After taking a lengthy break from remixes to work on their debut album Body Music, AlunaGeorge are back in the remix game for the first time in over a year. While many of Coldplay’s die-hard fans criticized the band for their drastic style change on Ghost Stories, it’s hard to find anything to complain about with this new tune. The minimalistic nature of Coldplay’s original sets up AlunaGeorge with everything the London duo needs to create a lavish and spellbinding remix. Scintillating synth glosses over Chris Martin’s modulated vocal number, with AlunaGeorge providing a more inspired and mesmerizing beat structure than the original track.
Maybe AlunaGeorge will lend a hand to Coldplay’s performance of the song when the duo opens for them at London’s Royal Albert Hall July 1 and 2.
