HEADS WE DANCE remix Depeche Mode cover!


Man, all my old school Arcadian friends are coming out of the woodwork! First South Central now Heads We Dance... we only need one more person to pop by to complete the original three bands that composed the original line up of the "Arcadian Family" (cough *Vincentwhoisquitebusy* cough)...

This is gonna be a wicked post because Heads We Dance have done a crazy awesome remix of Red Blooded Girls covering Depeche Mode's "Enjoy the Silence"! I was just watching that video for "Wrong" (the new Depeche Mode song for those of you who didn't catch it being splattered all over the various interwebs) and I think it's good... Can't wait to read "Best one since Violator" in the music press, right? Happens EVERY album lol...

Back to the matter at hand...

Yoni from HWD contacted me this morning, with this gem, and has this to say...
"We've gone for a bit of a Pet Shop Boys vibe on it - inspired by their winning of the Brit Lifetime achievement award!"

Red Blooded Girls- "Enjoy The Silence (Heads We Dance Remixx)"

Red Blooded Girls- "Enjoy The Silence (Heads We Dance Remixx)"

Indeed it does have that sound... like I've never been able to imagine this as a PSB song but now I can... even if it is girls singing :) I look forward to hearing more from them.

As far as our dear remixers, this band never manages to do anything wrong! I mean, look at their cover of "Computer Love"... covering Kraftwerk has been a big mistake for a lot of people, but not only did they manage to make the song their own, they made it sound exciting for the first time I can recall since the original (yeah Coldplay they did a better job by merely covering it, not 'interpolating' it or whatever you call that). Heads We Dance are a band that deserve the hype they get because "The Human Touch" has been one of the few songs to earn the distinction of "actually as good as Daft Punk"... plus "My Heart Is Set On You" has become a classic in the Arcadia/Albion frequently played setlist... I mean these guys would have to tank hard to not end up being one of the most respected indie dance bands this decade with material this fresh, and I don't see that happening any time soon.

In case you forgot Heads We Dance are now on This Is Fake DIY Records...
