MNDR posted this video on her Facebook page the other day with the caption “Why doesn’t everyone sing like this?” This brought two thoughts to my mind. First, she’s right, why doesn’t everyone sing like this? This was a style of singing that you saw a lot of out of the UK, specifically Scotland (where this band is from), during the early New Wave period that kind of died out almost as quickly as it began. Then my second thought was, doesn’t MNDR sing like this? At least someone is keeping the tradition alive.
Here’s a bonus video of them playing “See Those Eyes” at Top of the Pops in 1982.
