Back in November Devon Indie-ElectroPoppers Metronomy released the first single from their just then announced forthcoming new album Love Letters. I’m Aquarius was a slinky slice of SynthPop with a hint of psychedelia, and the track has now been given a huge dancefloor workout by Mr. Edwin Van Cleef. Check it out.
Cleef brings pulsating, bass heavy, groove to the tune. Embracing the original’s psychedelics and 60s shoop-shoop flavour, this reMix wraps all that up in a pounding bassline and some skippy beats. The vocals take second place to big synth stabs and pin-prick arpeggios here, weaving in and out of Cleef’s remix almost as another instrument, but it’s that big bass and drums that make this one so compelling.
Metronomy’s I’m Aquarius is out now, Love Letters is released 10th March 2014.
