Darwin Deez: Free
“Free” is but the first, scintillating, teaser from Darwin’s forthcoming sophomore album Songs For Imaginative People, which is to be released February 11. The single release is accompanied by remixes from Unicorn Kid and Billy.
Edinburgh’s Unicorn Kid has taken the track and moulded Darwin’s free spirit into a miraculously infectious jump-up pop anthem, with insanely catchy riffs, a gloriously melodic treatment of Darwin’s vocal, and hyper-speed bouncy beats to match.
East London’s Billy turns it out like Darwin’s been hangin’ at the after-party in cahoots with both Solange Knowles and LCD Soundsystem – whilst managing to bring out the intimate narrative of “Free”. It’s beautiful.
