Brooklyn alt-pop quartet Body Language specialize in danceable, disco-fied hooks and just released their second LP, Grammar, on Lavish Habits and Om Records. Now you can take an exclusive listen to a remix of the album cut “Well Absolutely” from London-based producer Dubka. Flipping the script a bit, Dubka turns the thumping synth cut into a jangle-rock anthem that’s rather reminiscent of some of the Strokes‘ early material (if they really liked Katrina and the Waves’ “Walking on Sunshine,” that is). That’s not a bad thing, of course, as frontwoman Angelica Bess’ sun-drenched vocals sound right at home around the snappy, syncopated guitar riffs.
“When we approached ambitious young London-based producer Martin Dubka for a remix of Body Language’s ‘Well Absolutely,’ he thought that the original version already sounded like a remix,'” multi-instrumentalist Grant Wheeler explains to Rolling Stone. “His idea was to do a ‘de-mix,’ re-creating what he thought the original version of the song sounded like. He played all the instruments himself and created his sugary, feel-good pop rendition that zings like a bottle of cream soda on a hot summer day.”
