mp3: MS MR + CHVRCHES – “Hurricane” (remix)

It’s about time that two of our favorite deceptively-bubblegum electronic acts, MS MR and CHVRCHES, did something together, but we are kind of surprised by the result of CHVRCHES update to MS MR’s breakout single “Hurricane.” CHVRCHES posted a link to the remix on their Facebook with the accompanying message “MIIIIAAAMMMMIIIIIIII” and that’s kind of the vibe we’re getting here: it sounds like the music that’d play over the day-glo end credits of an ’80s teen movie. Quite a revision to the original’s anxious vibe, but, surprisingly, one that really works. Download it here.
