While he’s been on a covers kick as of late, Twin Shadow is no stranger to the remix, having previously turned Solange’s “Sleep in the Park” into a New Wave ballad and added a sheen of darkness to Sky Ferreira’s “Everything Is Embarrassing”. For his latest aural renovation, Mr. Lewis tackles Brooklyn indie-rock outift SKATERS and their new single “Deadbolt”. The hyper-kinetic anthem has been recast as a funk/rock hybrid, with bits of quirky synth, random reverb, and spurts of dance-rock bass now creating a laidback, almost tropical vibe. Listen in below.
The original “Deadbolt” will be released digitally on October 29th and available as a limited-edition 7″ vinyl for Record Store Day’s Black Friday event (November 29th). It’ll also be featured on SKATERS’ debut album, MANHATTAN, due out February 24th via Warner Bros. Records.
