Words: Saam Das
Nicolas Winding Refn's stylistic drama 'Drive' unexpectedly emerged as one of this year's most popular films, both commercially and critically. I wasn't quite as taken with its contemplative nature as others were but I did love its evocative eighties soundtrack. Listen to my pick from the soundtrack below, 'A Real Hero' by College featuring Electric Youth.
One of the best things about following music is seeing artists and tracks finally get the recognition they deserve. One of the saddest things is that it only happens rarely. But let's not dwell on the negative, and instead celebrate the positive. 'A Real Hero' is majestic electro-pop that warrants all the attention it gets, two years after it was originally released.
