Junior Boys – “A Truly Happy Ending” (Diamond Rings Remix)

Pure Canadian electro-pop madness. Diamond Rings and Junior Boys are both out of small towns in Ontario, so it’s not surprising that they would be aware of each other’s music or even be friends. Junior Boys have just released their fourth full length, It’s All True, and Diamond Rings, real name John O-Regan, has just remixed highlight “A Truly Happy Ending.”

This is the last installment in his Rainbow Remix Series, where he has been remixing another artist every week and putting it up on his Soundcloud page. Both Canadian pop outfits have been fairly busy, respectively touring to promote their albums — Rings is re-releasing Special Affections in the U.S. and just signed to label Astralwerks — and this remix is a bold declaration that Canadian electro pop is taking over!
