HAIM – “Forever (Lindstrøm & Prins Thomas Remix)”

HAIM’s deliriously catchy “Forever” has a combination of spiky and smooth that recalls the first Pretenders album — it’s excellent, though not necessarily the type of thing you’d intuitively put in the hands of balearic gods Lindstrøm & Prins Thomas to remix. But thank goodness someone did it anyway. The Norsemen give the track a serious old-school disco bounce and bassline, bringing the HAIM sisters’ vocals to the front of the mix to strut it on the dancefloor. I liked the original a lot, but this is just a better track in every respect. Listen.
