Liars "No. 1 Against the Rush" (Vince Clarke remix)
Published May 17, 2012As previously reported, dark indie experimentalists Liars will deliver a twelve-inch single for "No. 1 Against the Rush" on May 29, one week before the track appears on their upcoming WIXIW LP. The single will also feature a remix of the original by English electronic pop icon Vincent Clarke (Depeche Mode, Erasure, VCMG, Yaz), and you can stream the redo now.
While Liars presented the track as an ominous synth jam with a brisk motorik beat, Clarke amps up the energy with his '90s-club-thumping rendition. Offbeat hi-hat, squirrely electronic bleeps and distorted guitar collude into an eerie, but slightly more danceable version of the number.
Mute delivers WIXIW on June 5.
