Cambridge synth-poppers Passion Pit have given the remix treatment to "Birds," the first single from Swedish duo We Are Serenades' debut, Criminal Heaven. The new rendition retains the original's toe-tap-ability, but replaces the punchy, cinematic strings with shimmering synths and a gritty bass pulse.  

"'Birds' was one of the first songs we wrote," says We Are Serenades' Markus Krunegard. "It was written in Adam's rehearsal space in Stockholm. We were both sick that day, and everything sounded like garbage. But when we listened to it a couple of weeks later, and after adding strings that sounded like something from Dallas, it became our favorite track on the album."
