The Futureheads - Decent Days and Nights (Shy Child Remix)

Like every other British rock band this year, The Futureheads have dabbled with remixes as a way to increase the longevity of their songs. For this particular remix of "Decent Days and Nights" they have recruited Shy Child, an electro duo featuring former members of El Guapo and Touchdown. The reworked version adds M.I.A.-style dancehall beats and thick synths while layering vocal tracks for a call and response effect. Pretty cool. Check the bonus tracks for a live rendition of the original and an MP3 from Shy Child's last record.
