Listen: Lone remixes Wild Beasts’ “A Simple Beautiful Truth”

on April 23, 2014, 1:10pm

In recent months, the likes of Factory Floor, The Field, and East India Youth have all remixed indie-pop collective Wild Beasts. Today, another Englishman tries his hand, as producer Matt Cutler (better known as Lone) unveils his remix of the Present Tense standout “A Simple Beautiful Truth”.

Already something of a quirky, Talking Heads-inspired dance tune, the track is made even more strange and charming by Lone. With little more than some chunky drum machine beats and skittish synth, he delivers it into the realm of art school acid jazz, equally jarring and unavoidably infectious. The track would go great either during some strange rave or as the soundtrack to a remake of Pikmin on Xbox.

Listen in below:

Lone will release his new album Reality Testing on June 17th via R&S Records. If you haven’t already, check out “2 is 8”, “Airglow Fires”, and “Begin to Begin”.
