Foster The People “Pumped Up Kicks (Dance Yourself Clean Remix)”

Mark Foster of Foster The People has discussed not playing “Pumped Up Kicks” anymore because of how some think it glorifies school shootings. That hasn’t stopped artists like 3Teeth and Giovannie and the Hired Guns from covering it nor has it stopped Dance Yourself Clean from remixing the track. Throbbing synths and a four-on-the-floor beat play behind the verses while the post-drop production sees them chop up the vocals over big synth-brass. It is a nice danceable take on a gone but not forgotten hit.
