London Grammar – Hey Now (Tensnake Remix)

Tensnake’s heavy on the commission front of late.

We featured his darn right gloomy (but still ace) remix of Psychemagik’s appropriately-named ‘Black Noir Schwarz’ a week ago. This being just a matter of days after he’d got his grubby mitts on one of the stand-outs of the year so far, Duke Dumont’s superlative ‘I Got U’. The man’s in fine form and still managing to churn them out – so much so we can’t keep up. Here’s his equally impressive remix of ‘Hey Now’ by now-old Turks, London Grammar:

Creating an 80s-influenced sound, he’s added a healthy amount of bump ‘n grind to the tune, transforming it into a dancefloor-ready bop that still stays true to Hannah Reid’s impressive lung power. The remix is out 16th March, get your dibs on it here.

However if we were going to recommend you splitting ways with your hard-earned cash in the near future, we’d have to point you in the direction of the highly-anticipated debut album from Tensnake. About time, right? The album’s called ‘Glow’ and it’s out on Monday 10th March, via Virgin Records.

He’s uploaded a minimix to whet the appetite, and that it surely does. There’s a lot going on but it sounds like it’s full to the brim with noteworthy tunes (Jeremy Glenn’s vocal midway through sounds particularly good). ‘Glow’ is bound to follow in the footsteps of ‘Settle’ and take the more electronically-inclined to the Top of the Pops.

CHVRCHES – Gun (Groundislava Remix)

Back in May we featured the wonderful 80s-infused remix CHRVCHES crafted of MS MR’s ‘Hurricane’ (come listen if you missed it). Now the Glaswegian indie popstars are getting a taste of their own medicine. Current single ‘Gun’ has been given the once over by LA producer Groundislava, and the results are breezy, feel-good and perfect for the summer ahead (yep, we’re an optimistic lot). ‘Gun’ is out on Virgin Records 14th July and their long-awaited debut album ‘The Bones Of What You Believe’ is out on September 23rd. Pre-order it here.

CHVRCHES – Gun

Prefer Vs to Us? Think life should be lived in capital letters? Well you’re probably already a fan of Scottish three-piece CHVRCHES then.

Even if you don’t have the above preferences there’s a lot to like about their accessible-in-a-good-way electro-pop. If ever a tune deserved the tag ‘summer’, then their new single ‘Gun’ is it:

It follows on from their well-received ‘Recover’ EP, the standout tracks of which we’ve handily pulled out for you here:

And, for the Game of Thrones fans amongst you (and pretty much no-one else), here’s a DIY cover of the theme tune they recently knocked up:

It’s good mood music. As in it puts you in a good mood, not well-made scene-setting music. You get the gist.
