Metronomy have shared an IDLES remix of their track ‘Wedding Bells’.
The original tune appears on the band’s just-released album ‘Metronomy Forever’, and it marks IDLES’ first-ever official remix for another artist.
IDLES’ guitarist and remixer Mark Bowen comments: “Metronomy were one of the first bands IDLES connected over. We saw their live show, when they had the push lights on their chests and did the awesome dance routines, that emboldened us to think more and put more into our live shows. There is also something about the way they use discordant notes and soundclashes in a very blissful way that informs much of our own songwriting.
“With this remix I wanted to replicate those halcyon days of DJing at indie discos; scrambling online for some bootleg blissed out remix to play to teenagers in a dingy room, high on life and disco biscuits. Metronomy Forever!”
Metronomy’s Joe Mount adds: “I’m absolutely stunned! I had no idea that the (joint) best band in the country could also turn out indie disco remixes like this?! Where the hell have I been? Thanks Dev, thanks Idles, your stamp of approval is probably the coolest thing that’s happened to us since we played Trash.”
