A. G. Cook ft. Hannah Diamond - "Drop FM"
PC Music provided a bevy of options to include on this list's first cut. Danny L Harle, A. G. Cook, Hannah Diamond, QT, and SOPHIE have cumulatively submitted some staggering opinions on pop music in the last six months. But "Drop FM" was a frontrunner for the finals from the beginning. The hiccuping beat, body glitter synths, and self-assured geekdom are on full display. Hannah Diamond is at her pitch-shifted best, A. G. Cook is smearing the beat with all sorts of distorted electronica, and the straight-faced, unapologetic sincerity of it all shines through.—Graham Corrigan
