Last month, Omaha New Wave band The Faint released their first new music in four years in the form of a tour-only four-song EP. Now, the band has unveiled a remix of the lead single “Evil Voices” by the tour’s opening act/fellow Omahans Icky Blossoms. The electropop trio take the inherent playfulness of the multi-faceted synth line and transform it into something more primal and malevolent, with frontwoman Sarah Bohling adding her own ice queen vocals to enhance the minimalist aesthetic and bursts of electronic rumbles. Download it below.
