Following the success of their sophomore album Mind Over Matter, SoCal chart-toppers Young the Giant are given a treatment by STINT – the man behind one of my favorite remixes of the year (his take on [SEBELL]’s “Promiseland” is stunning).
As usual, STINT finds new ways to twist what is an objectively decent track around the sharp corners of a new model, strengthening the TV On The Radio undertones of the original and turning a slower jam into a well-paced marathon. Again, STINT brings new live instrumentation into the mix with a trebly guitar/hand clap combo to serve as a brief intermission.
If you’re inspired (or think you can do better), Young the Giant has launched a special project for listeners to submit their own remixes of “Mind Over Matter” on their website. YtG also is wrapping up their tour with Kings of Leon, tour dates below the track.
