Don't be surprised if your heart pops out of your chest on this one, folks. "Whirring," one of our favorite tracks from The Joy Formidable's, um, formidable debut album The Big Roar, has been graced with the fiery touch of Innerpartysystem's sensational "this is just the way God made me" remix skills. Fortunately they're using their powers for good rather than evil here, and the result is nothing short of IMMENSE.
We've always thought of Ritzy Bryan and The Joy Formidable as Wales' answer to Karen O and the YYYs, and with this remix's sincere respect for rock 'n roll it can only be concluded that the Innerpartysystem feel the same. The same kick-drum-kick-off that amped up the original remains prominent, only now it finds itself alongside distorted face melting synths and the faint but effective sound of grenade pins hitting the floor, as if to warn the listener of the explosive climaxes that lie ahead. Throughout it all remains the same racing heartbeat tempo that provided the backbone of the original, only now you're panting and just trying not to throw up from excitement.
