We dropped the first official offering from the rather amazing Clare Maguire in the form of "Strangest Thing" last month, and now we've got an official Bloodshy & Avant remix courtesy of our friends at NME Radar. We doubt this was originally conceived as a remix given how well it works as an alternate single version of the track, but regardless we're pretty enamored with it. With an instrumental that wouldn't be out of place in the catalog of Miike Snow - with whom Bloodshy & Avant moonlight as two-thirds of the band's creative core - the track's semi-tropical bounce stands in sharp contrast to the stark drama of the original arrangement, but it's a nice alternate version that's a more than welcome addition to our late summer playlist at Neon Gold HQ.
