Young Galaxy Stretch Sam Roberts Band’s ‘Shapeshifters’ Into a Smooth Banger
Remix featured on limited, Record Store Day vinyl, due April 19
Back in February, Sam Roberts Band’s funky “Shapeshifters” inspired New Yorkers to loosen up and dance their way through subway stations. Now, the Canadian quintet’s Lo-Fantasy opener has received the remix treatment from with fellow Canucks Young Galaxy.
This new version of “Shapeshifters” contains the electronic buzzes and whirs found in the original, but this redux is less about cymbal-crashing dance-rock, and more about sleek keys, hand claps, bongo beats, and glitchy, stuttering vocals. Stream the remix below, and find it on April 19 (a.k.a. Record Store Day 2014), when it arrives as a limited-run vinyl via Paper Bag Records. Find the track list below, followed by U.S. tour dates.
