Wherever you are in this moment right now, you probably aren’t wearing your heaviest winter jacket, despite it being December. Was Al Gore right? (yes) Is global warming real? (duh) Regardless, it is winter but it basically feels like spring and that is reason enough to keep the sunny vibes alive. Even in Vancouver, the home of electro duo Young Bombs, it is only 46°F (8°C for our Canadian readers) which is basically shorts and t-shirt weather for them, eh? So put down your Elliott Smith records, slip into your skivvies, and shimmy up to the glimmering sound of Young Bombs’ remix of Coasts’ “Ocean.”
This impressive duo takes the indie pop group’s single, pitches it up, and adds an electro tinge to it that kind of sounds like tropical house, mixed with deep house, but in a good way. Arpeggios flutter under the vocals with a snap click track that you can’t help but to smile at. It is a beautiful reminder to take a breath and enjoy life wherever you are. You can grab a free download of the remix on their soundcloud, or in the player below.
