Australian synth-rockers Van She have remixed Feist's new single "1234" that will be released in the U.K. on July 23. "1234" is one of my favorites tracks on Feist's new album "The Reminder." It shines in lo-fi simplicity with its rising strings, group harmonies and, yes, even a horn section and banjo.
The song makes a statement about growing up and taking love seriously. Feist sings, "1234, tell me that you love me more. Sleepless long nights that is what my youth was for. For the teenage boys. They're breaking your heart." Hey, no more head games, mister.
Van She adds some teeth to Feist's reflections in this accomplished electro revamp that evolves from smooth to gritty. Download it today. Guilt-free. (And make sure to watch the kaleidoscopic video for "1234" as well.)
