Between their reworkings for PB&J, Polly Scattergood, and Little Boots, NYC duo the Golden Filter have offered a pleasant reminder that not all remixes have to be inconsequential publicity vehicles. This pass at Empire Of The Sun’s “We Are The People” completes the set before the Filter focus on their own stuff.

Empire Of The Sun – “We Are The People (The Golden Filter Remix)”
In other news, Empire Of The Sun have jacked up the MGMT/future nativity of “We Are The People”‘s video to create “a digital first for the music industry, incorporating tracking pixels working as touch points or hot spots to guide users to free downloads, bespoke film content and an exclusive competition.” You “unlock” bonus goodies by clicking on visible and hidden (i.e. revealed with mouse-over) orbs for giveaways and behind-the-scenes footage. The orbs open new tabs/windows in your browser, so know that before you start playing with Empire’s balls at this link.
