I can’t believe years pass by quickly. Here’s my list of the best Electro-Pop tracks of the decade. If you listen carefully to each of these songs, you can realize the evolution of sound. For instance, Pop music was influenced by Benny Benassi’s signature Electro rhythm in the early 2010s. We also witnessed a trend where underground European DJs got attention from the American mainstream audience. Later, indie artists got their turn into the spotlight thanks to social media and music blogs. Perhaps, in the 2020s, artificial intelligence (AI) will transform the way we perceive the music industry these days. Only time will tell if this technological advance will come true.
2010 ★ Robyn – Dancing On My Own
Sweden is a country with so many great singers. I think Robyn earned worldwide recognition with this Electro-Pop ballad which revolves around a gal who dances alone in a club while watching her ex-boyfriend with a new girlfriend. Hell yeah, I love drama!
2011 ★ Britney Spears – Hold It Against Me
Nobody could forget this hit entitled, “Hold It Against Me” by Britney Spears. After a series of scandals, the American Popstar bet for modern and refreshing melodies. The song itself feels poppy but it also features a touch of Dubstep, which was synonymous with innovation at that time. In my opinion, the album ‘Femme Fatale’ is her best work to date.
2012 ★ Madonna – Girl Gone Wild
Madonna is never out of fashion and all her singles are timeless. From my view, this is one of the sexiest tunes she has ever made. It’s not surprising “Girl Gone Wild” became her 42nd number-one dance hit on the Billboard chart. Believe it or not, the whole track was inspired by the androgynous Ukranian group Kazaky, who made a cameo in the black-and-white clip.
2013 ★ Empire Of The Sun – Alive
This list would not be complete without Empire Of The Sun. The most popular Australian duo of the 2010s is admired by millions of fans across the planet. I remember this track was featured in a video game, TV series, and movies. Immediately, “Alive” became a platinum-certified single in 2013. The chorus is so damn catchy!
2014 ★ Kiesza – Giant In My Heart
2015 ★ Grimes – REALiTi
Weird, original, and authentic, that’s how we can describe Grimes’ Electro-Pop melodies. “REALiTi” was actually an old demo which eventually became one of her best songs in 2015. Despite its original recording quality, this hypnotic song was praised by her fans in Asia, MTV, plus the blogosphere. It is worth mentioning it feels like the perfect radio-friendly track to sing in the car.
2016 ★ Niki & The Dove – So Much It Hurts
This Swedish duo deserves way more attention. “So Much It Hurts” is an incredible Electro-Pop ballad accompanied by an 80s style music video that’s impossible not to love. Likewise, the emotionally charged nature of this masterpiece makes you want to sing it out loud no matter what.
2017 ★ The Weeknd ft. Daft Punk – I Feel It Coming
In the middle of the 2010s, artists were more interested in analog synths and retro vibes. So, The Weeknd and Daft Punk joined forces to create “I Feel It Coming”. Here you have a wonderful anthem that reminds us of the King Of Pop, Michael Jackson. On a side note, lyrics according to the singer, lyrics were written in one hour.
2018 ★ NINA – Sleepwalking
The German singer based in London has a bright future ahead due to the futuristic vibes of her songs. With “Sleepwalking”, she takes Synthwave to the next level by infusing emotions and Pop sensibilities. She knows how to reinvent the golden age of 80s music and I love it!
2019 ★ Toro y Moi – Ordinary Pleasure
Chaz Bear aka Toro y Moi criticizes consumerism and the Throw-away society on this fun tune called “Ordinary Pleasure”. The American artist offers chilled vibes in combination with upbeat Disco beats. Definitely, he knows how to get you grooving in mere seconds, leaving listeners craving for more.

Watch this fresh music video from LA duo able machines. Their first track of 2020, “Intentions” comes accompanied by stunning dark visuals. In particular, you’ll see them performing this Electro-Pop banger in a room full of creepy mannequins. I have no other words to describe this song but I think it’s highly melodic, and lyrically conveying, especially for women. Indeed, it was born from a real conversation between Linus and Tay, about the true “Intentions” of men. In many cases, trying to figure out your lover’s desires, could lead your mind to levels of tiredness.
Mastered by Chris Gehringer (Halsey, Lana Del Rey, Lizzo) and mixed by Seth Earnest (Tessa Violet), this tune can easily emerge as a radio-friendly hit because it’ll be 100% relatable for the ladies. By planning ahead live shows for the next summer days, the duo promises an exciting agenda for the entire year. Stay alert for more news.

“Strange”, An Electro-Pop Gem Everyone Should Listen To
It’s not easy to find Electro-Pop gems these days. Luckily, the talented singer, Eivind Husebø brings hope back to listeners with a gorgeous song called “Strange”. Actually, it is a cover of Bloom, a popular Norwegian band that was active in the early 2000s. Believe it or not, Eivind’s elder brother, Kjetil, was part of this project, acquiring a good reputation with multiple performances in TV and local festivals.
According to Eivind, lyrics feel very personal and meaningful. In my opinion, it’s about overcoming fears, obstacles in order to enjoy freedom on your own. I like how passionate vocals dominate the chorus. At the same time, it is mostly driven by magical synths and electric guitars in terms of melody. Well, he certainly knows how to build up to a crescendo, and everyone should listen to “Strange” simply because it’s a pleasant take on the original.

The last time I heard her vocals layered over pleasant synths was a long time ago… Well, I’m glad to know she returns with a fresh album entitled, ‘Supervision’. The second single from her third studio album is called “Automatic Driver”. Basically, it revolves around a breakout, where things don’t seem to be working. On the other hand, its visually stunning clip shows the artist playing the role of a golf player. In conclusion, La Roux’s comeback is better than everything I have ever imagined in 2020.
