10. Battles – Mirrored
Battles aren’t the most immediate choice for a Warp signing, but it makes sense. Their bouncy songs make the most of simple melodies, with a bright sense of whimsy that challenges genre norms. It’s hard to tell if the sounds are digital or organic, math rock or IDM, pop or challenging; there’s no telling where it’ll go next at any point. Mirrored is uncondensed, crazy, and captivating throughout every moment.
