Mp3-pack, Remixes Dept.: Alexander (White Arrows), Young The Giant (Two Door Cinema Club), Princeton (Kinema)


[Three remixes of three local artists to pump you up for the week ahead…]

Alexander, “Truth (White Arrows Remix)” ”“ Alexander, the solo project of Alex Ebert (Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros), gets remixed by L.A. band White Arrows (and Bootleg Theater residents this month). The original “Truth” is whimsically filled with whistling, but White Arrows, playing on the lyrical references to “darkness,” have given the song a heavy, ominous underpinning.

Young The Giant, “My Body (Two Door Cinema Club Remix)” ”“ The Orange County quintet’s lead single “My Body” helped propel the band into the international spotlight. Count Irish rockers Two Door Cinema Club (who recently had an impressive set at Coachella) as fans – they’ve given the song a light electro-pop foundation that still highlights that strong chorus.

Princeton, “To The Alps (Kinema Remix)” ”“ The L.A. quartet’s latest synth-dance tune, “To The Alps,” sounds like it’s on uppers after U.K.’s Kinema applied their disco touch on the track. If we didn’t know any better, we’d think this were a new Kisses song.
