Listen to a New Remix from Factory Floor
- Words: Patric Fallon
London trio Factory Floor has been coasting on a wave of critical acclaim since the release of its XLR8R Pick'd self-titled debut LP, even landing the eighth slot in our list of 2013's best albums. And for the band's first outing of 2014, its three artists have remixed fellow UK outfit Wild Beasts' latest single, "Wanderlust," into a classic electro-inspired jam that disorients as much as it grooves. Factory Floor largely eschews singer Hayden Thorpe's falsetto vocal melodies on its production, infusing the slowly evolving track with snippets from the original song that are rendered more or less atonal. Lifted from a bonus 12" that comes with the deluxe LP version of Wild Beasts' upcoming Present Tense album, "Wanderlust (Factory Floor Remix)" will arrive alongside a remix from The Field via Domino on February 24.
