Little Dragon – Pretty Girls (Chet Faker Remix)
After sweeping up at the Triple J Hot 100 Awards this year, Chet Faker may be one of the most revered acts to surface from Australia in the last few years. His blended style of indie and electronic music draws the attention of fans from both pools with very little dispute. To keep his success ablaze, the Aussie producer/songwriter has released an official remix of Swedish band Little Dragon’s “Pretty Girls” that exhibits the dancier side to his work.
The Future Classic hit-maker may be known for his sultry vocals and delicate piano chords above his other skills, but this remix gives fans a little more insight into Faker’s electronic production capabilities. Warping Little Dragon’s vocal lines, the Australian musician must have been on a caffeine binge when making this track with the rapid pace of the intricate drum sequences, buzzing background synths, and atmospheric bass pulses. The pensive arrangement of disco, indie-pop, and dance elements layers a seemingly contrasting sound cluster into a flavorful fit thanks to Faker’s creative tenacity.
