While still an ultimately warm and joyous occasion, British electronic trio Years & Years‘ most recent track, “Shine”, still falls on the chiller end of the spectrum when compared to Danny L Harle‘s invigorating remix.
The PC Music producer transforms the song from a tender and soothing affair to a blissful explosion of house-driven melodies and fluorescent synths. Like all things PC, lead singer Olly Alexander’s voice is sped up to a point just shy of chipmunk level, but the club-ready result still maintains the original’s sense of gentleness. Years and Years’ album Communion is due out on July 10.
