MNDR

Published on April 9th, 2011

Amanda Warner and Peter Wade are MNDR, an electronic music duo hailing from New York City. Warner, the voice and face of MNDR, was introduced to Wade after moving from Oakland, CA to the Big Apple in pursuit of a freelance songwriting career. Wade is the founder of WonderSound Records and has produced for artists such as Melanie Fiona, Yoko Ono, and Jennifer Lopez. Since coming together in 2009, the pair has been recognized by The Fader, Pitchfork, and The New York Times and has toured with big names including Massive Attack, Mark Ronson, and Chromeo.

While all the credit goes to Wade for MNDR’s make-you-wanna-move-your-feet beats, the group’s personality ultimately comes from Ms. Warner. Growing up as a teenager, Warner became involved in Portland’s experimental music scene. She developed an interest in German techno and Detroit house, and began experimenting with her own music and style. She is a self-proclaimed “gear head” who has an affinity for audio equipment and intelligent dance music. She experiments with melodic vocals and sound machinery to construct experimental, synthpop music. Visually, she creates a unique display of fashion. On stage, she rocks signature oversized glasses and a hodgepodge of vintage clothing articles. In an interview with Esquire, Warner claims that her fashion sense is a part-conscious part-subconscious “organic sort of style.” Her sense of music and fashion, both novel and unique, truly go hand in hand.

Exactly one year ago, MNDR released its first and only EP entitled E.P.E. Their newest single, “Cut Me Out,” was released just last month. Rumor has it that we can expect a debut album in the next couple of weeks. In the meantime, enjoy the tracks below.
