When they’re not trolling Instagram for shameless #selfies, The Chainsmokers, as it turns out, are busy hooking up with their ostensibly platonic friends. At least, that’s what we’re led to believe after hearing their club-ready remix of Sleeping With A Friend by Neon Trees.
The ‘Smokers put their patented big room spin on Neon Trees’ indie dance original, cranking up the BPM and extending the, err, climaxes with massive, blown-out synth layers and a relentlessly throbbing kick drum. If the sexual tension is running especially high between you and a friend, don’t sweat it–as the boys note: “We have both slept with friends of ours at some point in time and the results were great…”
So the next time you find yourself alone with that friend-crush of yours (you know the one we’re talking about), just oh-so-subtly crank The Chainsmokers’ Sleeping With A Friend remix and see if they take the bait. What’s the worst that could happen?
The Chainsmokers’ remix is due out April 29 on iTunes; the original mix comes from Neon Trees’ Pop Psychology LP, out April 22.
