Song of the Year

There are five finalists for “Best Song of the Year” in Thursday night’s Radio Milwaukee Music Awards.

Five really different songs.

From hard-driving rock to hip-hop, from indie pop to electronic and spaces in between, the musical styles in this category clearly display the Milwaukee music scene’s range of genres — and talent.

Take a listen to the finalists below. Voting has ended…but, who would you choose?

And, if you want to come to the awards party, get tickets here.

 

1. “This is Our Year” — Lex Allen (featuring Lorde Fredd33)

Party vibe and empowering, positive message — to be true to yourself.  Plus, fun crowd-shout-along chorus: “This is our year – AY!” Lex Allen is one of two finalists in this category from New Age Narcissism (NAN).

Will it be his year?

 

 

 

 

2. “All My Girls” — The Living Statues

This single showcases the band’s hard-driving, garage-rock sound and lead singer Tommy Shears’ intensity. The Living Statues performed at last year’s Radio Milwaukee Music Awards.

 

 

3. “Milwaukee” — Maritime

The song calls Milwaukee a “one horse town.” Some of our listeners don’t see this as such a positive. But the song’s video certainly feels like a love letter to the city — and hey, it includes a scene at 88Nine — so we’ll give Maritime the benefit of the doubt.

 

 

4. “Doomsday” — Webster X (featuring Siren)

Webster X is the second finalist in this category from New Age Narcissism (NAN). And the spacey hip-hop track features another NAN member, Siren. As a reviewer wrote in Noisey, “The beat trickles in then — exhale — the words drop.”

 

5. “The Morning” — NONOYEAHOKAY

ELECTRONICHIPHOPPUNK. This band definitely likes mashing things together. In a good way. Led by Colin Plant’s vocals, NNYO call themselves “Electro Soul Pioneers.” This single is from their debut EP, “Dual.”
