It’s been a while since Two Door Cinema Club have been remixed to such impeccable calibre like what lays before you in just a few clicks. The Northern Irish trio’s new material proves to make for a versatile platform for reinterpretations with this Alex Metric version.
Their second album Beacon, which was released in August this year, is allegedly influenced by their love of Drake and Kanye West, albeit there is little evidence supporting this due to their excess of jaunty, brass tracks. Particularly in ‘Sun’, their sonic is seemingly more cotton candy than 50 Cent’s ‘Candy Shop’.
But with the musical aid of DJ Alex Metric, ‘Sun’ has been twisted into various shapes, and with a ramped up BPM, we’re totally digging the energised version. Instead of trying to force the track to the dance floor, Metric manages to embellish the rhythms and vocals with lashings of twinkling synths and percussion, which lends enough force to morph the track into a piece of jubilant indie electro.
‘Sun’ is released via Kitsuné on 19 November.
