Stars – Dead Hearts (LightsoverLA Remix)

You might know LightsoverLA from the ridiculously good Two Door Cinema remix we posted a while back. This time around I’m posting their remix of Stars’ Dead Hearts and man talk about  a perfect Monday morning song. The vocals on this track are mellow, relaxing and hopeful to ease back into the painful world of work but the drums are dub step inspired and banging to keep you energized and thinking of the come up.

Tell me everything that happened, tell me everything you saw.
They had lights inside their eyes, they had lights inside their eyes…

Amy Milan and Torquil Campbell sound like their eternal lovers on this track as they have a conversation about whatever strange encounter it sounds like Amy had. Given the album cover and title of The Five Ghost one would think Amy had a ghost encounter and Torquil was trying to find out who they were and what happened. However, the supernatural experience is something of a metaphor for a relationship that they are reflecting upon. The kids she’s referring to are themselves and she’s remembering how happy and exited they once were – they had lights inside their eyes. Comparing this old reflection of herself made her realize how unhappy she was and how all the love is pretty much gone – Dead Hearts.

I could say it but you wont believe me
You say you do but you don’t deceive me
It’s hard to know they’re out there
It’s hard to know that you still care

I could say it but you wont believe me
You say you do but you don’t deceive me
Dead hearts are everywhere”

The memory of what they once were raises questions but also brings back emotions they once knew possibly reviving the dead hearts. This is a fantastic song and the remix takes it over the top. Definately sit back when you have a break and relax to this one, enjoy.

Two Door Cinema Club – What You Know (LightsoverLA Remix)

First of all, this track is dope. I’ve been seeing more and more of the Arizona production team LightoverLA and I can get enough. Their consistency and knack for the dance rocking the dance floor holds up with the best. I’ve been keeping my ears open to all their productions and my favorite by far is their remix of the Twelve’s What You Know. This production is clean, tasteful and the highs and lows in the arrangement is pure entertainment.

And I can’t say it’s what you know
But you’ve known it the whole time
Yeah, you’ve known it the whole time.”

This song is about a guy who can’t find the time to show love to his significant other. The girl knows what’s going on but somehow sticks around even though she’s only getting short changed. Living in the no time capital of the world I’m sure many of us can relate to this situation but I’m starting to look at that issue a little differently these days. There’s a lot of time in the day, so much in fact that even when we’re “busy” we really don’t utilize it correctly. If you really want to do something, you’ll be efficient with everything else so that you make time. I’ve added this to my list of warnings when dealing with people because it’s just not true. Time is one thing, priority is another, next time someone gives you that run down think about the difference and you’ll see the truth about the situation a whole lot better, enjoy.
