Listen IDLES remix Florence + The Machine’s ‘Heaven Is Here’
“IDLES are one of my favourite bands and I’ve been wanting to work on something together for a while.”
Following the release of her album ‘Dance Machine’ earlier this year, Florence + The Machine has shared a remix of ‘Heaven Is Here’ from IDLES.
“IDLES are one of my favourite bands and I’ve been wanting to work on something together for a while.” explains Florence. “It might be strange for people to think but I see a lot of symbiosis in what we do in terms of live performance. Connection above all else. Joyful rage and togetherness. A lot of people wished that Heaven Is Here was longer. And I think IDLES have done the perfect job at turning it into a much demanded dance track that loses nothing of the hex at its heart.”
IDLES‘s Mark Bowen adds, “Dance Fever is quite a cathartic album for me, speaking a lot to the yearning for the release of performing but also introspecting on the need itself. It lives on the line of tension between the need for release and getting it (is that not the best bit?) no more is this encapsulated on ‘Heaven is Here’. I wanted to sit with that tension but then also lavish in the release on this remix.”
