NEW MUSIC: Foster The People – Helena Beat (The 14th Minute Remix)

We had an original track from The 14th Minute a few days back (here). They’re back already with a disco remix. Listen only, I’m afraid.

The remix is for Foster The People and their track Helena Beat. The original track (here) is classic indie pop. The 14th Minute accentuate the indie disco, with the emphasis on disco and massed choruses. So cheery it may bring on the urge to run around like a child on excess Sunny D. This is full of high notes acending. Synths soaring. With anyone else this would be appallingly twee. But The 14th Minute know how to handle things to make them simple and joyful. Just give in and go with it.
