Wild Beasts, “Wanderlust (Factory Floor Remix)”

Considering how much we love the fang-bearing lead single from Wild Beasts’ latest album (key line: “don’t confuse me with someone who gives a fuck”), the following remix is jarring to say the least. A drastic reduction from longtime s/t favorites Factory Floor, it replaces the original’s airy synth-pop atmosphere with a bubble gun bed of liquified acid-techno loops and nearly nonexistent vocal melodies. The single will be released as a digital EP and a bonus 12” (complete with a new cut and another title track take from The Field) in the deluxe edition of Wanderlust when it’s released on February 25th.
