After releasing an incredibly powerful track last week, IDLES have just shared another project they have been working on. IDLES guitarist Mark Bowen has shared an industrial remix of LIFE’S recent sing “Switching On.” The single is a powerful force of in-your-face industrial sound.
“I wanted to push those ideas further, exaggerate them to the point of becoming violent,” Bowen explains of the track. “I often think a remix should eschew the original vocal, all my favourite remixes are unrecognisable as songs, that felt inappropriate here. Mez [Green, LIFE frontman] stays front and centre where he belongs.”
