Grouplove :: "Colours" [Captain Cuts Remix]

LA's Grouplove took us out at the knees last year with their demo for "Colours." It made our year end list and they made our feature on bands set to blow up in 2011. They are set for a spring LP release on Atlantic/Canvasback that will finally bring them the attention of the kids who want to like them but don't know it yet. Above, you'll find the official video for "Colours," an over-dramatic visual take which nonetheless features some awesome footage of front man Christian Zucconi running through a field. The camera is attached to his waist and pointed at his face, the perfect picture of energy, youth and exuberance. Below, spin through the Captain Cuts remix of "Colours," a chopped up and completely shuddering take on the original, featuring buzzing synths and a clap track big enough to claim "We Will Rock You" as a grandparent. It is the first excellent remix of 2011, edgy enough to bring this California band into the dark dance clubs of the Lower East Side. It's only the next stop on a tour that will bring this band just about everywhere.
