I don’t think RAC can do any wrong to a song. The collective has done their magic again to Two Door Cinema Club (who has a new album dropping real soon) and it’s nothing short of wonderful. The original sunny song has gone a fierce shade of red. It’s a hot track guys. I don’t know what it is about Alex Trimble’s voice (or Florence Welch’s for the matter (see the Spectrum Remixes EP)), but it easily jives with a neo-disco beat. His falsetto – which sounds boyish and fun on the original accompaniment - soars over the RAC’s bouncy bass and hip key-board melody. When this track comes on and I’m walking somewhere, my step matches the beat and life’s all good. It’s an easy walk with the bass giving me a little extra strut, but there’s nothing pretentious about it. This song is a plain feel-good tune, man.
If I were making a playlist for someone, this would be the first song on the track-list. The quick crescendo of the synth into a piano chord as Trimble’s youth-filled voice tells us we can make good things happen is a fine introduction to a playlist. Hand-claps and a melodic guitar picking over a smooth RAC beat makes for a solid track. Turn this track up and let RAC get into your bones and shake your shoulders, cooly bop your head, and lift you up a little. Whether a new track comes next or you step away from your music (why you would do that I do not know), this track should make you feel a little more confident you can “make something work.” If anything it’ll have you feelin’ good vibes the rest of the day.
