretty serious now. It’s nigh impossible to narrow a list down of 2017’s best songs, nevermind shrink that list down to just 15 (I couldn’t cut it down any more than that)! Ultimately songs are going to be left off and unfortunately it’s unavoidable. If I could put a song on here from every band I covered over the past year I would, because honestly everyone has contributed a great deal of quality into the synthwave scene. I’ve spent the better part of a week trying to hone this down to a set songs that if a friend asked, “Hey, what’s this synthwave stuff you’re always talking about?” you could play any one of them as an example of how varied the genre is. Hopefully I succeeded on some level. Here are the nominees, as always, in no particular order:
