Digitalism's new track, "Electric Fist," has a title that's all too fitting. The German duo kick off the electro cut – which they and collaborator Mike Diamond of Blood Diamonds impressively created in only a few hours – by packing in whirling bass and meaty thumps with snappy drum claps. But the smooth grooves soon melt into grimy synths, and Digitalism crank up the intensity with a morphing electro assault that'll crack craniums.

"Electric Fist" will be on Digitalism's upcoming EP, Lift, out September 30th.

“Love Is the Answer”

Utopia | 1977

The message of the Beatles' "All You Need Is Love" proved to be a universal and long-lasting one, which Utopia revisited 10 years later on this ballad. "From a lyrical standpoint, it's part of a whole class of songs that I write, which are about filial love," Todd Rundgren explained. "I'm not a Christian, but it's called Christian love, the love that people are supposed to naturally feel because we are all of the same species. That may be mythical, but it's still a subject." Though "Love Is the Answer" wasn't a hit, a cover version two years later by England Dan & John Ford Coley peaked at Number Ten on the Billboard singles chart.
